Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-file pull request: Evo: Document the iosExtraFilesy...
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2014 20:35:03 GMT
Github user clelland commented on the pull request:
    I don't think that recommending `window.requestFileSystem(3,...)` is the right way to
go here. Off the top of my head, I can think of two better ways to access these extra filesystem
    1. Use a `cdvfile://` URL:
        resolveLocalFileSystemURL("cdvfile://localhost/library-nosync/", function(entry) {
           // Successful, use entry
        }, function(err) {
           // Error, do something
    2. Use the `cordova.file.*Directory` properties:
        resolveLocalFileSystemURL(cordova.file.dataDirectory, function(entry) {
           // Successful, use entry
        }, function(err) {
           // Error, do something
    Both of these could be better-documented (one requires you to know how to construct a
cdvfile: URL; the other requires you to now that `dataDirectory` maps to Library-nosync).
I don't want to add instructions that tell people to hard code the magic constant `3`, which
is, as you say, likely to change if the config preference changes.
