Phonegap Cross-platform Mobile development

PhoneGap is a mobile development framework produced by Nitobi, purchased by Adobe Systems.[3][4] It enables software programmers to build applications for mobile devices using JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3, instead of device-specific languages such as Objective-C.[5] The resulting applications are hybrid, meaning that they are neither truly native (because all layout rendering is done via web views instead of the platform’s native UI framework) nor purely web-based (because they are not just web apps, but are packaged as apps for distribution and have access to native device APIs). From 1.9 version onward it is even possible to freely mix native and hybrid code snippets. The software underlying PhoneGap is Apache Cordova.[6] The software was previously called just “PhoneGap”, then “Apache Callback”.[7][8] Apache Cordova is open source software.

Implementation of conditions on Drupal AND OR queries

A simple query on Drupal looks like:

$query = db_select('users', 'u', $options);

So, a full query is:

//The query using MySQL
$result = db_query("SELECT uid, name, status, created, access FROM {users} u WHERE uid <--> 0 LIMIT 50 OFFSET 0");

//Using Drupal Queries
// Create an object of type SelectQuery
$query = db_select('users', 'u');

// Add extra detail to this query object: a condition, fields and a range
$query->condition('u.uid', 0, '<>');
$query->fields('u', array('uid', 'name', 'status', 'created', 'access'));
$query->range(0, 50);


To include AND conditions:

AND conditions:

$query->join('flag_content','fc' , 'u.uid = fc.content_id');
$query->condition('fc.fid', '5' , '=');
$query->condition('fc.uid', $uid , '=');

OR conditions:


$query->join('flag_content','fc' , 'u.uid = fc.content_id');

$db_or = db_or();
$db_or->condition('fc.fid', '5' , '=');
$db_or->condition('fc.uid', $uid , '=');

$result = $query->execute()->fetchAll();

Save time using Drush on Drupal

Drush is a command line shell and scripting interface for Drupal, a veritable Swiss Army knife designed to make life easier for those of us who spend some of our working hours hacking away at the command prompt.
