Cordova

TUTORIALS

Apache Cordova is an open source framework that enables web developers to use their HTML, CSS, and JavaScript content to create a native application for multiple mobile platforms.

Cordova takes your web application and renders it within a native WebView. Since the beginning of Ionic, Cordova has been an integral part of the project. However, around 2018, the Ionic Team released Capacitor. (Capacitor vs Cordova).

Capacitor is a cross-platform native runtime for building web apps. It allows you to create cross-platform iOS, Android, and PWAs with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Learn why the Ionic team created this tool and what its benefits are.

The following ionic tutorials are related to Cordova topics. However, if you plan to start a new Ionic project, we strongly recommend using Capacitor, the developer experience is so much better.
