Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-888) migrate to config.xml
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2012 20:31:43 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-888:

There are a lot of questions to answer for this issue. Off the top of my head:

- what about declarative app data like author, title, description? Does the use of config.xml
tie into the command line tooling, to specify this kind of top-level app information at the
time of project creation?
- how do we tie in <feature> elements to phonegap core APIs, or more generally, to arbitrary
- splash screen and icons are part of config.xml.. do we want to support that right out of
the gate? some platforms employ a splash screen plugin to do this. Does this mean all config.xml's
will need to add a <feature> element to enable access to the splash screen plugin?

Lots of these questions have already been answered by phonegap-build. Lots of prior work there.

I think a wiki page is in order to map out what features that config.xml offers are already
available in cordova and how it relates to config.xml. This way we can separate out the low-hanging
fruit as easy tasks, and link up other issues to features that are not yet available (plugin
spec + installation, full command-line tooling, etc).
