Subject Re: Purpose of pre_package hook for windows
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2015 00:24:15 GMT
I am not 100% sure, but as I looked at the code, it seems the original intention of pre_package
hook is to allow users to make any necessary changes before we do windows-specific changes
(for example adding BOM \ufeff in the source codes for windows store certification).

Subject: Re: Purpose of pre_package hook for windows

I can't find any info on why we needed it ... it seems to be fired right
before the files are added to the csproj, though I am not sure why.

The only other person I think may know anything about it would be @sgrebnov

The earliest JIRA ticket I could find on the issue [1] although the issue
is just that it exists in wp7 but not wp8.

Hi, guys.

Could anyone please shed some light on the subject?

Looking into PR for 'nohooks' option [1] I realized that we have a logic
in Windows/wp8 parsers that fires a hooks, specific for these particular
platforms. I see 2 problems with this:

1.       This doesn't fits well into the concept of PlatformApi

2.       The original purpose of the hook is now lost. It was intended to
be fired in the middle of prepare [2], to allow to modify www folder before
it will be packed into app package, but now  it get fired right before the
end of platform preparation, and hence almost equal to 'after_prepare'.

So the question is, should we still have these hooks in new windows
platform? Or we can just move it into LIB and fire just after the prepare
and only for windows/wp8?

Best regards, Vladimir
