Install Cordova Or Phone Gap On Windows

Cordova is an open-source mobile development framework. It allows you to use standard web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript for cross-platform development, avoiding each mobile platforms' native development language. Applications execute within wrappers targeted to each platform, and rely on standards-compliant API bindings to access each device's sensors, data, and network status.
Use Cordova if you are:
  • a mobile developer and want to extend an application across more than one platform, without having to re-implement it with each platform's language and tool set.
  • a web developer and want to deploy a web app that's packaged for distribution in various app store portals.
  • a mobile developer interested in mixing native application components with a WebView (browser window) that can access device-level APIs, or if you want to develop a plugin interface between native and WebView components.
