Subject RE: Build signed archives using CLI
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2015 18:29:31 GMT
Yeah personally I am thinking that - particularly if we treat platforms as dependencies in package.json as proposed - we'll need some facility to set native build settings. We may be able to come up with some sort of abstraction for this part, but I'm kind of thinking we'll ultimately want a facility to include native build property files (ant/gradle.properties, things like the signing identity in build.xcconfig, etc) in the CLI project.  That said, we could have another facility for common settings like certs.

Subject: Re: Build signed archives using CLI

Sounds good, let's wait until Dan is back to discuss. The main point I'd like to cover is whether it'd be good to have layer of indirection between cordova and the platform-specific files that dictate signing info.

E.g.:
Instead of using ant.properties / gradle.properties / build.xcconfig, have:

cordova-keys.json
 {
    ios: { identity: "", provisioning_profile: "" },
    android-debug: { keystore: "", alias: "", password: "", type: "" },
    android-release: { keystore: "", alias: "", password: "", type: "" }
    ...
}

Then, have a prepare step that makes the platforms do the right thing

(Note that for android it's important to have debug siging keys as well since they are used for Play Services and Cloud Console APIs).
