Getting Started with PhoneGap on Linux without Eclipse Eclipse is a great editor and all, but I'm a much bigger fan of jEdit which I've been using since forever (at least 10 years). So, when wanting to do Android development and especially when using PhoneGap most of the existing documentation focuses on Eclipse. This shows a full manual process, from installing the Android SDK and PhoneGap, creating the initial project and building the sample provided by PhoneGap. The target system is Linux (Gentoo) and we'll mostly be working in the home directory of a non-privileged user. Install the Android SDK At this time of this writing it was version: android-sdk_r15-linux.tgz. Might take some time to complete all the downloads during update sdk. wget http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r15-linux.tgz tar -zxf android-sdk_r15-linux.tgz rm android-sdk_r15-linux.tgz cd android-sdk-linux tools/android update sdk --no-ui echo "PATH=\"\${PATH}:~/android-sdk-linux/tools\"" >> ~/.bashrc Install PhoneGap Download the latest, at this time PhoneGap 1.2.0. wget https://github.com/callback/phonegap/zipball/1.2.0 unzip cd phonegap-1.2.0 Building the Sample cd ~/phonegap-1.2.0/Android/Sample android update project --path $(pwd) ant debug Running the Sample ~/android-sdk-linux/tools/android Using this UI create a AVD Tools -> Manage AVDs ~/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb devices Now install to the running emulator ~/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools/adb -e install -r bin/PhoneGapExample-debug.apk See Also
