Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6564) `cordova serve` should report that it is unsupported
Date Wed, 30 Apr 2014 03:29:15 GMT


Andrew Grieve commented on CB-6564:

I do understand the confusion, but I don't know how to go about fixing this.

The intention is that serve be used by setting your config.xml start page to your server,
not by loading the page up in a desktop browser. Desktop browser is what cordova-browser is
supposed to be about. Maybe we should warn based on user-agent?

> The docs say it should work, and users will trust the CLI documentation that they can
"cordova serve" and test with Android. This is especially problematic as it works fine with
iOS. If there is not a fix planned for this, then the CLI should clearly warn folks (especially
since the bug causes Chrome to lock up pretty fiercely) and I'd even suggest that the code
behind serve specifically block a call to /adroid/www. Or even better, return a simple static
message saying it is not supported.
> Basically my problem is that users have no way of knowing this isn't working, and until
a proper fix/alternative exists, we should be more proactive about letting the user know
