Subject Proof-of-Concept: Studio Project Structure Cleanup
Date Fri, 09 Jun 2017 22:27:00 GMT

I know that I've talked about this before, but I think that with the
adoption of Kolton as a supported Android development language and with
recent Gradle changes on the CLI, it's time to migrate our generated
Android project structure to something a bit more modern so that we can
support modern Android development.  That being said, we need to make sure
that existing projects can just keep the same code that has worked for them
working, so here's the branch that I've been working on.  All the plugin
installation works, but I need help with the upgrade scripts working for
both structures:

Here's the PR: (It's HUGE)

The downside of all of this is that we've now forever adopted to keep track of all the Android libraries that the
plugins use, but that's the price we have to pay currently if we want to be
able to have the plugins install gradle dependencies, otherwise managing
the dependencies would be a nightmare.  (You'd think Gradle could do this
on its own, but nope)

So, if anyone hates Java and wants to write Kolton, or if people just want
their Cordova-Android projects to look like a regular Android project, this
PR may be right for you.  Feel free to check it out.  This would be a
Cordova-Android 7.0 change.

BTW: This is not directly related to Android O, but it may help.
