Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10063) cordova-cli 5.4.0 bug with PList creation
Date Mon, 23 Nov 2015 13:45:10 GMT
Gregor created CB-10063:

             Summary: cordova-cli 5.4.0 bug with PList creation
                 Key: CB-10063
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI, CordovaLib
    Affects Versions: 5.4.0
            Reporter: Gregor

Our config.xml has this part in:

    <platform name="ios">
      <!-- ios restrictions -->
      <preference name="target-device" value="universal" />
      <config-file target="*-Info.plist" parent="UISupportedInterfaceOrientations">

      <config-file target="*-Info.plist" parent="UISupportedInterfaceOrientations~ipad">

With Cordova 5.4.0 installed, PList gets generated, but there is no part with orientation
options in. Removing 5.4.0 and installing 5.3.3, everything functions as should. 

Looking at update_platform_config.js hook and echoing this line out 
fs.writeFileSync(targetFile, tempInfoPlist, 'utf-8');

You will see in console, the part with orientation is in. Also, if you save this exact same
string into some new generic file, it will be successfully saved. However, the original platforms/ios/myapp/myapp.plist
file won't include the orientation part.

This is a serious bug and a huge issue for us. Going to buggy 5.3.3 is a huge step down for
us, and not having this orientation in 5.4.0 is another.

I don't know if there's actually anyone alive here, but I surely hope, someone will someday
found this ticket and say "hey.. look.. we aren't the only ones that have the problem with
the orientation thing on ios"
