Subject RE: plugin with AAR
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2014 03:05:06 GMT
Thanks for your feedback.

I'm agree with you. I have updated the PR (https://github.com/apache/cordova-lib/pull/111
), could you please take a look it?

The PR is requested in CB-3445 branch, should I commit it this patch in master branch?  Because
I want to use this feature in Cordova 4.0.

Subject: Re: plugin with AAR

Had a look at the PR and think it looks good! Only thing I'd say is that I'd like to reserve
build-extras.gradle for the user (tools shouldn't modify it).

Modifying build.gradle is challenging as well, since it's modified by build.js, and we want
it to be easily replaceable when doing Cordova platform upgrades. However, I don't think it's
that bad so long as we're aware of it, and not too far from what we do already for library
projects.

So, how about adding a section to build.gradle like:

// PLUGIN GRADLE EXTENSIONS START
apply from: 'libs/xwalk_core_library/xwalk.gradle'
// PLUGIN GRADLE EXTENSIONS END


And we modify this list on each plugin add/remove & also make sure to maintain it within
create.js
