Subject Re: Where to download Cordova shell tools?
Date Wed, 02 Dec 2015 01:16:53 GMT
Sure. But for the example above, where someone wants cordova-android
(especially with the new platform API), we are going to see more people
wanting to require('cordova-android'). We should atleast provide links to
our official download distributions on our site. If not on the
contributions page, somewhere else. Maybe the repos that aren't published
to npm just don't get the link?

Another example, how does someone figure out how to install plugman
currently?
