Build Tab

Export to PhoneGap* Build and Cordova* CLI  

In the past, if you wanted to build your Intel XDK project using PhoneGap Build or Cordova CLI you had to create a Cordova config.xml file by hand and prepare your source folders for use by those tools. The Intel XDK now includes the ability to generate a Cordova Build Package that you can submit directly to PhoneGap Build, or quickly turn into a buildable Cordova CLI project.

This feature requires version 3900 or later of the Intel XDK. We highly recommend that you update to version 3987 of the Intel XDK to use this feature, because it provides the best compatibility with Adobe PhoneGap Build and Cordova CLI. If you are using version 3983 of the Intel XDK you must upgrade to 3983, due to an error in the exported config.xml file, which will cause some of your build settings to be ignored when using version 3983.
