Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-285) Add property returning root path of PhoneGap files
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 20:19:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-285?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13219502#comment-13219502

Joe Bowser commented on CB-285:
-------------------------------

Right (I had to check to make sure that this was the case, since it seems wrong) but that's
only on Android, and that's because we add a level of abstraction to get access to the Android
assets.  So instead of the user unzipping the MP3, we do it for them.  This sounds like it's
an argument for abstracting the filesystem, since this is an abstraction of what is essentially
the inside of an APK.

> There needs to be a property in PhoneGap that returns the root path to the general files
added to the PhoneGap project (i.e. the directory index.html is in).  For example, if I add
'music.mp3' to my project, in Android it will be located in:
> /android_asset/www/music.mp3
> On iOS after being built with PhoneGap Build it will be located in some path like this:
> /var/mobile/Applications/<app_ID>/<name>.app/www/music.mp3
> However, there does not appear to be a programmatic way to determine both <app_ID>
and <name>.app.
> This has two side effects:
> 1. Paths to audio for Media must be hard-coded separately depending on the platform,
which is inconvenient.
> 2. Paths to audio for Media cannot be known if developing a framework that uses PhoneGap.
 Since a framework does not know the App ID or name in advance, it's impossible for the framework
to determine the correct path.
> This is actively blocking audio from working on iOS in PhoneGap projects exported by
Construct 2 (www.scirra.com), a HTML5 game creator.  Also, it seems like kind of an important
function to make available anyway, since hard-coding paths for each platform is a pain.
