Subject Re: Moving .cordova/config.json -> cordova.json
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2014 15:22:33 GMT
What cordova.json has that config.xml doesn't, is that you can set the
location of platforms with it through:

{
  "id":"org.apache.mobilespec",
  "name":"mobilespec",
  "lib": {
    "android": {
      "uri": "/Users/agrieve/git/cordova/cordova-android",
      "version": "dev",
      "id": "cordova-android-dev"
    },
    "ios": {
      "uri": "/Users/agrieve/git/cordova/cordova-ios",
      "version": "dev",
      "id": "cordova-ios-dev"
    }
  }
}


We're also planning on adding plugin search paths in there in
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5006.

That said, I like your idea of having one top-level config file instead of
two. I don't see why we couldn't just put these same settings into a
"cordova.xml".
