    I have read your article and about using edge animate project and injecting them into div on another page. It came up while I was researching about loading edge animate projects after an ajax request. Would you know how and where I would need to edit my *edgePreload.js to make it work after ajax and not page load.

    Hi Andrew,

    Can you tell me if it is really not possible to create a phonegap app that are larger than 9.5 Mb?
    (or what to do to get above the limit)

    Thanks in advance!

      Currently, you cannot have a project over 10 MB on the PhoneGap Build service. I know there was talk about changing this, but I don’t know where that currently stands. If you are using local dev tools and packaging yourself, you can definitely have a larger size than 10 MB. For example, this PhoneGap app is 1.5 Gigs: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kooky/id547565880?l=cs&ls=1&mt=8

    Andrew, do you know of any progress on a phonegap plugin for Bluetooth LE for the iphone? Apple published a ios sample back in November which works well allowing you to send data between two iphones, but I don’t know IOS and am struggling to write my own plugin using the apple btle sample. If someone who know IOS took a look at it I’m sure it wouldn’t be that hard to convert to work with phonegap. Any suggestions?

  • Paul Davis

    Thanks Andrew. There isn’t an existing bluetooth plugin for IOS or the iphone. Regarding the size of the project what I would really like to do is just strip out the user interface components in the apple Bluetooth Low Energy IOS sample found at: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#samplecode/BTLE_Transfer/Introduction/Intro.html to send data between two iphones. So I would just use the objective-c code to transfer the data and manage the bluetooth framework coordination and HTML5/javascript to do the rest. The net is I’m not very good with objective-c and can’t figure out how to strip out the UI code from the apple sample and since BTLE is hot and has so many potential use cases this functionality would be huge.

    Hi Andrew

    Can you advise a consultant/company that can help improve the perf of my phonegap app ?

    Hi Andrew (my middle name)
    I too started with TRS-80 and Pet Computers :) Dad used a Apple II + (48K!… Rocks)

    I’am re-looking at PhoneGap for myself and my aspiring son (HS). (We have CS5.5)

    Screen Flow in Photoshop
    Note: This app will also be free and open source as a sample/learning resource for PhoneGap, including all of the design assets – I’ll follow up with another post on this later, once the app is available in the app stores.

    I’am looking for the above assets (app adn those cool UI design and flows) . I checked Github.
    Might you send a link if Assets, if have?

    btw – GREAT resource

      Those assets haven’t been shared yet. However, if you want to just have some nice looking UI elements for your PhoneGap app, try checking out http://topcoat.io/

    Hello Andrew,

    May I ask you a question concerning this code:


    Will I be able to built someting on this code, and then distribute the result under any CC-License or even the WTFPL?

    Of course, If you like I will include your name in the Sourcecode.

    Kind regards,

  • Gruff McGruff

    Hello Andrew, I watched your ATL Meetup presentation on phone gap and really liked it. I am a Javascript junkie that has created an open-source, requireJS-inspired development tool called structreJS (www.structurejs.wordpress.com). For phonegap-style and single-page apps it really helps to make controller modularization easy. I also host a remote module repository where developers can share their modules and others can use them by simply adding them to their project’s manifest. If you get a chance please check out my project’s website or give it a spin (https://github.com/ShamariFeaster/structureJS)
