Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6208) Docs do not mention Git requirement for plugin adding
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2014 21:36:44 GMT


Marcel Kinard commented on CB-6208:

Actually, I find it weird that the CLI uses git like this at project creation time. Would
it make more sense for it to treat app-hello-world files similar to platforms that are versioned
and stored in npm and cached locally? Strange as it may seem, there are app developers behind
a corporate firewall without Internet access, and I think they may be broken. A change could
also line up better with the shrinkwrap.

> Twice now I've run into people who have an issue adding a plugin because they don't have
Git installed. While the error is pretty clear, it is in the middle of a bunch of other output
and the docs should note that this is a dependancy. To be fair, it isn't necessarily something
you need to run a CLI, but as soon as you add a plugin (which is pretty much *always* required
now), you run into it.
