Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5034) Document plugin registry
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 19:45:41 GMT


Mike Billau commented on CB-5034:

Plugman   Adds registry commands
to the file including how to change the registry's URL. `plugman help` already had
comments about the registry, these just weren't reflected in the

    help command: Adds the search command to
the CLI's help file. Currently the CLI is unable to set the registry for plugman so I did
not include the config set commands yet (filed CB-5185 for this) Forgot to add the registry stuff in the above pull request; created a new request
based off of the updated

Command-line Interface guide: It looks like Mike Sierra and Michael Brooks beat me to it with This
adds a line about how the plugins use a registry and how plugin add will take the plugin id,
along with some examples of "advanced plugin usage." Looks great. It doesn't talk about using
3rd party registries but I think that can wait until the CLI can change plugman's registry.

Sorry that it took me a little while to get to this.

> I can't find any reference to the plugin registry anywhere in our documentation. Am I
looking in the wrong place or are we waiting for the web component to be more polished before
announcing the registry? 
> I think some places the registry should be mentioned:
> Plugman:
> CLI:
>  cordova help command (CB-5031)
> docs:

Plugins", and in this new section talk about adding plugins, automatic plugin installation
(plugin dependencies), and the registry)
