I am using DevExtreme Mobile tools to embed a SPA application into the mobile application created using PhoneGap. I wish to show users all accounts configured on a device, but standard PhoneGap API does not provide an appropriate feature. I have found a third-party plug-in, which allows me to implement the desired functionality. Unfortunately, DevExtreme Mobile native project templates does not include this plug-in. Am I have to use Eclipse to build native packages, or there is an opportunity to continue using Visual Studio for this purpose?

Starting from version 14.2, we suggest using built-in feature to create a custom template using the PhoneGap Build service. This feature is described in our online documentation: Build Custom PhoneGap Application Template.
Starting from version 2013 vol 1, we provide the capability to replace default native project templates with custom ones. For this purpose, we added the Application template group to the Android package, iOS Package and Windows Phone package pages of the project properties.
In order to create a custom project template, you need to install corresponding platform SDK and Cordova. The detailed instructions can be found in the PhoneGap documentation:

These guides contain project creation sections describing how to setup an empty project. You can create them manually using these guides, or download our project templates available here:
When a custom native project is created and required plug-ins are added, the last step is to export the project into the Android, iOS and Windows Phone packages and put it into an appropriate directory. Then specify the path to these packages in the project properties as described above.
