config.xml is a configuration file that allows you to control many aspects of your Cordova app. In this video, Tom Duffy discusses using config.xml and where and how you can edit it to suit your needs.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look at the config.xml file.…As you can see, config.xml is a configuration file…that allows you to control many aspects of your Cordoba app.…Because it's written in XML, it is self-defining…and readable by humans.…Notice that the ID attribute in the top level widget…mirrors the ID that you gave your app at creation time.…Also notice that the version is set to 1.0.0.…All of the data that's stored in config.xml…is modifiable by you.…
