Mobile App Preparation     

Before we dive in to the actual development, we need to do some preparation work.

1. Installation

First step is to make sure you got the Cordova CLI installed and the necessary SDKs.

$ npm install -g cordova

export ANDROID_HOME="$HOME/Android/Sdk"

2. Add Cordova Quasar Mode

In order to develop/build a Mobile app, we need to add the Cordova mode to our Quasar project. What this does is that it uses Cordova CLI to generate a Cordova project in /src-cordova folder. /src-cordova/www folder will be overwritten each time you build.

$ quasar mode -a cordova

You can now verify if everything is in order. “cd” into /src-cordova and type:

$ cordova requirements

On some newer Debian-based operating systems you might face a very persistent problem when running cordova requiremets. Please see the “Android SDK not found” after installation section for assistance.

3. Start Developing

If you want to jump right in and start developing, you can skip the previous step with “quasar mode” command and issue:

$ quasar dev -m cordova -T [android|ios]

This will add Cordova mode automatically, if it is missing.
