Creating a new project

Creating a new PhoneGap project is easy thanks to PhoneGap CLI. Unlike older versions of PhoneGap, where we needed to download the project template manually, we can create new projects directly from the command line. With just a single command, we can create a new project and start writing our application.

How to do it…

To create a new PhoneGap project, open your terminal or cmd. Then go to the directory where you want to maintain your source code. Run the following command:

phonegap create hello com.myapp.hello HelloWorld

It may take some time to complete the process, so be patient and let PhoneGap CLI do its magic. You will see some message during the project creation process:

Creating a new project progress
