> When I include a plugin in {{config.xml}}, and the plugin declares a {{<preference>}},
but the {{config.xml}} doesn't supply a corresponding {{<variable>}}, {{cordova prepare}}
doesn't show an error message.
> I started with a new project, with no plugins or platforms. Then I added specific {{<engine>}}
versions to config.xml. Finally I added a {{<plugin>}} whose {{plugin.xml}} file declares
a variable {{<preference name="URL_SCHEME" />}}. But I don't supply the required {{<variable>}}:
> {code}
>     <engine name="ios" spec="~4.1.0" />
>     <engine name="android" spec="~5.1.1" />
>     <plugin name="cordova-plugin-whitelist" spec="1" />
>     <plugin name="cordova-plugin-customurlscheme" spec="~4.1.5" />
> {code}
> When I run {{cordova prepare}}, it says:
> {code}
> Copying plugin "/Users/someone/.npm/cordova-plugin-customurlscheme/4.1.5/package" =>
> {code}
> but it doesn't actually copy the plugin there. Nor does it make any changes to either
platform's {{config.xml}} file, or to any other config files.
> On the other hand, if I try to manually install the plugin using {{cordova plugin add
cordova-plugin-customurlscheme}}, it shows me the appropriate error message:
> {code}
> Error: Variable(s) missing (use: --variable URL_SCHEME=value).
> {code}
> Side note: it seems to be repeating certain steps for every plugin installed. For example,
it repeats:
> {code}
> Wrote out Android application name to "CordovaTest"
> Wrote out Android package name to "com.test.cordovatest"
> {code}
