Subject RE: Update: Plugins Registry warnings
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2015 01:29:28 GMT
On a related note, was our plan to do re-direction from old plugin registry ID to npm ID? I
still get a warning and no automatic re-direction with latest cordova.

cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.camera
Fetching plugin "org.apache.cordova.camera" via npm
WARNING: org.apache.cordova.camera has been renamed to cordova-plugin-camera. You may not
be getting the latest version! We suggest you `cordova plugin rm org.apache.cordova.camera`
and `cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-camera`.

Thanks,
Nikhil

Subject: Re: Update: Plugins Registry warnings

So I have a PR ready to make the registry read-only. [1]

Unfortunately, plugman don't support outputting the errors received from the registry to our
users. `plugman publish PLUGIN` outputs `publish fail`.

Even though I added a nice error message to the registry, users won't see it. Maybe other
tools which consume plugins directly from the registry will be able to use this message.

If others have better suggestions for this problem, please share.

Any holdback on me merging this commit and deploying it?

Note: I accidentally pushed my original commit to the wrong origin (apache) so reverted it.
