Subject FYI: Created a plugin to help with local plugin development
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2014 22:13:50 GMT
Took the opportunity to use our new plugin hooks and created a plugin to
automate a tedious task I've been doing a lot of recently: plugin

As per the README:

This plugin with automatically upgrade (re-install) a set of plugins
(specified by you) before every cordova prepare. This is useful if you are
doing plugin development and would like to automatically synchronize your
app with any changes made to your plugin.

Install the plugin: cordova plugin add

At root of your app, create a pluginAutoUpgrade.json file, which looks like:



This is useful if you are making changes to a plugin inside the plugin's
directory structure.

For more meaty plugin work, you are possibly better off making native
changes inside platforms/ and js changes inside plugins/, and being very
careful to not clobber your work (or use the build/run scripts directly to
skip prepare entirely).  I'm considering improving that workflow as well.

For now, I've found this plugin useful for minor plugin work.  Sharing in
case you do, too.
