Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-4387) "cordova build" - bad handling of resources (icons, splash screens)
Date Thu, 25 Jul 2013 06:33:48 GMT


Jan Becicka commented on CB-4387:

Thanks Filip. Now I see why "cordova" app is much bigger. Their icons and splash screens are
simply bigger. Anyway assets/www/res folder issue still remains.

> Resulting app has almost 8MB. The problem is, that "www/res" folder, which contains icons
and splashscreens is completely copied into assets/www. So the resulting app contains splash
screens for all possible mobile platforms, which is completely useless. Res folder should
not be copied at all, because right place for resources is res/drawable.
> BTW I tried the same commands with phonegap. Resulting app is significantly smaller (1.7MB)
but it also contains unnecessary resources in www/res.
> Still not understand what is the difference between "phonegap local build" and "cordova
