Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3216) cordova-cli project upgrade path
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2013 08:05:19 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-3216:

I'm not sure how the cordova-cli tooling is supposed to keep track of arbitrary bit changes
you make to the native build artifacts (anything under the platforms/ directory). Doesn't
version control solve that problem?

Essentially, until those types of changes can be abstracted away into the config.xml (the
icons + splash screens is a good example, which is why we have outstanding issues like CB-3301
to solve this), you should be versioning the native projects that cordova-cli creates anyways.

Like I said above, this is not a simple problem to solve, and it depends how far you want
to solve the problem for the users. If you have ideas or prototypes on how to solve this issue,
the cordova community would love any help and contributions to make this happen.

> Hi,
> I wanted to upgrade an cordova-cli 2.5 generated project tree (with ios and android platforms)
to the latest cordova-cli 2.6 version.
> I somehow managed to do this by reading
after upgrading my npm cordova package ("npm -g update cordova"), but file paths and a few
details are not 100% identical, and I end up being not sure I did everything correctly. (Although
both patforms compile correctly)
> Is there some kind of upgrade guide somewhere, that explains this task? In my case, it's
hard do delete both platforms and recreate them, since boths contain native plugins. But if
it's the way to go, it is not such a big deal eiter...
> A "cordova platform update ios" or "cordova platform update android" would be great.
Any chance we can have that one day?
> Best regards,
> Philippe
