------------------------------

             Summary: Allow for Cordova-Android to use many different types of WebViews
                 Key: CB-6246
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6246
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android
            Reporter: Joe Bowser
             Fix For: 4.0.0


The Android WebView is an externality that may developers don't want to depend on.  This has
been an ongoing pain point.  That being said, we want to keep the web open, therefore instead
of working on our own WebView, we should allow an interface for third-party layout engines
to be able to be bundled with Cordova, or to be used by Cordova.

This includes projects such as Crosswalk and GeckoView.

Currently a PoC exists here: https://github.com/infil00p/cordova-android/tree/pluggable_webview
