Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-wkwebview-engine pull request: CB-11074: Ensure set...

Github user ephemer commented on the pull request:
    @shazron in that case we'd have to remove the configuration code from updateWithInfo because
we've already established that it doesn't do anything anyway. It'd be very frustrating for
a new developer to see that code and wonder why it does nothing at all. As far as I can see
it will never work, wkWebView.configuration is listed as `read-only` in Apple's docs. I'd
also rename `updateWithInfo` to `updateDelegates` or similar unless it breaks something else.
    If we just inited the WKWebView once in `pluginInitialize`, I'm pretty certain the `CDVViewController.m`
would fail at the `canLoadRequest:` check and then proceed to replace the `WKWebViewEngine`
with `defaultWebViewEngineClass`, as commented in #7:
        if ( (...) || ![self.webViewEngine canLoadRequest:[NSURLRequest requestWithURL:self.appUrl]])
            self.webViewEngine = [[NSClassFromString(defaultWebViewEngineClass) alloc] initWithFrame:bounds];
    Specifically this is due to the following code in `CDVWKWebViewEngine`:
    `_engineWebView` would still be nil here (because `pluginInitialize` wouldn't have been
called), which would as far as I understand (I'm Swift-first, ObjC when necessary) be coerced
to `NO`, making the above check fail.
    As far as I can see, the only clean solution to this would be to pass `settings` into
the WebViewEngine's `init` method. That is probably also the most logical and explicit way
about getting the settings from `config.xml` into the WebView.
