Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11965) Remove WinJS dependency
Date Wed, 14 Feb 2018 13:12:00 GMT


Jan Piotrowski (Sujan) commented on CB-11965:

Yes, Win10 referred to UWP, as `cordova-windows` is the base for both Windows 8.1 and Windows
Phone 8.1 - and also Windows 10 UWP apps.

The UWP code also contains mentions to WinJS (or at least the tooling used to create and fill
them), so I was just curious to understand what your suggestion would apply to.

My current understanding: UWP still uses it for smaller things via npm (and copies it to `www`),
8.1 uses it via SDK.

> Remove WinJS dependency

>                 Key: CB-11965
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: cordova-windows
>            Reporter: Philipp Kursawe
>            Priority: Minor
> As far as I can see cordova uses WinJS only for managing life-cycle events, which can
be easily handled without WinJS using native WinRT.
> I propose to get rid of the (discontinued) WinJS library dependency to reduce package
deploy size and runtime overhead.
