Subject Re: [iOS] Using workspaces
Date Mon, 11 Aug 2014 17:18:31 GMT
I don't see the harm in it, but would be interested to know what the wins
are, and how much work it would be to accomplish.

e.g. Does the CordovaLib project not currently work within an xcworkspace?
Is the current integration as simple as deleting CordovaLib as a subproject
and adding it as a child to the workspace? If so, maybe just add some docs?

I like the idea of putting plugins in their own project file (separate from
the app's main one), but again it's a bit a work.
