ConfiGAP 1.3.11 released

ConfiGAP

I released an update to ConfiGAP today. One of my users found a couple of issues that snuck in. The first was the size value for retina iPad splash screens. There was conflicting documentation on the size, but I think I have the proper value. The other was an issue with setting the icon and tile images for Windows Phone.

I also added support for PhoneGap 3.4. Now PhoneGap Build has NOT enabled support for this version yet, but I figured it should occur really soon. Well, on April 8th, PhoneGap Build announced support for PhoneGap 3.4 🙂

If you find an issue, or have a comment, please drop me an email.

 

Lynda.com

I am very excited to announce that I am developing my first course for lynda.com! It is quite an honor to be to working with such a talented group of people. A big thank you to James Williamson, who helped craft my demo movie. My initial effort will be “Up and Running with PhoneGap Build”.

This going to be a fun and exciting challenge. One the first challenges will be creating the sample app to showcase the service.

ConfiGAP updated

ConfiGAP

Demoing software always seems to be one of the best ways to find a bug in your application. Recently I was demonstrating ConfiGAP, and stumbled across a bug that prevented you from switching between the platforms for the application icons. Sigh…

Verion 1.3.6 fixes this ‘issue’ and adds support for PhoneGap 3.2. Now, be aware that PhoneGap Build  3.2 is NOT supported  yet, but should be soon.

We are looking to add a lot of the new settings that are available to PhoneGap Build. The UI is mostly in place, it is the parsing and export code that is still being worked on.

ConfiGAP updated!

ConfiGAP

PhoneGap Build has just gotten an update, and we have been working on adding some of the new features into the latest version of ConfiGAP. Here is a breakdown of all the new features:

 

PhoneGap v3.0 Support!

Obviously this is the big one. You can learn about this release here.

Platform Specific Builds

PhoneGap Build now supports the ability to control which platforms you wish it to build for.

Custom Plug-ins

Since the list of third party plug-ins keeps growing (yeah!), we needed to find a solution for developers who are using this capability with their projects. ConfiGAP will now read and save the markup for any custom plugins that you may have added. There is no user interface for interacting with them at this time.

Core API Plug-ins

Another major change to PhoneGap was moving all the APIs to stand alone plug-ins. This allows for smaller and faster applications, as you no longer need to include any unwanted APIs into your application.

XXHDPI Icon support

We added support for this new icon size for Android.

iOS7 Icon support.

Support for these new icons sizes. PhoneGap Build does not yet support them at this time. Rumor has it that this will be added in v3.1.

What’s next?

The PhoneGap Build team has also enabled several other platform settings (https://build.phonegap.com/docs/config-xml#preferences), and we will be looking to add them in the next build.

You can download the application here.

Announcing configap.com!

ConfiGAPOur ConfiGAP application has been updated and has a new home at www.configap.com. ConfiGAP is an application designed to help you create the config.xml files used by Adobe® PhoneGap™ Build.

This version’s features are:

  • Enabled support for access elements
  • Supporting new plug-in system on PhoneGap Build
  • A few bug fixes as well.
