So far I’ve shown you a lot about Cordova, how to setup a Cordova development environment and use the tools provided by the Cordova team and the mobile platform vendors. Now it’s time, in this chapter and the two that follow, to talk more about how to build Cordova applications. In this chapter, I’ll introduce you to the Cordova APIs and show you how to use them in your applications.

I’m not going to go super deep into each of the APIs and how they work; the Cordova documentation is a lot better than it used to be, but I will show you how to use them in your applications. In the next chapter I’ll show you how to write your own Cordova plugins and wrap it all together in a complete Cordova application in Chapter 14.
