Subject Re: Adding Examples for Plugins in the ReadMe
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2016 16:43:52 GMT
Currently, 'Cordova plugin add local/path' will copy the entire contents of local/path to currentApp/plugins/new-plugin

This is only true of local git clones and installs via githuburls.  Npm installs should use
.npmignore to exclude demo code inclusion. 
We should eventually make plugin install honor the text of .npmignore or add an <exclude>
tag to plugin.xml
