Advanced: Build Windows Apps with DMXzone Cordova Builder

In this tutorial we will show you how to build Windows apps, using DMXzone Cordova Builder.
*You can also check out the video.

How to do it

  1. We've already built a simple, static app in Dreamweaver, using DMXzone Bootstrap 3 and HTML5 Slideshow 2 extensions.  First, let's add the Windows platform to our Cordova project. Open the platforms menu and select Windows.

  1. Click yes to confirm the installation of the platform. All the supported files for Windows platform will be installed.

  1. We're creating universal Windows app so you can choose between Windows 8.1 and Windows phone 8.1. We choose Windows phone.

  1. You can choose between several different emulators for various screen sized. We'll be using the default one (1). Once you select it, click the emulate button and the emulator will appear (2).

  1. The application appears in the emulator.

  1. If you want to run your app on a connected device, you need to open Visual Studio first from its icon in DMXzone Cordova Builder.

  1. Visual Studio is the main development environment for Windows apps. In order to register your Windows phone, click tools (1) and from Windows phone 8.1, click developer unlock (2).

  1. We've already connected a Windows phone to computer and now we can deploy our application on it. You need to have a Microsoft account to download a certificate and register a developer phone, which you can get at the Microsoft Windows store.  You can run the emulator directly from Visual studio or select the device (1) in Dreamweaver and click the emulate button (2).

  1. You can also emulate your app in Windows 8.1 desktop. Select it from the list (1) and click run in emulator button.

  1. The emulator opens the site as a fullscreen app. That's how easy it is to build apps for Windows.
