Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5650) make visible the version of the Cordova native lib
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2014 22:44:19 GMT


Jesse MacFadyen commented on CB-5650:

No consensus?
Log to where exactly? There is no consistent log output cross platform.
All WP7/WP8/Win8 projects include the VERSION file in the project, and the git commit tag
is imprinted into every cordova.js file that is build by cordova-js. 
Every cordova project ( all platforms ) has a per project .cordova/version script which will
return it's version.
Isn't this enough?

> We recently had a situation where a consumer had mismatched the runtime: one version
of cordova.js and another version of the Cordova native code. The consumer gave us their compiled
app, so we didn't have access to the native's source in the project. We had an idea that it
would be nice if the native code compiled in some marker so we could tell what version it
was without the source. Perhaps issue a log on startup saying "Greetings from Cordova native
code 3.2.0", or have something compiled in that would appear in "strings cordova.jar | grep
