I'm going to use the sample PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile, Backbone.js app called gthockey-phonegap and posted on GitHub.
You must already have the node.js packager, npm, installed. Execute these commands to setup the Cordova project
npm install -g cordova
Start Intellij and let's create the new project via File > New Project. The select Static web > PhoneGap/Cordova App and Next.
In the dialog box, enter gthockey as the project name and enter the directory where the project will be stored (I'll assume ~/gthockey) Set the executable to /usr/bin/cordova and click Finish.
Use the git command to pull the gthockey-phonegap app. This will create a new directory called gthockey-phonegap.
cd ~/gthockey git clone https://github.com/msandt3/gthockey-phonegap.git
Move GTHockey, Build and Run
rm -rf www mv gthockey-phonegap/www . cordova platform build android cordova emulate android
The emulator is very slow, let's enable developer mode on a nearby android device and try running it on the device. Plug the device in and execute the command:
cordova run android
Git is not required for this but I had problems with the Intellij import of a PhoneGap/Cordova project so before we do the import, I'm going to do a backup with Git.
git init git config --global user.name "YOUR NAME" git config --global user.email "YOUR EMAIL" git config --list git add * git commit -m 'initial commit'
Click Run > Edit Configurations and then hit the + key and choose PhoneGap/Cordova. In the dialog box change the Name to gthockey, the executable path to /usr/bin/cordova and the working directory to the gthockey directory. Click Ok to save the configuration.
The default setup runs the emulator, change the command field to run if you want it to run on your attached device (much quicker).
