Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12668) support arbitrary creation of resources in the Asset Catalog
Date Wed, 10 May 2017 07:55:04 GMT


Dave Alden commented on CB-12668:

I really needed to be able to create custom image asset catalogs for the above plugin, so
I've added functionality to the [cordova-custom-config|]
plugin to do so, until such time as the Cordova CLI itself supports this. 
Documentation here:

>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: cordova-ios

> A handful of plugins* recommend the use of an image/asset out of the Asset Catalog. 
It would be great if we could create those just by setting tags in config.xml, similar to
<icon> and <splash> that then generate the resource in Xcode.
> My specific use case is to add a "back" image to be used by 'cordova-plugin-themeablebrowser'.
 I can do this manually by:
> - opening xCode
> - Click on Project -> Resources -> Image.xcassets
> - Click '+' in the bottom task bar -> New Image Set
> - Rename the new Set 'back'
> - Manually drag and drop 3 images into xcode
> To be clear - I'm not asking that cordova produce different sized images as I believe
that's out of scope.  I just need it to build the new resource in xcode referencing certain
files on disk with tags like:
> <platform name='ios'>
>   <resource name='back' src='my_resources/back@1x.png' target='1x' />
>   <resource name='back' src='my_resources/back@2x.png' target='2x' />
>   <resource name='back' src='my_resources/back@3x.png' target='3x' />
> </platform
> * Example plugins:
> https://github.codifferent m/phonegap/phonegap-plugin-push
> **Bonus!**
> It'd be extra great, since I'm sure some folks want this, if cordova could add sound
files to be used by firebase/push plugins that can leverage those if they exist, but I'm not
sure how those get set up in xcode such that phonegap-plugin-push can use them.
