Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-280) Improve layout of cordova-js scripts
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2012 18:01:38 GMT


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-280:

I don't think there should be a problem landing this for 1.6, assuming we have some time to
make this disruptive shift - keep anyone from landing patches in cordova-js for a day or so.

The only real change besides moving the files around should be the build script.  I don't
anticipate any other code changes.

The "move plugins to their own directory" - like compass, etc, will involve lots of little
code changes.  This may be harder to hit for 1.6.  And I'd like to do the initial re-org of
the base directory as outlined here first.

>             Fix For: 1.6.0
> Originally proposed by Pat on the mailing list. Reorganize the directory names and conventions
used in the builder to make the association between javascript files and modules (and their
ids) clearer.
> From Pat's e-mail:
> - rename `~/lib` to `~/cordova`; there is no more `~/lib`.
> - mkdir ~/platform
> - mkdir ~/platform/android
> - mkdir ~/platform/...
> - move platform-specific stuff in ~/cordova (was ~/lib), in such a way as
> each module exists in a path associated with it's eventual module id,
> prefixed by `~/platform/[whicheverPlatform]`
> - move non-modules into a 'new' `~/lib` directory; it's more than just
> require.js - bootstrap, etc
> Now, to do a build for a platform:
> - collect as modules all files from ~/cordova
> - collect as modules all files from ~/platform/[whicheverPlatform]/cordova
> - collect as scripts all files from ~/lib
> bonusi:
> - the files are laid out exactly as the modules will be named, modulo
> platform-specific prefix directories for platform-specific files; no more
> in-head conversion when I'm looking at directory listings of modules.
