Step by step : Platform –android ,OS-Window;
As my experience ,It is more easy to created Cordova /Phonegap application through Command-Line Interface .
Step 1: Download and install Node.js. Following installation, you should be able to invoke node or npm on your command line.( site: http://nodejs.org/ )
Step 2: Download and install a git client,* ( site : http://git-scm.com/ ) . you need git client in feature for adding plugin.
Step 3: go to your Nodejs installed directory (mostly in C:\Program Files\nodejs at my system)in Command Prompt . C:\ Program Files\nodejs >npm install -g cordova
Step 4: please mention –g this will help to install cordova globally.it take some time to download cordova Libraries .
Step 5: After that create your project : copy and paste
cordova create hello com.example.hello HelloWorld
cordova create: command to create cordova project .
hello :directory of this name will be created at your current location in cmd .so change your directory path to specific place where you want to create your project .
com.example.hello :package name of your project .you can change this.
HelloWorld :Name of your project.
Step 6 : wait for completing process.
Step 7: now you can see hello folder at the destination .
Step 8:now enter to project folder as D:/joshi>cd hello
Step 9 :now add platform as D:/joshi/hello> cordova platform add android
To check add platform use > cordova platforms ls
To remove plateform use > cordova platform rm android
Step 10 : now to build app > cordova build android
Step 11: compile and prepare :
>cordova prepare android
> cordova compile android
Now your project ready with hello world application. And you can add this project to eclipse . (use this : http://android.programmerguru.com/how-to-import-android-project-in-eclipse/ )
