hybrid app for communities

Hi guys,

I have no idea wheter this is possible or not.

I would like to create hybrid app for salesforce communities (community is already build and live). instead of purchasing Mobile publisher we would like to develop this.

i am a salesforce developer and have no idea about mobile apps development.
From trailhead i have downloaded components to start with. can someone please guide me how to start with this. is this doable by sf developer or not?

Thanks

Hi Rajni,

Hybrid apps combine the ease of HTML5 Web app development with the power and features of the native platform. They run within a Salesforce mobile container—a native layer that translates the app into device-specific code—and define their functionality in HTML5 and JavaScript files.  Salesforce Mobile SDK provides hybrid samples that demonstrate how to use Mobile SDK features in JavaScript.

You can try developing a sample mobile app initially using trailhead etc.,  once you have better idea then you can go ahead with your requirement.

Review below links which gives you more information on how to develop app.
