ConfiGAP 2.0a released!

Leif Wells (@leifwells) and I are proud to release the new version of ConfiGAP! This version was a complete rewrite of the entire application. We moved off using Adobe AIR and Flex as our technology stack, onto one based on Electron and AngularJS.

There were a lot of learning pains along the way, but that was part of the reason to migrate, to learn a new set of skills.

The development took a bit longer than expected, in part, some additional technology migrations. Our early efforts were based on using nwjs as our desktop shell, but as that project seemed to slow in its development, we shifted over to the Electron shell.

Also, our initial UI layer was built using Bootstrap, but we opted to explore using Zurb for Apps instead. Although we got the job done with Zurb, we are now looking to migrate again, this time to Angular Material. In addition, we are also planning to upgrade from Angular 1.x to 2.

There are some additional features that we will be adding in coming weeks (Better Windows Platform support).

We hope you find ConfiGAP useful in your PhoneGap Build workflow. Drop us a line if you find an issue or want a feature. Download it from configap.com.
