Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-10326) don't copy resource-file files at plugin install time
Date Tue, 12 Jan 2016 15:57:40 GMT
Marco Biasini created CB-10326:

             Summary: don't copy resource-file files at plugin install time
                 Key: CB-10326
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugman, Windows
            Reporter: Marco Biasini

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:

        <Content Condition="'$(Platform)'=='x86'" Include="x86/foo.dll">
