"hello phonegap" svelte template

A combination of the phonegap Hello World template and svelte templates

This is a project template for Svelte apps using Phonegap It lives at

To create a new project based on this template using degit:

npx degit lpshanley/svelte-phonegap svelte-phonegap
cd svelte-phonegap

Note that you will need to have Node.js installed.

Get started

Install the dependencies...

cd svelte-phonegap
npm install

...then start Rollup / Phonegap:

npm run dev

NOTE The first time you run npm run dev will take MUCH longer than any subsequent runs. Phonegap-cli needs to create the \platforms and \plugins directories in your project. You will know that your project is ready once you start see a load of output from your console. Note that this can take 5-10 minutes depending on your PC and connection speed. On the first run you will see phonegap put out an error that says The "path" argument must the of type string.... ignore this as this is because the project is still building the platforms and plugins just allow it time to build.

Navigate to localhost:3000. You should see your app running. Edit a component file in src, save it, and watch your changes update automatically.


android-minSdkVersion (Android only)

Minimum SDK version supported on the target device. Maximum version is blank by default.

This template sets the minimum to 14.

<preference name="android-minSdkVersion" value="14" />

<access ...> (All)

This template defaults to wide open access.

<access origin="*" />

It is strongly encouraged that you restrict access to external resources in your application before releasing to production.

For more information on whitelist configuration, see the Cordova Whitelist Guide and the Cordova Whitelist Plugin documentation


Content Security Policy (CSP)

The default CSP is similarly open:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" content="default-src * 'unsafe-inline'; style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'; media-src *" />

Much like the access tag above, you are strongly encouraged to use a more restrictive CSP in production.

A good starting point declaration might be:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" content="default-src 'self' data: gap: 'unsafe-inline'; style-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'; media-src *" />

For more information on the Content Security Policy, see the section on CSP in the Cordova Whitelist Plugin documentation.

Another good resource for generating a good CSP declaration is CSP is Awesome


This section is currently untested. Because svelte builds the needed files on compile deploying this should follow any standard phonegap deployment process.
