Cordova

Cordova

Created by Nitobi, Apache Cordova forms one of the popular mobile app development platforms. After the purchase of Nitobi by Apache it was rebranded as PhoneGapthen was finally named Apache Cordova. Instead of platform-specific APIs Cordova encourages the developers to be dependent on HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript for building their applications. Thus the applications built with Cordova are neither purely native mobile app nor purely web-based and are thereby hybrid. The command-lines of Cordova runs on Node.JS and is available worldwide on NPM. Developers who want to extend the compatibility of their apps to different platforms and are interested to mix native application components with a WebView often have Cordova as their first choice.
