Subject Re: third-party cordova plugin registry
Date Wed, 16 Oct 2013 01:56:26 GMT
I agree that they should be encouraged.

configuration is stored in plugman (even for cordova-cli) and one can
easily set a registry with `plugman config set registry
http://newregistry' (exactly like NPM).

There were discussions about adding multiple registry support as well
as a fallback to the filesystem and I believe there is an issue for
it.

As far as which plugins go where, I believe it's up to whomever provides it.
