Yes that is possible. Monaca CLI is a wrapper around Cordova CLI, so Cordova CLI commands should work (replacing cordova with monaca e.g. monaca build instead of cordova build). Please see the Cordova CLI for details of how to create a Cordova app. If you want to build remotely on Monaca servers run monaca remote build. Also please see here for full documentation: http://docs.monaca.io/ If you have any further questions please let us know, or alternatively contact Monaca Support Team through the Monaca website, which may be faster than the forum.
