Getting Access to the Run/Debug Configuration: PhoneGap/Cordova Dialog Box
Make sure the PhoneGap/Cordova plugin is enabled. The plugin is not bundled with PhpStorm, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic-Specific Configuration Settings
|PhoneGap/Cordova Executable Path||
In this field,
specify the location of the executable file |
|PhoneGap/Cordova Working Directory||In this field, specify the folder under which the PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic application files to run are stored.|
From this drop-down list,
choose the command to run. The contents of the drop-down list, depend on the actually used framework, namely,
on the executable file specified in the PhoneGap/Cordova Executable Path field. The available options are:
From this drop-down list,
choose the platform for running on which the application is intended.
The available options are:
|Specify Target||Select this check box to appoint an Android physical or virtual device to run the application on and select the required device from the drop-down list. The list shows all the virtual and physical devices that are currently configured on our machine. See http://docs.phonegap.com/en/edge/guide_platforms_android_index.md.html#Android%20Platform%20Guide for details.|
|Name||In this text box, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration. This field does not appear for the default run/debug configurations.|
|Defaults||This node in the left-hand pane of the dialog box contains the default run/debug configuration settings. Select the desired configuration to change its default settings in the right-hand pane. The defaults are applied to all newly created run/debug configurations.|
Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
|Single instance only||If this check box is selected, this run/debug configuration cannot be launched more than once.
Every time a new run/debug configuration is launched, PhpStorm checks the presence of the other instances of the same run/debug configuration, and displays a confirmation dialog box. If you click OK in the confirmation dialog box, the first instance of the runner will be stopped, and the next one will take its place.
This makes sense when the usage of certain resources can cause conflicts, or when launching two run/debug configurations of the same type consumes too much of the CPU and memory resources.
If this check box is not selected, it is possible to launch as many instances of the runner as required. So doing, each runner will start in its own tab of the Run tool window.
|Before launch||Specify which tasks must be performed before applying the run/debug configuration.
The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
