Apache Cordova Hello World Application
A simple Hello World application that serves two purposes:
- It is used as the default app template when creating new projects
- It is a reference for building and publishing custom Cordova Templates
Structure of your template
template_package ├── package.json (for your template package to be published on npm) ├── index.js └── template_src (contains template files) ├── package.json ├── config.xml └── (files and folders that make up the template)
All files outside of
template_src are used to define parameters about the template. These files are not copied over at creation, so feel free to add a README or any other files outside of template_src.
index.js points to where the template exists. You'll see that index.js usually looks like:
var path = ;moduleexports =dirname : path;
package.json holds information about the template itself like its name, version etc. All templates should contain the keyword
"cordova:template" so that the template is searchable on npm. For example:
All files inside of
template_src compose the template from which a user would desire in order to create their project. Everything in this folder is copied over to the created project.
The package.json in
template_src should be filled with information that describes the project that would be created from the template.
