Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-13433) cordova.js not being packaging during cordova build --release
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2017 08:12:00 GMT
Frédéric Camblor created CB-13433:

             Summary: cordova.js not being packaging during cordova build --release
                 Key: CB-13433
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-cli
    Affects Versions: 6.5.0
         Environment: cordova-cli 6.5.0
cordova-android 6.2.3
cordova-ios 4.5.2 (using as cordova-ios@4.5.2
is not publicly available in npm yet) .. anyway, I don't think this is relevant as I have
the same issue on android builds
            Reporter: Frédéric Camblor

I'm building an ios & android application for some time now (~2 years) and I don't understand
why, on my latest release, my production (--device --release) build doesn't embed cordova.js
file anymore where as non-production build (--debug) does.
I can confirm this with an alert(window.cordova) which shows "undefined" at startup and after
a ~30s delay (to make sure cordova is not bootstrapped after a deviceReady is fired)

It sounds like a bug on my side, however I can't really know how to confirm that as I don't
have a lot of knowledge on cordova building process internals.

What I can tell so far :
- cordova.js is currently not packaged on both android and ios as soon as I `cordova build
--device --release ios|android`
- cordova.js is currently packaged on both android and ios as soon as I `cordova build --debug
- In my latest release, 2 monthes ago (August 17th), `cordova build --device --release ios|android`
was working perfectly fine. Noticeable changes since then were :
-- package.json : I removed ios-deploy@1.9.0 dependency & added xml2js@0.4.19
-- config.xml : I upgraded cordova-plugin-splashscreen@~3.2.2 => cordova-plugin-splashscreen@4.0.3
& cordova-ios@4.1.1 => cordova-ios@ &
added 2 new plugins (cordova-plugin-request-location-accuracy and cordova-android-support-gradle-release)
-- my build process (grunt-based) didn't changed for 6 monthes
-- I made a change un July, so "integrated" into my latest *working* release which was to
include cordova.js file inside my main index.html page in the end of the <head> tag,
and before any other js script (my other js scripts are loaded in the end of the <body>

When I look for cordova.js file in platforms/ directory, it show me :
> find platforms -name cordova.js
platforms/ios/<MY APP NAME>.xcarchive/Products/Applications/<MY APP NAME>.app/www/cordova.js

If someone has any hint for debugging this, it would be very kind.
