Lianja App Builder includes Adobe Phonegap Build integration for generating executable self-contained Mobile Apps for iOS and Android.

PhoneGap Apps require a connection to Lianja Cloud Server running either on-premises or in the Cloud.

Quick Start Guide

Create a Web or Mobile App.
Use JavaScript or TypeScript as the scripting language.
Test the App in a Web, Tablet or Phone App View and/or Live Preview.
You configure phonegap Apps in the "Phonegap" Tab of the Build workspace.
When you click the build button the phonegap App will be built remotely in the Cloud using Adobe phonegap build.

With Phonegap you can package up a Lianja Mobile App into an executable for iOS and Android. You develop your mobile Apps visually in Lianja and can include TypeScript and/or JavaScript custom code, but the target is a Mobile application which can be submitted to the Apple and/or Google Play App stores.

After creating your Lianja Mobile App, you build the Phonegap executable in the Phonegap tab in the Build Workspace.
