Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-11136) InAppBrowser fails to close with WKWebView OAuth
Date Thu, 21 Apr 2016 19:01:25 GMT
Geordie Jay created CB-11136:

             Summary: InAppBrowser fails to close with WKWebView OAuth 
                 Key: CB-11136
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS, Plugin InAppBrowser, Plugin WKWebViewEngine
    Affects Versions: 4.1.0
         Environment: iOS 8+ with WKWebView
            Reporter: Geordie Jay

Launching InAppBrowser from Cordova iOS Platform 4+ with its WKWebView for OAuth (e.g. Facebook
or Google login) fails to close as it should.

The reason is that the entire WKWebView thread seems to pause when another view controller
is presented. This can be confirmed by inspecting the WKWebView session in Safari, running
`'')` and then trying to enter another command into that Safari

I made a hacky but working version of this that animated in the InAppBrowser's view manually,
rather than 'presenting' the ViewController in the traditional iOS style. In that instance
the WKWebView thread continues as normal and receives the confirmation to close the other
InAppBrowser when the OAuth process is complete.

Maybe there is a better way around this, but at the moment this is a big usability fail for
all WKWebView users.

What do you all think, is the 'not-actually-presenting' way of presenting the InAppBrowser
acceptable? Would be happy to make a pull request along these lines if it is.
