Cordova Hello World with AngularJS & Bootstrap

· Mobile Zone
This article presents a quick code sample to get started with Cordova or PhoneGap and AngularJS and Bootstrap CSS framework. The interesting thing to note is that the development can be be same as if you are developing an AngularJS & Bootstrap Web app. This is inline with PhoneGap or Cordova being used to create a Hybrid mobile app. Following are simple steps to get started:
  • Create a HelloWorld app with Cordova or Phonegap. Take a look at our previous article on how to get started with Cordova Hello World app.
  • Once setup, what you have got is www/index.html where you could put your Bootstrap CSS path and AngularJS path.
  • As like a normal web page, create an Angular app with ng-app and ng-controller directive. Use Bootstrap “.col-xs-*” class to align UI field for smaller mobile devices.
  • Build and run. That is it.
Cordova/PhoneGap & AngularJS HelloWorld – Code Example

Pay attention to the angular ng directives specifying ng-app, ng-controller and ng-model. Also, notice the angular template (data binding) to display the data.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no" />
<meta name="viewport"
 content="user-scalable=no, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, width=device-width, height=device-height, target-densitydpi=device-dpi" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/index.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.min.css" />
<meta name="msapplication-tap-highlight" content="no" />
<title>Hello World</title>

<body>
 <div ng-app="HelloApp" ng-controller="HelloCtrl">
    <form role="form" method="post" action="#">
        <div class="form-group form-group-lg">
            <label class="col-xs-2 control-label">Name</label>
            <div class="col-xs-12">
                <input type="text" class="form-control input-lg" name="name" ng-model="name" />
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="col-xs-10">
            <h3>Hello {{name}}!</h3>
        </div>
    </form>
 </div>

 <script>
     var helloApp = angular.module("HelloApp", []);
     helloApp.controller("HelloCtrl", [ '$scope', function($scope) {
     $scope.name = "Calvin Hobbes";
     } ]);
 </script>
</body>
</html>
