  • Native mobile development with HTML5 and CSS -  Thanks to Apache Cordova, previously known as PhoneGap, it is possible to deploy your app build in regular HTML5 and CSS as a mobile app to all of the major mobile platforms like iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry 10, Amazon Fire OS, Firefox OS and more!
  • Build native mobile apps right from within Dreamweaver - No need for complicated installations and command line wizardry. Now you can run all the needed commands right from the dedicated floating panel and see the desired output. Run, build or emulate is a single click away!

  • Quickly define a Cordova site for your project - The process is pretty simple as you only need to select a folder for your project, enter a title, an ID, and the DMXzone Cordova Builder will do the rest for you.
  • Edit Cordova site configuration - With a single click you can edit your title, ID and description for your Cordova site.
  • Support for all major mobile platforms - DMXzone Cordova Builder automatically queries the supported platforms and allows you to install the needed components! This way you can concentrate on your app and not on the building tools – they just work!

  • Automatic system requirements checks and component installation - Do you have all the required components, SDK’s and building tools installed? DMXzone Cordova Builder checks for that before allowing you to install a specific platform, informs you which components are missing and installs them for you or provides you with clear instructions and links how to download and install those yourself. This way your computer is directly ready for cross platform mobile development!

  • List and choose available emulators for the selected platform- You can choose between many emulators with different screen sizes. Each emulator can be selected from the target to run on list. 

  • List and choose from the connected devices to run your app on - Open your app directly in the desired platform emulator, or run it on the connected device. From the handy toolbar you can choose directly to build a project and run it on a specific emulator or on your connected device!

  • Maintain your project in the platform native development studios - Once you choose to install the desired platform to work on, you can easily open the generated project in the platform dedicated development tool, like Xcode for iOS, Visual Studio for Windows and Windows Phone or Android Studio for Android. From there you can do more things like publishing to their native app stores.
    • Android Studio for Android
    • Xcode for iOS

    • Visual Studio for Windows
 
    • Firefox WebIDE for FirefoxOS
 
  • Easy access to the platform guide - If you need additional information about the platform you're developing for, with a simple mouse click you'll be redirected to the platform page. 
    • Intelligent actions toolbar - The toolbar of the DMXzone Cordova Builder provides you with shortcuts to most common actions like adding platforms, running emulators, building and more. We call it intelligent because it shows you actions that only apply to the currently selected platform and hides actions that do not apply. This way you know what is available directly. And if you still want to enter some commands by yourself you can, just read on about the DMXzone Cordova Builder integrated shell.

    • Smart Cordova command line shell at your disposal - If you like to enter some of the Cordova commands by hand you can do so directly in Dreamweaver. Just type the required Cordova CLI command in the DMXzone Cordova Builder command shell. You can type any Cordova command you wish – just omit the first word “cordova”. You can find a list of available commands at the Cordova Command-Line Interface guide or just type “help”

    • Progress and color coding at the DMXzone Cordova Builder shell - When you run Cordova commands you will see a nice progress circle that you can even cancel if you want to stop the process. Also full color coding is supported so you will see various messages in different colors depending on their status.
    • Support for platform native command in the DMXzone Cordoba Builder shell (only available in Dreamweaver CC+) - Sometimes a platform requires its own additional shell commands. Those are described in the platform guides / Shell tool guide for the specific platforms. You can run those commands directly in the DMXzone Cordova Builder shell and they will be targeted to the currently selected platform – just prefix them with / for example: /run –target:simulator –keystorepass:123

    • Support for Windows universal apps targeting both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 - Now you can just choose to build Windows Apps! No need to define separately for which Windows – it is all Universal! So your app targets both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. You can selected from the dropdown menu which emulator and Windows version you want to try your app on. Note to run the Windows 8 Emulators a Windows 8 Pro is required and Hyper-V enabled.
     
     
    • Automatic web content switching for Windows apps - Normally Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 apps are very much restricted in the so called local context. This prevents you from accessing any additional web resources like Google Maps, running Ajax or loading some webfonts. DMXzone Cordova Builder automatically converts your app so it runs in Web Context and have all the access you need. This will be the default with Windows 10 but we deliver you this freedom for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 as well!

    • Full Support for BlackBerry 10 and its simulator - Now you can try your app on the latest BlackBerry 10 simulator! Just install it and run it with the VMWare player. You can define targets with the BlackBerry WebWorks UI and those will be automatically detected by the DMXzone Cordova Builder so you can deploy your app directly in the BlackBerry simulator. Note that if you are on Windows 8 Pro – make sure Hyper-V is off otherwise VMWare Player won’t run.
    • Full Support for Firefox OS and its simulator - You can try your app on the latest Firefox OS simulator! Just open Firefox WebIDE and run it.
