Subject cli plugins 'alias'?
Date Sat, 31 Aug 2013 21:36:58 GMT
Setting up the mobile spec app was tedious since I didn't know the dependencies.

I wrote a small patch that allows to pull a plugin from a git subdirectory
e.g. cordova plugin add

It got me thinking there might an opportunity to make this less tedious with an 'alias'

e.g. cordova plugin add @cordova-test

The @ symbol signals an 'alias' (cordova-test) that cli would expand to "https://.../cordova-plugin-battery-status
https://.../cordova-plugin-device etc..."
The list of plugins simply gets passed to plugman.

A couple of 'core' aliases could make it easier to get started with cordova, e.g.
cordova plugin add @cordova-common
cordova plugin add @cordova-test
cordova plugin rm @cordova-test

Could also be called packaged / collection /  grouped plugins.
