Cordova

Hosted by the Apache Foundation, Cordova is an open source project that creates a set of device APIs allowing a mobile app developer to access native device function from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Description

This Project Provides: Device APIs for JavaScript source code.

The Value of the Cordova-Tizen Project

Hosted by the Apache Foundation, Cordova is an open source project that creates a set of device APIs allowing a mobile app developer to access native device function from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

When using the Cordova APIs, an app can be built without any native code from the app developer. Instead, web technologies are used, and they are hosted in the app itself locally (generally not on a remote http server). The APIs are consistent across multiple device platforms and built on web standards; the app should be portable to other device platforms with minimal to no changes.

Tizen is an operating system initiated by Samsung and Intel to supports a broad range of devices, from desktops to in-vehicle service to mobile systems. Cordova implementation for the Tizen operating system is a JavaScript wrapper library. Cordova Web APIs have been mapped on top of Tizen Web APIs available in the Tizen SDK.

Who It’s For

Cordova provides an API that can be used by application developers, operating system vendors, original device manufacturers and system integrators to drive stronger overall system performance.

Project Specifics

Cordova-Tizen is written largely in JavaScript and is distributed under the Apache License, version 2.0.

About Intel Involvement

Intel is a leading contributor the mapping of Cordova APIs to Tizen, enable market choice in mobile, in-vehicle, and other embedded operating systems for application developers. Tizen has been optimized through open source for the Intel® Atom™ processors and Intel® Core™ processors.
