Subject RE: Manual iOS steps for a Cordova plugin... really?
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:27:27 GMT
I think this is a good example of why plugin hooks support could be very useful.
https://github.com/MSOpenTech/cordova-lib/blob/795d40c9c98d1ecef0a63fc81a95d2b070f5bce2/cordova-lib/templates/hooks-README.md

https://github.com/apache/cordova-lib/pull/55 

PS. Not sure how pushwoosh manages this, I ended up with just documenting this as a manual
step in similar situation.

Thx!
Sergey

I think there are other ways of doing this, take a look into other push plugins, like the
oficial pushplugin or the pushwoosh plugin.

I think i've even answered something like this on stackoverflow, I'll look into this and let
you know
