Subject RE: cordova-osx - mothball
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2015 00:34:52 GMT
There is a massive PR currently in the works that is looking to change how platforms should
expose their functionality:
https://github.com/apache/cordova-android/pull/179

It leans on using node modules and 'require' as opposed to executing shell scripts. Steve:
As you try building these new platform which sounds really exciting, consider using this new
approach of defining the platform and provide feedback to that PR.

Thanks,
Nikhil
