Subject [jira] [Reopened] (CB-3605) package.json bin scripts
Date Mon, 15 Jul 2013 01:01:53 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-3605?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Angela Fowler reopened CB-3605:
-------------------------------


Would be great if the README could be updated to mention the two different ways of creating
a project and say that npm is only needed for the cli tools. At the moment it looks like it
is needed for the create.js which is confusing for a new Cordova developer.

> The "Cordova Android Developer Tools" section talks about installing the dependencies
however the package.json does not contain any dependencies. It contains a "bin" which maps
command names to local file names.
> "bin":
> { "create": "./create", "bench": "./bench", "autotest": "./autotest", "BOOM": "./BOOM",
"test": "./test" }
> 1. The only command in the bin directory is create (and also update which is not in package.json
bin).
> The autotest and test exist in the cordova-cli project but only for ios.
> I could not find bench or BOOM.
> 2. The create script is a bash script. There is also a create.js and create.bat for Windows
which does not appear to require npm.
> Is there any use for npm on Windows in cordova-android?
> 3. Is this how npm looks when correctly installed for cordova-android? Could it have
failed somehow because the repository is pointing to incubator?
> c:\development\cordova-2.7.0\cordova-android\bin>npm list npm WARN package.json cordova-android-cli@0.0.1
No README.md file found!
> cordova-android-cli@0.0.1 c:\development\cordova-2.7.0\cordova-android\bin
> └── (empty)
> Note : npm runs successfully in cordova-js which has several dependencies installed and
listed.
