-# plugin.xml Manifest Format
-
-The `plugin.xml` file is an XML document in the plugins namespace -
-`http://apache.org/cordova/ns/plugins/1.0`. It contains a top-level `plugin`
-element defining the plugin, and children that define the structure of the
-plugin.
-
-A sample plugin element:
-
-	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
-    <plugin xmlns="http://apache.org/cordova/ns/plugins/1.0"
-        xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
-        id="com.alunny.foo"
-        version="1.0.2">
-
-
-## &lt;plugin&gt; element
-
-The `plugin` element is the top-level element of the plugin manifest. It has the
-following attributes:
-
-### xmlns (required)
-
-The plugin namespace - `http://apache.org/cordova/ns/plugins/1.0`. If the document
-contains XML from other namespaces - for example, tags to be added to the
-AndroidManifest.xml file - those namespaces should also be included in the
-top-level element.
-
-### id (required)
-
-A reverse-domain style identifier for the plugin - for example, `com.alunny.foo`
-
-### version (required)
-
-A version number for the plugin, that matches the following major-minor-patch
-style regular expression:
-
-    ^\d+[.]\d+[.]\d+$
-
-## &lt;engines&gt; and &lt;engine&gt; elements
-
-The child elements of the `<engines>` element specify versions of
-Apache Cordova-based frameworks that this plugin supports. An example:
-
-    <engines>
-        <engine name="cordova" version="1.7.0" />
-        <engine name="cordova" version="1.8.1" />
-        <engine name="worklight" version="1.0.0" />
-    </engines>
-
-Similarly to the `version` attribute for the `<plugin>` element,
-the version string specified should match a major-minor-patch string
-conforming to the regular expression:
-
-    ^\d+[.]\d+[.]\d+$
-
-Engine elements may also have fuzzy matches to avoid repetition, and reduce
-maintenance when the underlying platform is updated. A minimum of `>`, `>=`,
-`<` and `<=` should be supported by tools, such as:
-
-    <engines>
-        <engine name="cordova" version=">=1.7.0" />
-        <engine name="cordova" version="<1.8.1" />
-    </engines>
-
-plugman will abort plugin installation if the target project does not meet the engine constraints,
and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-If no `<engine>` tags are specified, plugman will attempt to install into the specified
cordova project directory blindly.
-
-## &lt;name&gt; element
-
-A human-readable name for the plugin. The text content of the element contains
-the name of the plugin. Has to be lower case and cannot contain spaces or special characters.
An example:
-
-    <name>foo</name>
-
-This element does not (yet) handle localization.
-
-## &lt;description&gt; element
-
-A human-readable description for the plugin. The text content of the element contains
-the description of the plugin. An example:
-
-    <description>foo plugin description</description>
-
-This element does not (yet) handle localization.
-
-## &lt;author&gt; element
-
-Plugin author name. The text content of the element contains
-the name of the plugin author. An example:
-
-    <author>foo plugin description</author>
-
-## &lt;keywords&gt; element
-
-Plugin keywords. The text content of the element contains comma separated keywords to describe
the plugin. An example:
-
-    <keywords>foo,bar</keywords>
-
-## &lt;license&gt; element
-
-Plugin license. The text content of the element contains the plugin license. An example:
-
-    <license>Apache</license>
-
-## &lt;asset&gt; element
-
-One or more elements listing the files or directories to be copied into a
-Cordova app's `www` directory. A couple of samples:
-
-    <!-- a single file, to be copied in the root directory -->
-    <asset src="www/foo.js" target="foo.js" />
-    <!-- a directory, also to be copied in the root directory -->
-    <asset src="www/foo" target="foo" />
-
-All assets tags require both a `src` attribute and a `target` attribute. Web-only plugins
would contains mainly `<asset>` elements. `<asset>` elements can also be nested
under `<platform>` elements, to specify platform-specific web assets (see below).
-
-### src (required)
-
-Where the file or directory is located in the plugin package, relative to the
-`plugin.xml` document.
-
-If a file does not exist at the specified `src` location, plugman will stop/reverse the installation
process and notify the user, and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-### target (required)
-
-Where the file or directory should be located in the Cordova app, relative to
-the `www` directory.
-
-Assets can be targeted to subdirectories - for instance:
-
-    <asset src="www/new-foo.js" target="js/experimental/foo.js" />
-
-would create the `js/experimental` directory in the `www` directory, if not
-present, and then copy the file `new-foo.js` as `foo.js` into that directory.
-
-If a file exists at the target location, plugman will stop/reverse the installation process
and notify the user of the conflict, and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-## &lt;js-module&gt; element
-
-A typical plugin includes one or more JavaScript files. Rather than have the user of your
plugin add `<script>` tags for your JavaScript to their HTML file(s) manually, you should
use `<js-module>` tags for your Javascript files.
-
-`<asset>` tags are a dumb copy: copy a file from the plugin subdirectory to `www`.
-
-In contrast, `<js-module>` tags are much more sophisticated. They look like this:
-
-    <js-module src="socket.js" name="Socket">
-        <clobbers target="chrome.socket" />
-    </js-module>
-
-With the above example, after installing a plugin, this tool will copy socket.js to `www/plugins/my.plugin.id/socket.js`.
Further, it will add an entry for this plugin to `www/cordova_plugins.js`. At load time, code
in `cordova.js` will use an XHR to read this file, inject a `<script>` tag for each
Javascript file, and add a mapping to clobber or merge as appropriate (see below).
-
-DO NOT wrap the file with `cordova.define`; this will be added automatically. Your module
will be wrapped in a closure, and will have `module`, `exports` and `require` in scope, as
normal for AMD modules.
-
-Details for the `<js-module>` tag:
-
-* The `src` points to a file in the plugin directory relative to the `plugin.xml` file.
-* The `name` gives the last part of the module name. It can generally be whatever you like,
and it only matters if you want to use `cordova.require` to import other parts of your plugins
in your JavaScript code. The module name for a `<js-module>` is your plugin's `id` followed
by the value of `name`. For the example above, with an `id` of `chrome.socket`, the module
name is `chrome.socket.Socket`.
-* Inside the `<js-module>` tag there are three legal sub-tags:
-    * `<clobbers target="some.value" />` indicates that the `module.exports` will be
inserted into the `window` object as `window.some.value`. You can have as many `<clobbers>`
as you like. If the object(s) does not exist on `window`, they will be created.
-    * `<merges target="some.value" />` indicates that your module should be merged
with any existing value at `window.some.value`. If any key already exists, you module's version
overrides the original. You can have as many `<merges>` as you like. If the object(s)
does not exist on `window`, they will be created.
-    * `<runs />` means that your code should be `cordova.require`d, but not installed
on the `window` object anywhere. This is useful for initializing the module, attaching event
handlers or otherwise. You can only have 0 or 1 `<runs />` tags. Note that including
a `<runs />` with `<clobbers />` or `<merges />` is redundant, since they
also `cordova.require` your module.
-    * An empty `<js-module>` will still be loaded and can be `cordova.require`d in
other modules.
-
-If `src` does not resolve to a file that can be found, plugman will stop/reverse the installation,
notify the user of the problem and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-`<js-module>` elements can also be nested under `<platform>`, to declare platform-specific
JavaScript module bindings.
-
-
-## &lt;dependency&gt;
-
-Dependency tags let you specify plugins on which this plugin depends. In the future there
will be plugin repositories to fetch plugins from. In the short term, plugins are directly
pointed to by URLs in `<dependency>` tags. These tags have the following format:
-
-    <dependency id="com.plugin.id" url="https://github.com/myuser/someplugin" commit="428931ada3891801"
subdir="some/path/here" />
-
-* `id`: gives the ID of the plugin. This should be globally unique, and in reverse-domain
style. Neither of these restrictions is currently enforced, but they may be in the future
and plugins should still follow them.
-* `url`: A URL for the plugin. This should point to a git repository, since plugman will
try to `git clone` it.
-* `commit`: This is any git ref. It can be a branch or tag name (eg. `master`, `0.3.1`),
a commit hash (eg. `975ddb228af811dd8bb37ed1dfd092a3d05295f9`), anything understood by `git
checkout`.
-* `subdir`: Specifies that the plugin we're interested in exists as a subdirectory of the
git repository. This is helpful because it allows one to keep several related plugins in a
sigle git repository, and specify the plugins in it individually.
-
-In the future, version constraints will be introduced, and a plugin repository will exist
to support fetching by name instead of explicit URLs.
-
-### Relative Dependency Paths
-
-You can set the `url` of a `<dependency>` tag to `"."`, and give it a `subdir`. Then
the dependent plugin will be installed from the same local or remote git repository as the
parent plugin where the `<dependency>` tag is.
-
-Note that the `subdir` is, as always, relative to the _root of the git repository_, not the
parent plugin. This is true even if you installed the plugin with a local path directly to
it. Plugman will find the root of the git repository and then find the other plugin from there.
-
-## &lt;platform&gt;
-
-Platform tags identify platforms that have associated native code and/or require configuration
file modifications. Tools using
-this specification can identify supported platforms and install the code into
-Cordova projects.
-
-Plugins without `<platform>` tags are assumed to be JS-only, and therefore installable
on any and all platforms.
-
-A sample platform tag:
-
-    <platform name="android">
-    <!-- android specific elements -->
-    </platform>
-    <platform name="ios">
-    <!-- ios specific elements -->
-    </platform>
-
-### name (required)
-
-The `name` attribute identifies a platform as supported - it also associates the
-element's children with that platform.
-
-Platform names should be all-lowercase. Platform names, as arbitrarily chosen,
-are listed:
-
-* android
-* bb10
-* ios
-* wp7
-* wp8
-
-## &lt;source-file&gt;
-
-`source-file` elements identify executable source code that should be installed
-into a project. A couple of examples:
-
-    <!-- android -->
-    <source-file src="src/android/Foo.java"
-                    target-dir="src/com/alunny/foo" />
-    <!-- ios -->
-    <source-file src="src/ios/CDVFoo.m" />
-    <source-file src="src/ios/someLib.a" framework="true" />
-    <source-file src="src/ios/someLib.a" compiler-flags="-fno-objc-arc" />
-
-
-### src (required)
-
-Where the file is located, relative to the `plugin.xml` file.
-
-If `src` does not resolve to a file that can be found, plugman will stop/reverse the installation,
notify the user of the problem and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-### target-dir
-
-A directory where the files should be copied into, relative to the root of the
-Cordova project.
-
-In practice, this is most important for Java-based platforms, where a file in
-the package `com.alunny.foo` has be located under the directory
-`com/alunny/foo`. For platforms where the source directory is not important,
-plugin authors should omit this attribute.
-
-As with assets, if a `source-file`'s `target` would overwrite an existing file, plugman will
stop/reverse the installation, notify the user and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-### framework
-
-Only used for iOS. If set to `true`, will also add the specified file as a framework to the
project.
-
-### compiler-flags
-
-Only used for iOS. If set, will assign the specified compiler flags for the particular source
file.
-
-## &lt;config-file&gt;
-
-Identifies an XML-based configuration file to be modified, where in that
-document the modification should take place, and what should be modified.
-
-Two file types that have been tested for modification with this element are `xml` and `plist`
files. 
-
-The `config-file` element only allows for appending
-new children into an XML document. The children are XML literals that are the
-to be inserted in the target document.
-
-Example for XML:
-
-    <config-file target="AndroidManifest.xml" parent="/manifest/application">
-        <activity android:name="com.foo.Foo" android:label="@string/app_name">
-            <intent-filter>
-            </intent-filter>
-        </activity>
-    </config-file>
-
-Example for plist:
-
-
-    <config-file target="*-Info.plist" parent="CFBundleURLTypes">
-        <array>
-            <dict>
-                <key>PackageName</key>
-                <string>$PACKAGE_NAME</string>
-            </dict>
-        </array>
-    </config-file>
-
-### target
-
-The file to be modified, and the path relative to the root of the Cordova
-project.
-
-The target can include a wildcard (`*`) element. In this case, plugman will recursively search
through the project directory structure and use the first match.
-
-On iOS, the location of configuration files relative to the project directory root is not
known. Specifying a target of `config.xml` will resolve to `cordova-ios-project/MyAppName/config.xml`.
-
-If the specified file does not exist, the tool will ignore the configuration change and continue
installation.
-
-### parent
-
-An XPath selector pointing to the parent of the elements to be added to the config file.
If absolute selectors are used, you can use a wildcard (`*`) to specify the root element,
e.g. `/*/plugins`.
-
-For plist files, the parent is used to determine under what parent key should the specified
XML be inserted.
-
-If the selector does not resolve to a child of the specified document, the tool should stop/reverse
the installation process, warn the user, and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-## &lt;plugins-plist&gt;
-
-This is OUTDATED as it only applies to cordova-ios 2.2.0 and below. Use `<config-file>`
tag for newer versions of Cordova.
-
-Example:
-
-    <config-file target="config.xml" parent="/widget/plugins">
-         <plugin name="ChildBrowser" value="ChildBrowserCommand"/>
-    </config-file>
-
-Specifies a key and value to append to the correct `AppInfo.plist` file in an
-iOS Cordova project. Example:
-
-    <plugins-plist key="Foo" string="CDVFoo" />
-
-
-## &lt;resource-file&gt; and &lt;header-file&gt;
-
-Like source files, but specifically for platforms that distinguish between
-source files, headers, and resources (iOS).
-
-Examples:
-
-    <resource-file src="CDVFoo.bundle" />
-    <resource-file src="CDVFooViewController.xib" />
-    <header-file src="CDVFoo.h" />
-
-## &lt;lib-file&gt;
-
-Like source, resource and header files but specifically for platforms that use user generated
libraries (BB10).
-
-Examples:
-
-    <lib-file src="src/BlackBerry10/native/device/libfoo.so" arch="device" />
-    <lib-file src="src/BlackBerry10/native/simulator/libfoo.so" arch="simulator" />
-
-
-### src (required)
-
-Where the file is located, relative to the `plugin.xml` file.
-
-If `src` does not resolve to a file that can be found, plugman will stop/reverse the installation,
notify the user of the problem and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-### arch
-
-The architecture that the `.so` file has been built for. Valid values are `device` and `simulator`.
-
-## &lt;framework&gt;
-
-Identifies a framework (usually part of the OS/platform) that the plugin depends on.
-
-Examples:
-
-    <framework src="libsqlite3.dylib" />
-    <framework src="social.framework" weak="true" />
-
-plugman identifies the framework through the `src` attribute and attempts to add the framework
to the Cordova project, in the correct fashion for a given platform.
-
-The optional `weak` attribute is a boolean denoting whether the framework should be weakly-linked.
Default is `false`.
-
-## &lt;info&gt;
-
-The tool will provide additional information to users. This is useful when you require some
extra steps that can't be easily automated or are out of the scope of plugman.
-
-Examples:
-
-    <info>
-    You need to install **Google Play Services** from the `Android Extras` section using
the Android SDK manager (run `android`).
-
-    You need to add the following line to your `local.properties`
-        
-    android.library.reference.1=PATH_TO_ANDROID_SDK/sdk/extras/google/google_play_services/libproject/google-play-services_lib
-    </info>
-
-# Variables
-
-In certain cases, a plugin may need to make configuration changes dependent on
-the target application. For example, to register for C2DM on Android, an app
-with package id `com.alunny.message` would need a permission like:
-
-    <uses-permission
-    android:name="com.alunny.message.permission.C2D_MESSAGE"/>
-
-In cases like this (where the content inserted from the `plugin.xml` file is
-not known ahead of time), variables can be indicated by a dollar-sign and a
-series of capital letters, digits and underscores. For the above example, the
-`plugin.xml` file would include this tag:
-
-    <uses-permission
-    android:name="$PACKAGE_NAME.permission.C2D_MESSAGE"/>
-
-plugman replaces variable references with the
-correct value, if specified, or the empty string otherwise. The value of the
-variable reference may be detected (in this case, from the `AndroidManifest.xml`
-file), or specified by the user of the tool; the exact process is dependent on
-the particular tool.
-
-plugman can request users to specify variables required by a plugin. For example API keys
for C2M and Google Maps can be specified as a command line argument like so:
-
-    plugman --platform android --project /path/to/project --plugin name|git-url|path --variable
API_KEY=!@CFATGWE%^WGSFDGSDFW$%^#$%YTHGsdfhsfhyer56734
-
-A preference tag will need to be present inside the platform tag to make the variable mandatory
like so:
-
-    <preference name="API_KEY" />
-
-plugman should check that these required preferences are passed in, and if not, should warn
the user on how to pass the variable in and exit with a non-zero code.
-
-Certain variable names should be reserved - these are listed below.
-
-## $PACKAGE_NAME
-
-The reverse-domain style unique identifier for the package - corresponding to
-the `CFBundleIdentifier` on iOS or the `package` attribute of the top-level
-`manifest` element in an `AndroidManifest.xml` file.
