Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8659) iOS Plugins: Cordova-iOS 4.0.0 compatibility
Date Sat, 14 Mar 2015 17:21:38 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-8659:

Yes, UIWebView -- for now anyway. I think creation of the IAB's webview should be delegated
to the WebViewEngine. There's a lot of work to abstract this out:

1. We'll have to create our own delegate (CDVWebEngineNavigationDelegate) that abstracts UIWebViewDelegate
and WKNavigationDelegate. IAB will use that and set it on the CDVWebViewEngine. The CDVWebViewEngine
will map this to the appropriate internal delegate.
2. CDVInAppBrowserOptions will no longer make sense for WKWebView, since the options currently
map to UIWebView only. We'll have to map the options to their equivalents (if any) on the
WKWebViewEngine. Fortunately there is already a way to update settings on the CDVWKWebViewEngine
3. The CDVWKWebViewEngine should provide a way to create a WebView (UIView) in its interface.
This way we don't need to know the implementation details or delegates.

Anyways -- this is a lot of work, but it's not critical for 4.0.x release. I'll create a new
issue for this, and pull in the above PR on Monday if there are no more comments regarding

> iOS Plugins need to stop using initWithWebView:
