Subject Re: reading config.xml during build
Date Tue, 25 Feb 2014 15:32:41 GMT
All the gory details of config files in CLI are here:

In short, that file is turned into a platform-specific config.xml during
the prepare step.

Your best approach to supporting this is probably to read config.xml in a
post-prepare hook. Then it will run during a "build" (build =
prepare+compile), or if you prepare and then use Xcode.
