Subject Re: Simulating Cordova plugins and device capabilities
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2015 16:44:58 GMT
Hi Tim,

Nice work. I was going to point you towards Ripple[1], until I saw you have
the most recent commit.  Can you elaborate on why/how you feel this fits
into cordova and not into the ripple project?

Personally, I think it is a better fit in ripple, or at the minimum, as a
separate module/repo in cordova that can function and be added

There is a lengthy discussion on browser vs ripple here [2]
