Cordova implementation for Tizen

Cordova implementation for Tizen is a JavaScript Wrapper library allowing to build and run Cordova based projects on Tizen. Cordova based applications are, at the core, an application written with web technology: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Apache Cordova is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator project. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.


Directory Structure

    /samples ..... Ready-to-run Tizen Eclipse IDE sample projects
    /templates ... Cordova Tizen SDK projects templates for Tizen Eclipse IDE
    /www ......... Barebones project assets

Import a Cordova Tizen project sample into Tizen Eclipse IDE

  1. File -> Import
  2. Select Import Source: Widget -> Projects and Widget file -> Next
  3. Import Widget -> Select root directory: Point to the one of the sample projects (e.g: /cordova-basic) -> Finish
  4. The project should be available now in the Tizen Eclipse IDE Project Explorer
  5. You can now go to the [Build and Deploy a project] section of this document

Install Cordova Tizen project templates into Tizen Eclipse IDE

  1. Copy the entire /templates directory content into you Tizen Eclipse IDE web templates directory (e.g: /home/my_username/tizen-sdk/IDE/Templates/web)
  2. You can now create Cordova Tizen project by using Tizen Eclipse IDE project templates

Create a project with the Tizen Eclipse IDE Cordova Tizen project templates

  1. File -> New -> Tizen Web Project.
  2. Select: User Template.
  3. Select: User defined.
  4. Select one of the Cordova templates, fill the Project Name, then -> Finish.
  5. The project should be available now in the Tizen Eclipse IDE Project Explorer
  6. You can now go to the [Build and Deploy a project] section of this document

Build and Deploy a project

  1. Select and Right click the project -> Select Build project, this will generate your project widget package (.wgt)
  2. Select and Right click the project -> Run As -> Here you can choose:
  • Tizen Web Simulator application
  • Tizen Web application (this will deploy you application to a pre-launched Tizen emulator or a Tizen connected device)

Barebones project assets

The www folder contains the Cordova specific assets that must be available in a Tizen Web project to make it ‘Cordova enabled’. If you have an existing Tizen Web application project, copy/merge these files into its root directory.

    config.xml .............. Tizen configuration file
    cordova-x.y.z.js ........ Tizen Cordova JavaScript API implementation library
        beep.wav ............ Needed for Cordova Notification API implementation

Add the following lines into the <head> section of your index.html project file:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/cordova.x.y.z.js"></script>

config.xml is a sample that you are free to alter or merge with an existing Tizen configuration file. It contains the <feature> elements required by the Cordova API.

that could become the source for the apache incubator-cordova-tizen that is until now empty


- cordova icon, for tizen we are not quite sure about the size to use...now it is a 64*64 png
- inedx html, a starter html file 
- tizen.css, for notifications UI
- sounds/ beep.wav ,, a file that should be used by notifications to play a "beep"

js/ where to put generated files from the cordova jake

lib/ cordova.js, generated by make file

tizen SDK Samples/


a tizen SDK eclipse project (to be imported using Eclipse import wizard)

taken from after 2.0.0 tag

the cordova Legacy App slightly adapte to tizen : notifications/index.html is loading the tizen.css file for notifications (waiting to generate this from the source code)

config.xml that is granting all tizen related features as mùmost of them are required by the Codova JavaScript lib

there will be more sample soon :
(actually tizen sample ported to phone gap when is makes sense, first should be contacts samples)
