Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1893) Convert cordova.plist -> config.xml
Date Thu, 29 Nov 2012 16:10:59 GMT


Braden Shepherdson commented on CB-1893:

The code I checked in, which is now tagged, is expecting config.xml only. It wouldn't be terribly
hard to support plists too, but I agree that a clean change is less confusing.

I think a conversion script is overkill, it only takes about three to convert one to the other
(30 seconds if you vim macros like a boss) and plenty of people will be able to grab the example
config.xml and tweak one or two settings rather than converting their whole thing.

The current state of error messages is less than ideal. Currently if you try to build but
have no config.xml, you just get an Xcode error message about the missing file :( I'm not
sure how we can improve that. Our users are used to looking at our release notes, featuring
this prominently and pointing to a guide to converting should sort things out.

Are there more docs that need updating?

strictly necessary.
