Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-10326) don't copy resource-file files at plugin install time
Date Fri, 15 Jan 2016 17:46:39 GMT


Nikhil Khandelwal commented on CB-10326:

You can clone cordova-windows from GitHub to a local directory e.g. c:\cordova-windows  and
use cordova platform add c:\cordova-windows to test out your code.
[~sgrebnov] Who knows about this area and implemented "lib-file" .

> I just came across the newly added resource-file support for phonegap for windows. I've
tried to use it for adding native dlls dependencies to the application. I couldn't completely
get it to work with the current version.
> I'd like to propose a small change which would make the resource-file tag more powerful
and shouldn't impact existing users:
> Judging from the source code, the file is copied to the target when the plugin is installed.
I'd propose not to copy to the target but to point the include parameter to the existing file.
This allows use-cases where a different .dll has to be copied based on the architecture of
the project, .e.g.
> <resource-file src="x86/foo.dll" arch="x86" />
> <resource-file src="arm/foo.dll" arch="arm" />
> <resource-file src="x64/foo.dll" arch="x64" />
> This should generate code like this for each resource-file entry:
>     <ItemGroup>
>         <Content Condition="'$(Platform)'=='x86'" Include="x86/foo.dll">
>             <Link>foo.dll</Link>
>             <CopyToOutputDirectory>Always</CopyToOutputDirectory>
>         </Content>
>     </ItemGroup>
