The fastest and easiest way to use PhoneGap 3.0 is with the new Command Line Interface. This guide shows you how to create applications and deploy them to various native mobile platforms using the phonegap command-line interface (CLI). This tool allows you to create new projects, build them on different platforms, either locally or on a remote server, and run them within an emulator or device. You can also use the CLI to initialize project code, after which you use various platforms' SDKs to develop them further.
The new version of PhoneGap is a new modular architecture, which the company says will "allow your application to be small and fast." Developers can simply select the desired API, after which they will automatically install the required plugins.
In this release, Adobe has also added two new API-Interfaces: App Browser for display of web pages in the application and the new Globalization API for checking the language and time zone of user.
Adobe has combined command-line tools for working with PhoneGap on different platforms. Previously, developers had to learn new vocabularies when they switched between platforms, but now the company says that is the past.
Adobe tools are integrated with PhoneGap Build by service of the company to compile PhoneGap projects - so you do not even need to install the SDK-native platform for compiling applications. Adobe has also added to the PhoneGap Build support for custom plugins a few days ago.
It is worth noting that members of the open project Apache Cordova have done the big part of the work, which is based on the PhoneGap project and it has also released version 3.0 of its framework.
Adobe intended to add support for PhoneGap Firefox OS and Ubuntu. Now developers are working on the transition to iOS 7.
Our company support this new version of PhoneGap 3.0 and we started to develop several projects with it's help.
