Before you start, make sure the PhoneGap/Cordova repository plugin is installed as described in Managing plugins.
PhoneGap/Cordova Executable Path
In this field, specify the location of the executable file phonegap.cmd, cordova.cmd, or ionic.cml (see Installing PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic).
This read-only field shows the installed PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic version that PhpStorm detects automatically.
PhoneGap/Cordova Working Directory
In this field, specify the folder under which the PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic application files to run are stored.
Automatically exclude 'platforms' directory on open project
Select this checkbox to have the platforms directory marked as excluded automatically when you open the project. As a result, PhpStorm ignores it during indexing, parsing, and code completion.
In this area, configure a list of plugins to use in your development by installing required packages. The list shows all the PhoneGap/Cordova/Ionic plugins that are currently installed on your computer, both at the global and at the project level.
