Subject Re: npm install on cordova platform/plugin add
Date Sat, 24 Oct 2015 02:13:21 GMT
The requirement will be that 3rd party plugins put exact versions of
dependencies, not assuming that user will need to run npm install or npm
update after adding the plugin to refresh the npm dependencies

Apache Foundation Cordova Platforms and Plugins should ship with it's
dependencies bundled, or use exact versions for dependencies.
This way all users get the same software at the time of adding a platform
or plugin. If not it becomes a big mess of having a certain version of the
platform or plugin if not guarantee to have the same software as everyone
else (not reproducible, not consistent)
