Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-12787) cordova@7 plugin add --link is broken
Date Thu, 11 May 2017 10:34:04 GMT
Steve Gill created CB-12787:

             Summary: cordova@7 plugin add --link is broken
                 Key: CB-12787
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-fetch, cordova-lib
    Affects Versions: 7.0.0
            Reporter: Steve Gill

with the change to cordova-fetch for local paths, cordova plugin add SOMELOCALPATH --link
doesn't work anymore. 

The plugin first gets `npm installed` into your cordova project (so it now lives in node_modules),
and then it gets copied into your plugins directory. During the copy to your plugins directory
step, that is when the symlink gets created. So the symlink points to your node_modules/PLUGINDIR
and not the local path to your plugin.

I believe the solution to fixing this would be to `npm link` the plugin instead of `npm install`
when adding it with `--link` flag.
