Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-298) DEPRECATE "plugins" and "PhoneGap" global objects in JavaScript implementation
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2012 19:16:33 GMT


Patrick Mueller commented on CB-298:

It would be nice to print a single message out for each "deprecated" thing that was accessed,
but only the first time the "deprecated" thing is called, lest folks deal with LOTS of duplicate

Still not clear to me what our story is for plugins though.  I sense we want to have folks
access plugins via {{require()}}.  Perhaps the first thing we should do is make sure the standard
plugins actually work that way.  Eg, what does {{require("plugins/camera")}} (or whatever
we decide to call the camera plugin's module) return?  Are the {{Camera}} object and the {{}}
object somehow smushed together?
