Subject Re: Achitecture switch to build/run/emulate commands
Date Thu, 29 May 2014 17:35:56 GMT
I've been looking at this specifically for Android with the Crosswalk
webview. We'd like to be able to build Intel / ARM 32- and 64-bit versions
with Cordova, but we have to handle two big issues:

1. We can already build multi-arch packages, but the Crosswalk library
quickly exceeds the 50MB Play Store limit as you add multiple architectures
2. The play store allows multiple APK files to be uploaded, each
specialized to a particular CPU architecture, but there's no way in Cordova
currently to specify a particular architecture to build.

I think that single-arch packages are the way to go, but we'll need cordova
and plugman support for it. I've started a design document for our work on
this; you can access it here:
