Requirement: Build iOS/Android app using existing Polymer project.


There’re lots of tools/platforms to build an app from HTML5 project, such as Trigger.io, Intel XDK, PhoneGap, Apache Cordova. I choosed Cordova to build my first html app;

  1. Install Apache Cordova by npm:
    $ sudo npm install -g cordova
  2. Create a Cordova project using cordova CLI;
    $ cordova create hello com.liguoliang.app HelloWorld
  3. Navigate to the project folder, add platform:
    $ cordova platform add ios/android
  4. Build project:
    $ cordova build
  5. Emulate the app:
    $ cordova emulate ios/andorid

Note: It is required to install Xcode or Android SDK/Tools for simulating.  you may follow the Cordova CLI message to installed the required sdk/tool.
