Subject [Cordova Wiki] Update of "Draft Charter" by brianleroux
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2012 11:12:50 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cordova Wiki" for change notification.

The "Draft Charter" page has been changed by brianleroux:

  The Apache Cordova project is responsible for creating and maintaining a suite of libraries
and tools for building mobile applications using an embedded webview for presentation and
pluggable interface to the underlying operating system.
+ Cordova provides a simple foreign function interface that enables JavaScript to call native
code, and vice versa. In addition to the bridge Cordova provides a core set of Device APIs
that are common across supported platforms. The APIs available to the webview adhere, as much
as possible, to web standards to enable code portability to web browsers.
+ Apache Cordova primary goal is to cease to exist. We are providing a reference implementation
for future web browsers, and a transition path protecting app developers from vendor lock-in
to singular operating systems. 
+ Our secondary goal is to the web as a first class development platform. The web sandbox
restrictions do not allow system level capabilities making it unsuited for many types of applications.
Cordova also provides tooling for common workflows, making app development faster, and generally
a more pleasant experience.
