Subject Re: Plugman behavior with assets
Date Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:24:04 GMT
My response is very CLI-biased as that is what we use. I haven't used
plugman on its own on old style per-platform projects using the ./bin/*
scripts or an ide like eclipse or xcode.

Certainly on our app, anything related to plugins is irrelevant in ./www as
when working from there,0 plugins aren't loaded anyway (e.g.: debugging non
device functionality in a browser).

We only care about plugin assets when dealing with ./platforms/**/www
(e.g.: debugging/testing on a device or simulator/emulator/VM).

Are there use cases where plugin assets might still be needed when working
from local browser debugging? If so, couldn't you just work from a
./platforms/**/www instead with a quick `cordova prepare <platform>` to get
all assets in place?
