Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (CB-304) Cordova's require/define can't be used with Dojo's require/define
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 02:36:23 GMT
I think with some builder sugaring magic we can have the best of both worlds.

Ie.. Cordova.require for native and require for everyone else.

All the modules should be fine with require, the only place we would need to update would
be the injection of the bootstrap.js file.

Subject: [jira] [Commented] (CB-304) Cordova's require/define can't be used
 with Dojo's require/define


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-304:

Having to hang {{require}} off of {{Cordova}} is believable for the reason you mention.

I will note, again, that we need to make sure folks don't start using that {{require()}} instead
of the {{require()}} they are passed (if they're in a module), as that won't resolve relative
module ids correctly (when we implement that).

So, I'd recommend we not actually call it {{require}} there.  {{rootRequire}}, {{requireRoot}},
{{baseRequire}}, etc come to mind as alternatives.

> I was targeting Android and used Phonegap 1.2.0 in combination with Dojo 1.7 which worked
fine. Now I switched to Phonegap 1.5.0 and found a severe problem. The new module system in
Phonegap 1.5.0 uses global functions "define" and "require". Dojo 1.7 does the same for its
own module system. Hence, whatever is loaded first, breaks the other one.

compatible with Dojo's?
