Eclipse Thym 2.0.0
Thym provides tools for Apache Cordova based Hybrid Mobile Application development. In this release, Thym has switched to use Cordova CLI directly to build and and plugin management in this release. This allows us to generate much more accurate build and plugin management and also allows the project to concentrate on the added value
This release also introduces support for Windows Cordova platform in addition to iOS, Android and WP8 platforms supported on earlier releases.
The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".
Thym has switched to provide functionality using command line tools from Apache Cordova project. This allows Thym to be able to support the latest Cordova platform releases with ease, allowing the project to concentrate on the added value.
This release supports the following platforms.
- iOS (XCode)
- Windows Phone
There are no known security issues.
GitHub is used for the daily development of Thym as well as the external contributions. Thym uses HIPP for builds.
Bugzilla is used for planning and bug tracking
Thym does not yet have localization/externalization.
To make it more convenient a contribution guide exists in both wiki and Github.
User documentation is limited. However, Cordova project is well documented, Thym relies on Cordova documentation for the concepts and utilizes screencasts to explain how they work while developing with Thym.
Thym aims to conform with Eclipse UI guidelines. We continously gather feedback and improve usability of our components. We have made several changes on the following components as a result
- Config.xml editor
- New Cordova project wizard
Export platform project wizard has been discontinued and replaced with an accesible generated platfom project on the project tree.
The features of Thym closely follow the features of Apache Cordova project.
