Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Switch BlackBerry 10 Cordova download from WebWorks to NDK
Date Wed, 05 Dec 2012 19:53:44 GMT
Making sure I understand the steps:

1. User downloads and installs BlackBerry 10 Native SDK and Cordova.
2. Executing the create script to create a project will somehow determine
if the user has the WebWorks SDK and if not...
3. Clone the WebWorks SDK using git.
4. Build the WebWorks SDK.
5. Update the for the project to point at the built
WebWorks SDK.

I would prefer to not dynamically clone and build the WebWorks SDK as part
of Cordova project creation, seems like that could be prone to issues.

I would tend to think the majority of developers would not be building
custom plugins for their application. Would the native SDK be required by
Cordova end developers if Cordova for BlackBerry 10 contains some native
(C++) plugins?
