    Is there a way to see what version of the Cordova compiler was used to build a project in AppBuilder? And XCode and any libraries it uses? I mean more detailed information that just "Cordova 3.5".

    We're using the desktop version of AppBuilder. 

    Also, Cordova sometimes releases minor updates to address bugs, and it'd be good to see what version of everything your build servers are on. We've been having some technical issues with plugins and I really need to know what exact version of all the compilers and XCode libraries are being used. Or if it's possible that your build servers don't all have the same version.

    Hello Zinc,

    The Cordva version used for building AppBuilder applications on the server is exactly the same as the one pointed in the Cordova Version field in the project's properties. As you have noticed, for Cordova 3.5 it is also said (Android 3.5.1). This means that for iOS and WP8 we use the official Cordova 3.5 version framework and for Android, we use Cordova 3.5.1 instead of 3.5 (due to important security fixes, introduced there). However, if you want the check the sources of the Cordova framework, used on our build machines, you can check this github repositories (cordova-ios, cordova-android and cordova-wp8). The different branches represent the bits, deployed with your application depending on the selected in the project's properties Cordova Version.

    Further, currently we are using XCode 5 for building iOS applications. However, this will change in the future as we have already planned the migration to XCode 6.

    As for other libraries and tools, I am afraid I cannot provide this information. Instead, I would suggest you to point the exact issues you are experiencing with plugins and provide steps in order to reproduce them on our side. Having this information, we might be able to help or find a workarounds for you.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
