Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-565) Somehow document how certain objects extend from others in cordova-js
Date Mon, 07 May 2012 18:14:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-565?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13269832#comment-13269832

Filip Maj commented on CB-565:
------------------------------

I suppose Plugin development is a use case (the {{extend}} method is available in the {{cordova/utils}}
JS module, so plugin authors _could_ use it if they wanted to) but it simply applies to our
core APIs.

Not so much an issue as just a point I want to bring up. With us taking a hard look at how
our docs are structured, perhaps these cases of extension should go into the re-thinking of
how our docs should be laid out. Maybe a Java-like doc reference, with a hierarchy, makes
sense? Maybe not...

Do you see value in communicating to our users, "Hey, this object actually EXTENDS from this
object." ?
