Create an iPhone PhoneGap application in 2 easy steps

with 7 comments

Based on Jesse’s work on PhoneGapLib, I created a PhoneGapLib installer that will install the lib unto your computer, but most importantly, it will set a Xcode global variable to allow the PhoneGap Xcode template to work. The PhoneGapLib installer will also install a PhoneGap Xcode template.

Creating a PhoneGap iPhone project has never been easier. This way also, if PhoneGap core is updated it will not affect your code. The main parts of the code should already be checked-in (see Jesse’s post for the url). This is a work in progress. [Updated: Download a preview version]

To download the code and build the installer, go to and read the for build instructions. No binaries are provided at this time.

Microsoft Gestalt TextMate Bundles

XAML is a declarative syntax (via XML) to enable vector graphics in the browser (rendered using Silverlight). Silverlight is used to interpret the Ruby and Python code also.

To download the TextMate bundles, go to:
