Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-13484) Allow removing a whole XML element using <config-file>
Date Mon, 23 Oct 2017 10:55:00 GMT
Ibrahim M. Ghazal created CB-13484:

             Summary: Allow removing a whole XML element using <config-file>
                 Key: CB-13484
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: cordova-common
    Affects Versions: 2.1.1
            Reporter: Ibrahim M. Ghazal

Currently, {{<config-file>}} can only *add* an XML element to a config file, but not
*remove* an element. {{<edit-config>}} can remove attributes from an element, but not
whole elements.

I'd like the ability to remove elements by adding something to {{config.xml}} instead of writing
a hook.

This is useful because some plugins include extra permissions which are not always needed
(For example, {{cordova-plugin-file}} adds the {{WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE}} permission, but
not all apps that include {{cordova-plugin-file}} will actually write outside their data directory).

Example syntax:
<config-file mode="remove" parent="/manifest" target="AndroidManifest.xml" xmlns:android="">
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
(Note the {{mode="remove"}}, the default if absent should be "add")
