2.0 release for PhoneGap/Cordova


#1

Is there a planned upgrade for the PhoneGap/Cordova Couchbase Lite plugin for the new 2.0 build?


#2

PhoneGap/Cordova will not be supported in CBM 2.0. Stay tuned for updates in future releases (CC @ssmotra)

Hi,

Ac couple of questions -

  • Which version of Phonegap are you using?
  • Can you please share your rationale for using Phonegap? Did you consider another hybrid development technology?
  • Are you evaluating/planning to move native app development?

Thanks,
Sachin

Hi,

This is an old thread, but I had this exact question.

Is it true that the CBL Cordova plugin will not be maintained anymore? The plugin page https://github.com/couchbaselabs/Couchbase-Lite-PhoneGap-Plugin does not mention this.

The second most recent issue in GitHub is that the CBL plugin can not be used with the latest Cordova Android platform. If the Cordova plugin will not be maintained anymore, does it mean e.g. this issue https://github.com/couchbaselabs/Couchbase-Lite-PhoneGap-Plugin/issues/104 will never be fixed?

What does Stay tuned for updates in future releases mean?

Which version of Phonegap are you using?
We are not using PhoneGap, just Cordova. Not the latest version, but it is just because we haven’t had time to upgrade to latest versions of Cordova+platforms+etc.

Can you please share your rationale for using Phonegap? Did you consider another hybrid development technology?
We have not had the resources for building multiple native applications. We are currently not using the synchronization/etc features with CBL, but we need a reliable cross-platform DB.

Are you evaluating/planning to move native app development?
Not currently.

The JavaScript API used in PhoneGap/Cordova was based on a REST API in Couchbase Lite. We have not reimplemented this API in 2.0, as it’s quite complex and we don’t think it’s the best way to offer a JavaScript language binding.
