ember-cli-cordova Build Status Gitter

I will not be focusing on backward compatibility with older ember-cli versions as it's moving too fast and the API is constantly changing. I will always have this working with the latest stable release of ember-cli.


To provide a toolchain tightly integrated with ember-cli to make developing hybrid apps with cordova and ember as simple as possible.

Supported Platforms

Android and iOS. While we don't plan on actively supporting other platforms, feel free to open an issue or submit a pull request.

Required Ember Versions

Releases as of 0.1.0 require Ember 2.x and ember-cli 2.3.0.

The lastest release for Ember 1.x is 0.0.19 and requires at least ember-cli >= 0.1.1

Please see our Getting Started guide here

npm link
ember new CordovaTest
cd CordovaTest
npm install --save-dev ember-cli-cordova
