Apache Cordova Development Now Available On Visual Studio Code


Visual Studio’s Tools for Apache Cordova is already a popular development tool among thousands of developers. Microsoft is now bringing this Cordava development to VS Code. Developes can now debug and preview Cordova apps using VS Code and the Cordova Tools extension.

With this extension, you can debug hybrid apps, find Cordova-specific commands in the Command Palette, and use IntelliSense to browse objects, functions, and parameters. You can use it with both “stock” versions of the Apache Cordova framework and downstream frameworks like Ionic, Onsen, PhoneGap and SAP Fiori Mobile Client. Because they all use the same Cordova build systems and core runtime, the TACO extension is adaptable to the JavaScript framework of your choice.

In fact, you can even use Visual Studio Code on a project created with the full Visual Studio IDE. For example, imagine creating a Cordova project using Ionic templates with Visual Studio on a Windows machine, then opening it on an OS X or Linux machine using Visual Studio Code—making some edits—then continuing your work in the Visual Studio IDE. No matter which editor you choose, you get the full benefit of debugging, IntelliSense, and language support.

Install the Cordova Tools extension directly from within the code editor.
