Subject Re: iOS: Why does the cordova.js filename change?
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2012 20:22:57 GMT
On iOS, the cordova.js used to (inertia really because of the legacy
location) be in the CordovaLib folder, and also the template. Since it
was redundant, we only put it in the default template in
bin/templates/project now.

Even this is not ideal with respect to people upgrading and using it
as an embedded WebView -- to grab the new .js they have to create a
new project (or spelunk into the bin/templates folder). Ideally it
should be put back also into CordovaLib because the .js is tightly
coupled to a specific CordovaLib library and version, and for easy
discovery. Don't know what the ideal situation can be here.

have been taken everywhere to be agnostic about what the originating name is, opting to dynamically
update the destination name in build scripts, template generation, etc.?
