Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8577) 'cordova plugin add <plugin> --save' should save variables into config.xml
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2015 00:31:04 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-8577:

Github user omefire commented on the pull request:
    Fixing it in Config.getFeature(id) would mean that we would have to differentiate between
`<param>` types : variables and non-variables. I think that could be unecessarily complex,
require special logic and create more subtle bugs. So, I'm in favor on fixing the syntax itself.

> When adding a plugin with the --save/autosave option on, the variables (if any is passed)
should be saved into config.xml so that the plugin can be auto-restored successfully later
during 'prepare' or 'build' operation.
> For example:
> - cordova create hello com.omefire.hello Hello
> - cd hello
> - cordova plugin add com.phonegap.plugins.facebookconnect --variable APP_ID="my-app-id"
--variable APP_NAME="my-app-name" --save => results in facebook plugin added to config.xml
> - cordova prepare android => results in an error message :
> " Installing "com.phonegap.plugins.facebookconnect" for android
> Failed to install 'com.phonegap.plugins.facebookconnect':Error: Variable(s) missing:
> This issue is due to the fact that 'cordova plugin add <plugin> --save' save variables
in config.xml using the <param> tag instead of the <variable> tag.
> N.B: on 'cordova prepare <platform>', the plugins are restored from config.xml
if they are not yet installed.
