Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10034) Plugins iOS Custom Frameworks are added to "Embedded Binaries" XCode project section by default
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2015 16:53:11 GMT
Roberto Andrade created CB-10034:

             Summary: Plugins iOS Custom Frameworks are added to "Embedded Binaries" XCode
project section by default
                 Key: CB-10034
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CordovaLib
    Affects Versions: 5.4.0, 5.3.3
         Environment: OSX developing for iOS
            Reporter: Roberto Andrade

Since CB-9517 was merged and released in 5.3.0 it seems to have changed the approach to adding
a "custom framework" dependency declared in {{plugin.xml}} with the {{<framework custom="true"/>}}
directive into the xcode project, as per the [following change|].

It assumes all frameworks are "embeddable", which is not true for a great chunk of frameworks
out there that have not being built with the new iOS 8/XCode 6 Cocoa Framework architecture.
Most of the frameworks I use (developed prior to Apple coming up with the "official" iOS 8
Framework utilities and Xcode project options) use community provided [iOS-Universal-Framework|],
which once an artifact generated using that project template gets added to the "embedded binaries"
section of a depending app (ie: Cordova app), Xcode has issues doing its thing because they
were not built with the iOS 8 framework magic in it.

I suggest that the new behavior be the default (ie: add it to the embedded binaries section)
but provide an option when declaring the framework dependency in `plugin.xml` so that we can
override the behavior and specify whether or not we want it to the embedded (at that point
the old <=5.2.0 behavior should take over, ie: just add it to the list of framework dependencies
but not the the embedded binaries section of the project), may I suggest:

{{<framework custom="true" embed="false"/>}}

as the optional override (being assumed as {{true}} by default)?
