Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-5137) docs should describe how to build Cordova from Apache dist
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2016 20:25:20 GMT


Jesse MacFadyen resolved CB-5137.
    Resolution: Not A Problem

I believe this is no longer valid.  The 'new' apache way is to get the projects from our npm
releases, or in some cases, github mirrors.
People who are tech savvy enough to want to build from apache git distro/repos would very
likely also be able to figure that out. So the number of people potentially affected here
is near zero, I think.

Please feel free to re-open if you disagree, otherwise, [~cmarcelk] has one less in progress

> The docs seem to assume that Cordova was already downloaded either via npm or from a
PhoneGap distribution or similar. Though the Apache Way is to distribute source code, it isn't
clear to the average consumer in the docs how to get Cordova up and running from either the
source zips on or from the repos at This documentation
should be added, perhaps as a section such as "How to Obtain Cordova" and/or "How to Build
Cordova from Source".
> There may be additional docs needed that describe how to bootstrap the docs (build the
html from the md) if for some reason the user can't get them online at
