Intel® XDK

PhoneGap Build is making some big changes


since i can't use intel xdk to build my app ,i started to use phonegap builder and it worked fine for me and i'm used to it now .

But i saw that they are making a major update in 1 October to their system ,and my question is will that affect us (the people building and extracting our app packages from intel xdk ) ?


and we will still be able to build our apps like before or Mr Paul will make another tutorial for us then ?

[RETIRED] Build Tab (Online Build Targets)

IMPORTANT: As of July 10, 2017, the Intel XDK cloud-based build servers have been retired. The build system is no longer be available for use with any version of the Intel XDK. Your mobile app projects will still be recognized as Intel XDK mobile app projects and will continue to work within the Simulate tab. Additionally, the Test tab can still be used to push your app to App Preview for on-device testing.

Login Error "Access Denied"

If you see a login error similar to the following:

You are probably using a version of the Intel XDK that needs to be updated. Versions of the XDK prior to and including 3400 are not able to log into the Intel XDK backend services. This is due to changes that were made to maintain a higher level of security for your accounts.

[RETIRED] App Designer (UI layout tool)

IMPORTANT: the Intel XDK App Designer component (aka the UI layout tool) has been retired. It was retired with the 3972 release (May, 2017). Existing App Designer projects will continue to work, but you will not be able to create new App Designer projects.

No bug fixes will be implemented for App Designer nor for any of the UI frameworks that were supported by App Designer.


I have my css file well linked to my html file and all declarations are working except the hover pseudo selector. Don't know where I have gone wrong or there is a bug in my system.
