    The Quirky Land of Cordova

    There are a number of quirky tasks to complete when you get ready to publish an app in either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. They are not the type of thing I, as a developer, usually think about when starting a project. As the Portland Women’s History Trail gets nearer to “submission ready,” I’ve steadily chopped away at that list, but the first major task was making a fundamentally HTML/CSS/JavaScript application work when bundled and offline took a bit of research and ultimately, doing things the “right way.”
