What is Apache Cordova?

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

When using the Cordova APIs, an app can be built without any native code (Java, Objective-C, etc) from the app developer. Instead, web technologies are used, and they are hosted in the app itself locally (generally not on a remote http server).

And because these JavaScript APIs are consistent across multiple device platforms and built on web standards, the app should be portable to other device platforms with minimal to no changes.

I generally like Cordova though it has its disadvantages like testing compared to which I switched later. Flutter definitely wins with its HotReload. To anyone thinking about this 2 frameworks, I would recommend reading this article https://surf.dev/flutter-vs-apache-cordova/, it may be useful to understand pros and cons. Thank you, Apache Cordova, you served me really well, but now it's time to say goodbye :)
