Drupal - Build a Mobile App to Geo Locate Node Content

In this tutorial we will explore how to build a mobile application for Android (iOS, iPhone, iPad) using PhoneGap and jQueryMobile that can be used to geo locate node content from a Drupal website. The mobile application will lookup the user's current location, then ask Drupal for a list of content closest to that user's location.

The feedback from the tutorial below, along with the feedback from presenting this tutorial at DrupalCamp Michigan and the University of Michigan Drupal Developers meeting, inspired me to build DrupalGap.

UPDATE: Please read this article for a much more detailed explanation on how to get PhoneGap up and running to communicate with Drupal Services.

Browse an Android Emulator SQLite Database in Eclipse

UPDATE - It appears the Questoid SQLite Browser is no longer available from the maker's website, sorry! Perhaps this link will be of use: http://www.java2s.com/Code/Jar/c/Downloadcomquestoidsqlitebrowser120jar.htm

Create an Android Emulator SD Card and Write Data To It

Create the SD Card...

Let's create a 64MB sd card for our Android emulator, shall we?


From a terminal...

# cd ~/android-sdk-linux/tools
# ./mksdcard 64M ~/Desktop/sdcard.iso

Windows XP

From a DOS prompt...

cd C:\Program Files\android-sdk-windows\tools
mksdcard 64M c:\documents and settings\tyler\desktop\sdcard.iso

Now you can use the 'Eclipse Android SDK and AVD Manager' to create a new android virtual device that can use the path to the sd card you created.
