Modern reengineering of my Android app
I’d like to modernize my Android App on Google Play into a new one, built using Monaca tools. My idea is to integrate Monaca and the free Visual Studio Community edition.
I am new at Monaca development and I have a few questions.
Can I sell the new app on Google Play or have I to distribute it free?
@giuliohome Welcome to the Onsen Community. To answer in short:
- Absolutely - no restrictions on what you do with your app.
- Pretty much. If you needed some specific functionality that JS does not provide but your Java code does, then you would need to write a plugin. See the document for more information: http://docs.phonegap.com/en/2.0.0/guide_plugin-development_android_index.md.html#Developing a Plugin on Android
On a side note, I see you are going for Visual Studio. This is a great platform, but I would also highly recommend the free Monaca Cloud IDE to get started. Awesome platform with no configuration concerns as well as iOS builds! What more could you ask for?!
@munsterlander Thank you very much for your prompt and accurate reply, for the very interesting doc reference to the plugin development (exactly what I was looking for) and your final suggestion about the IDE that I’ll try to follow.
