Cordova is a platform that is used for building mobile apps using HTML, CSS and JS. We can think of Cordova as a container for connecting our web app with native mobile functionalities. Web applications cannot use native mobile functionalities by default. This is where Cordova comes into picture. It offers a bridge for connection between web app and mobile device. By using Cordova, we can make hybrid mobile apps that can use camera, geolocation, file system and other native mobile functions.
All of the examples provided can be used as a starting point in your own apps. We will also try to explain theory behind Cordova so you can get better picture of building process of hybrid mobile apps. We will try to show you examples as simple as possible so you can understand the essential principle of the Cordova development.
