Subject Re: CordovaPlugin intialized immediately
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 18:56:08 GMT
Yup. Should be supported on most platforms, but curiously undocumented(!):
http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/3.5.0/plugin_ref_spec.md.html#Plugin%20Specification

It was previously documented here for example:
http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/3.1.0/guide_platforms_android_plugin.md.html

Current plugin example:
https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-splashscreen/blob/5d25cf0250ca48b0ed9cce20e2199bfa3e1eef50/plugin.xml#L69
