NEWS!!!! Intel XDK cloud build system will be deprecated

At the end of june. Intel XDK cloud build system will be deprecated. This means we will not be able to create apps directly on Intel XDK.
Alternatively. They added a feature which is shown here … ordova-cli

This method requires another program, Phonegap or Cordova CLI
Tutorial is also included on the link but as a non programmer, i cant understand the process. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :smiley: :slight_smile: :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:
Please help us. :cry:

I can’t give you a detailed guide here, but maybe I can help understand the process better.

Intel XDK going to generate the Cordova Build package configured to be ready to use with both PhoneGap and Cordova CLI.

In case of PhoneGap, the only thing you need to do is upload the ZIP file generated by Intel XDK to PhoneGap build service:
it is just as easy as it was Intel XDK except you are using a 3rd party build service now…
But PhoneGap is not completely free. They offer a free plan but it is limited if you want to unlock limitations or need access to advanced features, you need to pay a monthly fee:

You can also use to build your apps using the HTML5 export from GDevelop:

Cordova CLI is a free command line tool and can be used to build applications locally on your computer. In order to use it, you need to install Node.js it gives you the tools to install Cordova CLI and you also going to need some platform specific tools for example if you want to build for Android you need to install Android SDK and JDK too and if you want to target Windows, you need to install Visual Studio and VS Tools for web and mobile development…

Once you have everything installed and set and you have the ZIP file from Intel XDK, the only thing you need to do is unzip the package then using the command line, you need to navigate to the directory of the project, it is normally done using the command cd project_directory_name Of course you may need to include the full path for example like cd C:\Users\myname\Desktop\Projects\Cordova\project_directory_name

Once you done that, you need to add target platforms, for example if you want to target android just enter: cordova platform add android and then just build using the commands:

cordova prepare cordova build
