Subject Re: Announcing Tools for Apache Cordova (TACO) v1.0.0!
Date Fri, 02 Oct 2015 10:57:17 GMT
I did a quick read through the docs. Is it fair to say the major
benefits of TACO are:

1) You can install a mobile SDK (like Android) much easier.
2) You can build from a Windows machine to an OSX machine on premis
using remotebuild.
3) Kits provide a way to associate platform/plugin versions into a
'safe to use' type bucket.

npm and github.  TACO CLI is completely build on top of the Cordova CLI, so a BIG thank you
to all of you! Here is how you can install it -

This feature builds on top of the check-reqs command provided by the Cordova CLI. TACO also
allows you to connect to the Mac remote build server straight from the command line on their
Windows and Linux machines.
