Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-2343) Can not add plugin to project using 'cordova plugin add <path>'
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2013 21:56:13 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-2343:

I am still helping to fix this but I have found the root cause.

For Android, you need to change the {{parent}} attribute of the {{<config-file>}} element.
It should be {{/cordova/plugins}} instead of {{/plugins}}. Once you do that, installation
into Android projects will work.

For iOS, the plugin installation code is looking for a .plist file to determine if the specified
path to your iOS project is an actual iOS project. However, in 2.4.0rc1, we moved from a {{Cordova.plist}}
file to a {{config.xml}} file. I am looking into patching that at the moment.

I will update this issue once I have patches landed and I'll give you instructions on trying
it out :)

add children to res/xml/config.xml

a PhoneGap project'
