    Due to certain security concerns we can not use the cloud for building mobile apps.

    Is there any possibility of using AppBuilder offline so that all the compilation occurs at the client-side (Windows 7) only?

    Hi Pavan,

    AppBuilder does not provide an option to build projects locally. A local build would require you to download, install and setup many libraries like the Android Developer Tools and the iOS SDK along with Cordova plugins and more. Also, in order to build iOS apps you will need a Mac machine. AppBuilder simplifies this by setting up a cloud build, so you do not need to make these configurations on your machine and lets you build apps for various platforms regardless of the OS you are using.

    If you are concerned about your project being stored in the cloud, then you should use the AppBuilder VS Extension or the AppBuilder CLI as they use the cloud just for the build and do not store your project afterwards.

    Let me know if this works for you.

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