Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8250) special characters in config.xml
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2015 01:59:40 GMT


Julian Frumar commented on CB-8250:

I'm getting hit by this too. I have to edit strings.xml and add a backslash.

If this project was on github, I'd add a pull request.

> In the config.xml, when you have an app name containing a special character (in my case
a single quote, or an apostropher) it has to be escaped to work on android, but it shouldn't
on iOS. So I had to change the name of the app according to the platform I was trying to build:
> <name>My app isn\'t that bad</name> on android
> and
> <name>My app isn't that bad</name> on ios
> this kind of job shoud be done by the cordova platform add command
