Getting Started

  • copy the file templates/CordovaStarter-x.x.x.zip to the folder : \My Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Templates\ProjectTemplates\
  • if you have just installed VisualStudio, you should launch it once to create this folder
  • if you prefer, you may add the project instead to the “Silverlight for Windows Phone” subfolder of “Visual C#”. This is up to you, and only affects where the project template is shown when creating a new project. Also, You may need to create this folder.
  • Launch Visual Studio 2012 and select to create a new project
  • CordovaStarter should be listed as an option, give your new project a name
  • Note: The description will let you know the version of Cordova you are targetting, if you have multiple templates.
  • If you do not see it, you may have to select the top level ‘Visual C#’ to see it
  • Build and Run it!
