Creating Windows Universal App using a Responsive Website

1 comment

In Windows10 Universal App, you can create your app using JavaScript & HTML. But, assume a case when you have already a web application/ website which is responsive and you want to load it as an Universal App. Here is what i am explaining, how to create such app. Its very simple and straight forward. Follow these steps --

Step - 1: Create a Windows Universal App in JavaScript using Visual Studio
Step - 2: Delete these files/folders - css, js, WinJS, default.html
Step - 3: Edit Manifest file appropriately by replacing your website URL (Line 32- 36) as --

StartPage="http://www.bipul.in">

    <uap:ApplicationContentUriRules>
        <uap:Rule Match="http://www.bipul.in" Type="include" WindowsRuntimeAccess="all"/>
    </uap:ApplicationContentUriRules>
Step - 4: Replace appropriate images for App with the same size and same name in image folder.
Step - 4: Save, Build, Deploy and Test.

For reference, I have published demo code to GIT-Hub.
