Date Tue, 24 Oct 2017 04:58:37 GMT
GitHub user akdor1154 opened a pull request:

    CB-12774 : Don't munge scoped plugin IDs anymore. Comment requested.

    In order to get plugins that are under an npm scope (e.g. `@akdor1154/some-plugin`) to
install, a previous change from took the approach to consider such a plugin to be called (have
the id) `some-plugin` instead of `@akdor1154/some-plugin`. This allowed scoped plugins to
install and preserved the assumption that plugins will always be installed in `plugins_dir/[plugin_id]`.
    However, it required special parsing logic around `npm` package IDs, and it broke the
assumption that the `name` in an npm plugin's `package.json' would correspond to Cordova's
idea of a plugin ID. IMO this approach is the source of further complexity which is not required,
and is leading to weird bugs and special cases with scoped plugins. (see the linked issue,
but there is stuff as basic as "`npm install` no longer works after installing a scoped plugin")
    This PR changes approach - such plugins are now considered to have the id `@akdor1154/some-plugin`,
in agreement with how npm treats such packages. This allows almost all special cases for scoped
packages to be removed (yay). The key difference in behaviour as a result of this, though,
is that while plugins are still installed in `plugins_dir/[plugin_id]`, `[plugin_id]` may
no longer be a single directory, leading to plugin directories that look like
    |- @akdor1154
    |   |- some-plugin
    |- cordova-some-other-plugin
    Most of the logic changes in this PR are based around making this change work.
    It's largely done how I want it, but I guess maintainers probably have strong opinions
over whether this is the right way to go or not. Because of this I've left some commits in
marked as TEMP that are for my own workflow. Please keep in mind I'll remove these. The only
one you should be mindful of is the monkey patch to `cordova-common`; this would need to be
raised in a separate PR to cordova-common if this change was approved in principle.
