Build Your Application Using PhoneGap:Build

By Dhananjay Kumar on Aug 12, 2012
In this walkthrough I will show you the way to build your application in PhoneGap build.

The very first thing to do is to create your application using any of the technology choices like jQuery mobile or KendoUI Mobile. PhoneGap allows you to create hybrid applications.

Navigate to Phonegap Build and register yourself by clicking on the Register button; see:


You can either login using an Adobe account or a Github account; see:


I am loging in using Github. You will be prompted to authorize the application. Click on the Allow button to authorize the application; see:


Check both check boxes and click on Complete My Registration; as in:


After completing registeration you need to upload the application to complie. There are three options for submiting your application; they are:

  1. Create a new Repisotry in GIT for your application.
  2. Pull the application from GIT. In this case you already have your application in the GIT repository.
  3. Upload the application as a zip file.


I am pulling the application from the GIT repository here. After that you need to click on the Create button to create the build for the application. On the next screen you will see that the build for the entire platform is available for download.


A point worth making here is that for a build for iOS you need to register your application and a key for signing it. In this way you can build your application for multiple platforms. I hope you find this article useful. Thanks for reading.
