Development Environment

Eden Mobile is built on the Apache Cordova platform (sometimes known as Adobe PhoneGap).

  1. Cordova runs on NodeJS. If your OS distribution does not provide a NodeJS bundle, you can get one from here:
  1. Use the NodeJS package manager npm to install Cordova:
npm install -g cordova

  1. If you want to build and test EdenMobile, you also need an SDK for the target platform, e.g.:
  • Android SDK
    • Ensure the SDK tools are in your PATH, e.g. for Windows 10:
      • %USERPROFILE%\AppData\local\android\sdk\platform-tools
      • %USERPROFILE%\AppData\local\android\sdk\tools
  1. You can fork/clone EdenMobile from here:
  1. Run the application
  • to install image on emulator you need to install the apk: adb install platforms\android\build\outputs\apk\android-debug.apk


EdenMobile uses the AngularJS JavaScript MVC framework.

A good introduction into AngularJS can be found here:

NB We use Angular 1.x as Angular 2.x use Typescript for all examples still...TS cannot be debugged live on the device (required for offline DB support) & transpiling the TS examples produces very bloated code.


The EdenMobile user interface is built with the CSS and JavaScript components provided by the Ionic framework.

Documentation of these components can be found here:

Note: EdenMobile does not use the Ionic CLI for development and builds, but the Cordova CLI.
