Subject RE: Integrate binaries (apk / ipa) upload to stores into Cordova CLI
Date Tue, 10 Nov 2015 20:29:07 GMT
I personally think that this is super useful. Maybe it does not make sense in the code, but
I would love to use this as a node module in my build process. It would be a good start to
put get a node module that does it. If Cordova developers use it, it would then be a matter
of simply consuming that code. If there are legal issues, they developers at least have a
choice of using this "third party" node module.

Subject: Re: Integrate binaries (apk / ipa) upload to stores into Cordova CLI

Useful or not, I don’t think uploading binaries belongs in core. There are plenty of third-party
offerings that work well, and they shoulder the support as well. Bringing uploading into core
is just one more thing that Cordova devs would then need to support.

So although it’s useful and time-saving, it should be a third-party plugin/add-on, not core,
in my opinion.

I get your point, still think though that it would be a useful feature for many developers
because it saves lots of time when you have your apps already set up. Cordova could later
work on making Continuous Integration an easy step.  

Talking about documenting the process of adding one app to the stores is not an easy task
and it could take a lot of time to make a great and useful doc, not just a basic text with
no clear explanations, that's why i think i'm not the best guy to do that. I would be happy
to contribute if the structure of the documentation on this subject was already defined. I'm
thinking like videos of screen captures of the various steps of could be a better option than
raw text.
