Linux News Today: Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2 Brings the Apache Cordova Project to Ubuntu Linux

David Barth has had the great pleasure of announcing a few days ago the release of the Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2 software for all supported Ubuntu Linux operating systems.

Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2 is quite a small release that enables the click framework by default on the Ubuntu SDK software for the Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) series of operating systems, which is used by the Ubuntu Touch team.

Additionally, the new Cordova Ubuntu release manages to update the check_reqs script to only verify the node deps instead of the Ubuntu build dependencies, which are automatically checked during the build process.

“I am happy to announce that `Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2` has now been officially released,” said David Barth in the release announcement published on the Ubuntu Touch mailing list. “This is a patch release, with several usability improvements and an update of the default framework to ubuntu-sdk-15.04.”

Here’s how to update to Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2

Those of you who want to upgrade their Cordova Ubuntu installation on supported Ubuntu Linux operating systems, can do it right now by running the following set of commands in a terminal emulator app.

npm install -g cordova
cd my_project
cordova platform update ubuntu@4.3.2

To add Cordova Ubuntu 4.3.2 explicitly in your installation, you’ll need to run the command below, but if you get stuck, you’ll have to visit the project’s website, which provides you all the details you need to know to get started running Apache Cordova on your Ubuntu Linux operating system.

For those of you who are not in the loop, the Apache Cordova project has been created to become a collection of powerful and cross-platform JavaScript (JS) APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that can be used for building mobile applications for all platforms.
