Subject [GitHub] cordova-js issue #146: CB-13163: fix using relative paths in calls to requir...

Github user stevengill commented on the issue:
    I had to revert this as it broke all of our plugins that use local require syntax (ex.
cordova device-motion at
    cordova's require handles local require very differently than node's local require.
    Cordova require would convert `require('./Acceleration')` into `cordova-plugin-device-motion.Acceleration`.
Then is uses some sort of mapping to grab and include the code (I haven't dug into it)
    This PR wants `require(./logger)` to become `require('cordova/plugin/ios/logger')` instead
of `cordova-plugin-console.logger`. (Once again, I haven't dug into why the mapping isn't
working now that the plugin is local. I think it is because the console plugin code is baked
into cordova.js instead of being included during runtime like plugin js code).
    Instead of this PR, I'm going to fix the require call at
    It will change from `require('./logger')` into `require('cordova/plugin/ios/logger')`.
Now the local require is working for logger and cordova's local require continues working
as it has been for the last few years.
    Ultimately, cordova.js & how we load plugins needs to rethought and refactored.
