As many of you know, Adobe has dropped support for PhoneGap Build, and those of us with apps were left to scramble to convert over to Cordova CLI, or a service like Monaca.
After several days struggling with the Cordova CLI, CocoaPads, and IOS Provisioning manually, I decided to take a look at Monaca.
To my pleasant surprise, I was able to zip up my PGB app and import it to the Monaca online IDE. After going through the setup and build, it actually installed and ran on my device.
However, I use a LOT of plugins. To get them to work, I apparently need to be on a paid plan.
My company has only one app, but we brand it for literally hundreds of our clients. So, technically, we will need a plan that supports hundreds of projects, or a mechanism to rebuild the same project using different resources (icons, screens), bundle name, and provisioning info for IOS.
So finally - the questions:
- Has anyone done something similar? Can I provision multiple brands with one project?
- If not, do I get this right: $11,000/yr for the paid plan?
