Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3393) plugin_loader.js and path issue
Date Wed, 15 May 2013 23:51:16 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-3393:

[~purplecabbage] the problem is that XHR resolves URLs based on the current HTML page, not
based on the location of the JavaScript file that the XHR originates from.

cordova.js makes an XHR to the relative URL "cordova_plugins.json". This works fine for an
HTML page in the root of your app, but if you have subdirectories containing HTML files that
reference cordova.js, the relative URL employed in cordova.js gets resolved relative to the
HTML page.

> Blackberry dudes added a commit to plugin_loader.js that made the path to cordova_plugins.js
absolute. This broke plugin loading for ios + android. See

> It works again on Android and iOS. Issue that arises now is that cordova.js expects cordova_plugins.json
to be in the same directory as it. If you have cordova.js in a js directory and cordova_plugins.json
exists in a directory above, the plugin will not load because it won't be able to find cordova_plugins.
> Can we reference cordova_plugins in a way that will work across platform?
