Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-8597) Change cordova-lib create.js to import config.xml of default application
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2015 19:21:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-8597?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Michal Mocny updated CB-8597:
-----------------------------
    Description: 
Right now, when creating a new project with CLI, we will lazy_load the hello world application
to load its www/.  We will not, however, load its config.xml -- we always use the cordova-lib
default.

This is needlessly complex (aka, special code paths, requires lazy_loading when everything
else has moved to npm), given that create already supports `--copy-from` which imports both
www/ and config.xml (and hooks and merges).

I think we should:
- Add a config.xml to app hello world.
- Remove many of the special cases in cordova-lib create(), and always just expect a path
to import, aka always use the --copy-from/--link-to logic.
- Change cordova-cli to call create() with a path to app hello world if --copy-from/--link-to
are not in cli args.
- Publish app hello world to npm and add it to cordova-cli dependencies.

Note: some users use --copy-from directly to a www/, which has no config.xml.  We should still
support that use case, either by leaving the cordova-lib config.xml template, or better yet,
by using the app hello world config.xml for this use case.
