Overview About Phonegap?

What is Phonegap?

PhoneGap is a free and open source framework that allows you to create mobile apps using standardized web APIs for the platforms you care about.

PhoneGap is an application framework that enables you to build natively installed applications using HTML and JavaScript.

The easiest way to think of PhoneGap is a web view container that is 100% width and 100% height, with a JavaScript programming interface that allows you to access underlying operating system features.

You build your user interface using traditional web development skills (HTML, CSS, & JavaScript), and use the PhoneGap container to deploy to different application ecosystems and devices.

When packaged for deployment, the PhoneGap application is a binary distributable file that can be distributed by the “normal” application marketplaces (iTunes, Google App Market, Amazon Market, etc…).

PhoneGap can be used to build applications that target multiple platforms, including Apple iOS, Google Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, HP WebOS, Symbian, and Bada.

Since the UI rendering engine is the mobile device’s web browser, PhoneGap applications can literally look like anything.

You can use standard HTML & CSS to make it look like a normal web page, you can use a UI framework like jQuery UI, Kendo UI, Sencha, Twitter Bootstrap, or Skeleton (or any other HTML/CSS/JS user interface framework). You can also use CSS styles/themes to make your web content look like native apps, such as iUI to mimic iOS or Android, or bbUI to mimic BlackBerry.

PhoneGap applications can have static UIs based on normal HTML, or can have dynamic & interactive experiences developed using JavaScript.

It depends upon the specific application, user experience design, target audience, and use cases to dictate how a PhoneGap application will appear.

What is Mustache.js?

Mustache is an open source logic-less template system developed for languages such as JavaScript, Ruby, Python, PHP, and Java.

Mustache provides templates and views as the basis for creating dynamic templates.

The main principles were:

logic-less: no explicit control flow statements, all control driven by data.
strong "separating logic from presentation": it is impossible to embed application logic in the Mustache templates.

Why mustache.js?
Mustache is a library that allows you to read in JSON formatted data and display it using templates you design with JavaScript. There are lots of similar libraries, such as underscore.js, handlebars.js, and dust.js. So why did I choose mustache?

I picked mustache because I wanted something simple. Some of the other libraries provide more functionality, but I didn’t need complexity. I needed to spend time building the site, not learning something new. And that’s the great thing about mustache.js—if you know JSON and a bit of JavaScript, it’s a cinch to implement.

Mustache is used mainly for mobile and web applications.

What is Backbone.js?

Backbone.js is a JavaScript library with a restful JSON interface and is based on the model–view–presenter (MVP) application design paradigm.

Backbone.js gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface.

Backbone.js is a JavaScript library that runs in the browser. We use it to structure client-side applications – those that run in a web browser.

With Backbone, you represent your data as Models, which can be created, validated, destroyed, and saved to the server. Whenever a UI action causes an attribute of a model to change, the model triggers a "change" event; all the Views that display the model's state can be notified of the change, so that they are able to respond accordingly, re-rendering themselves with the new information.

Backbone.js is a lightweight JavaScript library that adds structure to your client-side code. It makes it easy to manage and decouple concerns in your application, leaving you with code that is more maintainable in the long term.

Developers commonly use libraries like Backbone.js to create single-page applications (SPAs). SPAs are web applications that load into the browser and then react to data changes on the client side without requiring complete page refreshes from the server.

When Do I Need A JavaScript MVC Framework?
When building a single-page application using JavaScript, whether it involves a complex user interface or is simply trying to reduce the number of HTTP requests required for new Views, you will likely find yourself inventing many of the pieces that make up an MV* framework.

Why Consider Backbone.js?
Backbone provides a minimal set of data-structuring (Models, Collections) and user interface (Views, URLs) primitives that are helpful when building dynamic applications using JavaScript. It’s not opinionated, meaning you have the freedom and flexibility to build the best experience for your web application how you see fit. You can either use the prescribed architecture it offers out of the box or extend it to meet your requirements.

What is Supersonic ?

Supersonic is a robust user interface framework (UI) for developing hybrid mobile applications. The framework integrates with any REST API (Application Programming Interface) and allows data interaction/modification in the backend. With Supersonic, one can design API-connected mobile applications for iOS and Android.

Supersonic is a framework with an elegant balance of simplicity and power. By using the best of what AngularJS, web components and HTML5 have to offer, Supersonic has crafted a level of sophistication that is years ahead of the competition.

Supersonic UI is a game-changer. It's an Ionic fork that changes the way you think about hybrid app performance. Supersonic's declarative UI style makes building complex mobile apps a breeze. In the background, the seamless interplay of native UI and HTML5 bakes an end-result that is 100% indistinguishable from any native app. 

Supersonic bridges the gap by using native UI elements when HTML and CSS just don't cut it. No more position: fixed; header bars, slow tabs or choppy animations. Page transitions, modals, navigation bars, tab bars, drawers – and a whole lot more – are fully native. That means unparalleled performance and no App Store rejections.

What is Jeet?

Jeet is a grid system built on top of Sass and Stylus. It consists of powerful mixins and functions you can use to create fast responsive layouts.

Unlike many other grids, Jeet provides a more flexible approach for producing layouts. Here are its main advantages:

It doesn’t add any additional markup.
It isn’t limited to a specific column size (e.g. 12-column grid).
You can use fractions (e.g. 1/4), decimals (e.g. 0.75), or even a combination of them (e.g. 1.5/4) for generating the desired layout.
The grid is designed to work in all major browsers including IE9+. If you want to target previous versions of IE, take a look at the Boy boilerplate.

The grid comes in two flavors, one for Sass(SCSS) and another for Stylus. Depending on the preprocessor you want to use, there’s a different installation method.

Npm Sass & Stylus

npm install -D node-sass jeet
npm install -D stylus jeet
