A few months ago, I discovered a really cool plugin for chrome. It’s Ripple, an open source project hosted by Apache to emulate mobile devices into you browser (Chrome actually …). But I’ve never really had the time (or the project) to test it.
So here it is !
First, you have to install the chrome plugin.
Now, create a new phonegap project :
Create your application (or just test with the default Phonegap app) :
Go to your working directory and start the server :
Go to http://emulate.phonegap.com?url=localhost:2000&platform=phonegap and enable the plugin if it isn’t.
It can really save you time, because deploy to a real device is much longer, and more difficult to debug. So if you use the chrome developer tools… you will not let go this plugin! But it sure doesn’t replace a real device for testing ;)
