Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-6384) Easier way to manage plugin creation on the native side
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 17:55:15 GMT
István Gansperger created CB-6384:

             Summary: Easier way to manage plugin creation on the native side
                 Key: CB-6384
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Android
    Affects Versions: 3.4.0
            Reporter: István Gansperger
            Priority: Minor

In my current project, I needed an easy way to write an HTML/Javascript GUI for my Java backend
and I chose Cordova for this task on Android. It occured to me that I couldn't find an easy
way to customize my CordovaPlugins beyond the initialize and exec methods. For example I needed
to provide my plugin with an instance of another object implementing my communication interface.
I didn't find a plausible way to do it in the current implementation so I wrote my own PluginFactory
object and readjusted some of the source files to take such on object instead of providing
a hardcoded default implementation. I'm curious if such a feature would be deemed to be necessary
by others.

I'm quite a newbie programmer but my proof of concept can be found here:
