"This tutorial describes how you can set up an development environment for building Android apps on a Debian Squeeze desktop using Eclipse, the Android SDK, and PhoneGap. I will describe how to build Android apps from the command line with PhoneGap and from the GUI with Eclipse and PhoneGap and how to test them in an Android emulator and on a real Android device. PhoneGap allows you to develop your Android applications using web technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (e.g. with JavaScript libraries such as jQuery/jQTouch), and it will turn these web apps into native Android apps (in fact, PhoneGap supports multiple platforms such as Android, iPhone, Palm, Windows Mobile, Symbian, so you can use the same sources to create apps for multiple platforms).

"I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

"1 Preliminary Note

"I will not explain how to develop an Android app using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You can find lots of tutorials about this on the Internet, e.g. this one:

"Tutorial: A simple Twitter client with JQTouch

"In fact, I'm using a slightly modified version of the Twitter client described in the link to build a Twitter app in this tutorial."
