Our development team is proud to announce that applications created with Monaca can now use Cordova 6.5. With the Cordova 6.5 support, many additional features will be available in Monaca, such as Android Nougat, iOS 11, the iOS library management tool “CocoaPods” as well as the Swift-made plugins. In addition, once the Cordova 6.5 support is released, the Cordova version of all newly created projects will be 6.5.

A simple static application has fewer security concerns compared to a dynamic application that requires an internet connection. An example concern, that a developer might have with either a static or dynamic application is how to prevent non-authorized users from copying or reading the source code. This can easily be resolved by encrypting to the application content.
More security concerns appear when an internet connection is established for fetch data. This connection can put a user or application at risk. The biggest concerns, either hybrid or native development, is the data integrity. Did the data come from the originated source? Has the data been tampered with before reaching the app? This commonly known as a man in the middle attack.
Visual Studio Code comes with tons of features like debugging, Git integration, syntax highlighting, IntelliSense and more. It is also highly customizable. On top of that, Microsoft recently announced Cordova Tools for Visual Studio Code. With Cordova Tools extension, you can build, debug and preview Cordova hybrid mobile apps on Visual Studio Code.
With that in mind, in this blog post, we will quickly explain how to create a Monaca hybrid application using Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code with Cordova Tools.
In this article we will take a look at how to create a Cordova hybrid app using Onsen UI and React. We will create a full-fledged weather application that uses Redux to manage the state and Onsen UI to create a beautiful UI.
Hi, this is Hosoi of Monaca team.
This time I will write a short report about Raspberry Pi case I made with LEGO.
Building secure applications is a challenge you might face while developing Monaca applications. Important data, such as payment information or personal files, are potentially dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands. Today, we are introducing 3 ways to ensure the security of your applications’ data.
Kintone by Cybozu lets you quickly and easily build your own customized business applications such as daily reports, minutes, time-card, and surveys. It also lets you create applications using Excel or CSV files to satisfy your own needs.
Kintone provides a lot of features in the web browser but here we focus on developing using Kintone API and Monaca to transform your custom business application into a hybrid mobile application.
I’m very excited by the possibilities Firebase has for mobile apps. Using Onsen UI, AngularJS and Firebase I’ve made a simple app to illustrate how it can be used. Instead of creating my own database, I’ve used the Hacker News API since it already has a lot of data and new items are added frequently so we can try out the live syncing functionality in Firebase.
LokiJS is intended to be used as an in-memory database with the possibility of persisting the data. It is compatible with Node.js (filesystem) and browsers, which means that it can be also used in our hybrid mobile Cordova apps (localStorage and indexedDB).
Ohalog (オハログ) is a new and free Onsen UI application which analyzes and logs your sleep and helps you to find the optimal conditions to rest better. This app was made by the same team that also developed the famous Unlog (ウンログ) app, which already has more than 300.000 users in Japan.
