Welcome to the svyPhonegap wiki! This wiki provides comprehensive documentation for using the svyPhonegap web-service, which is bridge to connect Servoy to Phonegap’s native plugins.

Getting Started

Import the phonegap.servoy solution and add it as a module to your main solution. The svyPhonegap service should be automatically imported with solution. Within the onSolutionOpen event of your main solution initialize the phonegap scope as shown below:

function onSolutionOpen(arg, queryParams) {
//initialize phonegap module
scopes.phonegap.onSolutionOpen(arg,queryParams, onReadyCallback);


function onReadyCallback(){
//device is ready, get information from a plugin

You can also add the phonegap module through source (GIT) then import as an existing project in your workspace.

Working Example

To see a Servoy solution that utilizes this module check out svyMobile.

Building Native Binary (Android/IOS)

Use Servoy's Cloud Control Center. The service will help you fill out the configurations required and generate a native mobile binary.

If you need to generate certificates for the relevant app store(s) read this guide.
