Subject RE: New project <PATH> vs. <NAME>

Bumping this again. 

Can anyone pls. review following PRs:

This is an implementation for CB-7231 “Provide more control over CordovaProjectName vs CordovaAppName”
These changes adds a new option for cli and Android tooling  - --projectname that allow to
user to specify main class name, different from application name. This is necessary when application
name contains non-ASCII characters since ADK tools can't properly handle this situation.

Implementation is for Android only, since we don't see any problems with other platforms.

I think we need to decide should it be a core option that can be defined via CLI command or
in config.xml or just an android optio/preference.
And if it is a core, do we need it for all platforms, or for android only?

Best regards, Vladimir

Hi all!

I’ve started working on implementation for CB-7231 “Provide more control over CordovaProjectName
vs CordovaAppName” [1].

Draft implementation for android is ready, you can review it here:

1.General changes in cli/lib
  * ProjectName can be specified via --projectname option for cli create command;
  * It's written to config.xml into <projectname> element.
    Another option - store Project name into <name> element's attribute - <name projectname="ProjName">AppName<name>

2. Android part of implementation:
  * ProjectName can be specified for bin/create script via --projectname option;
  * If specified, used for main activity/class name replacement;

3. Android_parser in cli
  * update_from_config() method handles <projectname>  element in config.xml during
prepare step and renames main class and changes activity name in manifest according to <projectname>
  * in case of <projectname> element removal main class and activity name are remains
unchanged from last rename. 

For discussion:
1. Currently I use <projectname> element to store ProjectName at config.xml? Another
possible option - use <name projectname=""> approach, like Carlos proposed.
2. Currently if ProjectName becomes undefined (<projectname> element is removed) main
class file and activity are not being renamed back to app name.


And just a PS. Could anyone pls. give me permissions at JIRA so I can assign issues to myself?


Best regards, Vladimir
