Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9528) create new core plugin to control screen orientation
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:20:13 GMT


Tony Homer commented on CB-9528:

A quick update - last week I found that a (non-core) plugin like the one proposed here already

Instead of starting from scratch, I'm going to contribute to this one.
There are a lot of open issues, but I'm in contact with the author and he is interested in
taking PRs to fix the open issues.
I submitted [a PR|]
last week to fix "rotate on lock" for iOS.
I'll be submitting more PRs to fix other issues, add tests, possibly updates the spec, etc.
I intend to update this JIRA to align it with this effort.

> Create a new core Cordova plugin that enables the user to dynamically control the orientation
of their app.
> Tentatively base interface on [the screen-orientation spec|].
> There is a precedent for this behavior being supported as part of Cordova.
> Previously iOS supported a non-standard approach to controlling the orientation dynamically
(see last entry in [this section of the 5.1.1 docs|]).
> Recent platform changes made the iOS-specific approach untenable, but it's removal prompted
a discussion about enabling this as a cross-platform feature via a new core plugin.
> See related discussion in CB-8047.
