In this chapter, I’ve shown you what makes an application a Cordova application, plus I’ve shown you the sample application that the Cordova CLI creates for you. You now have the building blocks necessary to start building your own Cordova applications.
In the next chapters, I’ll show you how to install Apache Cordova and use the Cordova CLI to create and manage your Cordova projects.
Notice that in this chapter, I didn’t do anything to make my applications visually appealing. You can use CSS to do this, which is not something I really want to cover in a Cordova book. In Chapter 17 I’ll show you how to use third-party frameworks, some of them specifically designed for hybrid applications, to add pizzazz to your Cordova web applications.
