Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5848) Support for Android expansion files
Date Sun, 26 Jan 2014 11:03:38 GMT


Valerio Santinelli commented on CB-5848:

I understand the reasons behind trying to avoid having large assets. But right now I can't
find any alternative solution for being able to access big assets in another way. 

And if you are in such situation, there really is no solution except writing some custom code
to do like Joe says and download the big assets during application startup or something like

>                 Key: CB-5848
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 3.3.0
>            Reporter: Valerio Santinelli
>            Priority: Minor
> As you might already know, Android .APK files cannot exceed 50Mb if you want to make
them available on Google Play Store.
> For bigger apps, you can add one or more expansion files (.obb)
> The request would be to have Cordova automatically put the content of the www folder
into an obb file so that all the assets won't be bundled with the app itself. 
> That way, even if the assets are huge, you can still publish on Google Play Store.
> Right now there is no way to publish any app that exceeds 50Mb. I have seen some OS projects
trying to deal with this, but right now there's no working solution.
