Windows Store App using HTML5/JS + WP8.0 + Cordova

    Question

  • Hello,

    like you maybe know, cordova is supported in Visual Studio, and using cordova you can build apps for WP8.0 and Windows 8... (and ios, android). I am having problem im my project, because the ios and androids devs do the html/js and the apps works well in their devices, but in WP 8.0 not works so well, i think the problem is related with IE + Css + JS....and sometimes works well and sometimes not (is a drama!!) .

    I have a lot of doubts in their implementation but i don´t have so much experiencie with JS+Css (i am a XAML/C# dev). Yesterday i did a test, for my project i added the platform Windows Stores app, and the result was bad, because the libs we are using in the project is not supported in winstore apps. We use jquery.js jquery.19.2.min.js and jquery.mobile-1.4.2.min.js, and in WinStoreapps only jquery2.2 is supported, but we used it the app don´t works well in their device.... in this moment i don´t know what do, and i need options about it, that i search in web i have doubts if Angular.js is the best solution for it....but i am not sure because never use it or jquery... Is Angular.js supported in WinStore apps?

    Is there any dev with experience with it that can help? i am having dificults to find a place to get support about it, too...

    Thanks

  • For help with PhoneGap you'll be best off asking on Cordova's forums.

    I know that folks have successfully used PhoneGap and Angular individually in Windows Store apps, but I don't know the details or if they've used them together. Somebody who has done this may be able to provide more information, but I suspect you'll be more likely to find them at Cordova.

    As a Xaml/C# dev you might want to look at Xamarin for cross-platform code.
