Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2234) add "about" command to CLI
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 18:44:12 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-2234:

The following would all be useful:

- the version of the cli tools (output of {{cordova -v}})
- the list of commands executed
- config.xml inside {{www/}} folder
- if specific platforms are involved, then the versions of associated SDKs. For ios, the output
of {{xcodebuild -version}}. For Android, the output of {{android list target}} to see which
SDK(s) the user has installed.

> When users post a question about "function x in Cordova isn't working", there is a default
set of info that would be helpful to have, such as the Cordova version, OS version, perhaps
the config.xml, and so forth. So how about if there is a "cordova about" command added to
the CLI that can programmatically gather that information up, stuff it into a file, and leave
the file on the user's system. Then we can ask the users to "run the 'cordova about' command
and attach your about.txt file to the Jira issue". The intention is to make it easy and consistent
to get information about the user's environment to help us debug issues. The information should
be totally transparent, so the user can see what data they are sending.
