Instead of just showing short snippets of code to explain a particular API, the book is chock full of complete, contextual examples. Inside the book, you’ll find more than 30 complete Cordova applications; chapter content highlights how those applications look and work on Android, iOS, Windows and more. The sample applications provide developers with applications they can run on every Cordova supported mobile device platform to see exactly what the API does, how it works and what the limitations are on each platform.
Through realistic "cookbook" example code, pioneering enterprise mobile developer John Wargo helps you master the Cordova APIs and understand how to use them in your Cordova applications.
