Cordova for WP7 Mango

Cordova WP7 is a .net application library that lets you create Cordova applications targeting WP7 Mango devices. Cordova based applications are, at the core, an application written with web technology: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.


Getting Started

  • copy the file CordovaStarter-x.x.x.zip to the folder : \My Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Templates\ProjectTemplates\
  • if you have just installed VisualStudio, you should launch it once to create this folder
  • if you prefer, you may add the project instead to the "Silverlight for Windows Phone" subfolder of "Visual C#". This is up to you, and only affects where the project template is shown when creating a new project. Also, You may need to create this folder.
  • Launch Visual Studio 2010 and select to create a new project
  • CordovaStarter should be listed as an option, give your new project a name
  • Note: The description will let you know the version of Cordova you are targetting, if you have multiple templates.
  • If you do not see it, you may have to select the top level 'Visual C#' to see it
  • Build and Run it!


When you add or remove files/folders in the www folder you will need to do the following

  • ensure the new item is included in the project ( Content ) This includes ALL images/css/html/js/* and anything that you want available at runtime.
  • Do not modify the CordovaSourceDictionary.xml file which is included in the project, it is auto-generated for you when you build.

Known Issues

You cannot deploy (and thus debug) the framework if you want to make use of various Media features by default (like taking a picture, capturing audio, etc.). This is because the Zune software locks the media library and somehow that affects your device. For a workaround, please check out this MSDN blog article.
