Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-7569) Offline Plugin Add for CLI
Date Sun, 26 Oct 2014 03:32:35 GMT


Gorkem ERCAN commented on CB-7569:

plugman already caches the plugins that are loaded from the plugin registry. Unless explicitly
configured they should be under $HOME/.plugman/cache. It actually uses npm to load plugins
from registry.  

At least for me it installs the cached copy, it does a few http calls and waits for them to
timeout so it takes a bit longer. If this request is specifically for installing plugins from
registry, I do not think there is anything else to do here.

for an internet connection.  Which means that I get an error trying to do cordova plugin add
____ because it can't fetch it from the internet.  What would be cool is if the CLI didn't
fail on internet connection IF the user already has a separate project that has that same
plugin installed.  For example, suppose I'm demoing camera and the internet is down.  But
I happen to have already installed the camera plugin for another project.  Rather than fail,
the system will copy the camera plugin from the other project and use that.  Of course a nice
message to the user "we're borrowing from project X because the internet was down" would be
