Subject Re: [cordova-plugins/keyboard] Publishing as core
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 01:19:18 GMT
Some background on the keyboard plugin.

This was extracted from the iOS core, and put into its own plugin so
updates are not tied to a platform release, and fixes can be rapid. Someone
filed this issue and I didn't
know that BlackBerry also supported some of the keyboard preferences, so it
might be multi-platform -- the BB code is definitely not extracted out into
this plugin.

The issues related to the keyboard are under the label "keyboard-plugin" in
JIRA, and there are currently 18 open issues. It is a complicated plugin
(see its mobile-spec manual tests), and complicated to test.

I am not opposed to it being under the "labs" namespace. After talking to
the Adobe team, we could also host the plugin under the PhoneGap Github
org, but I'd rather use that as a last resort.
