Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1091) Installer: remove use of PackageMaker for Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8)
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2012 00:47:33 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-1091:

Hi Fil,
I like the way you did it - I assume a dev will extract the source to a permanent location,
run "make install" to install the variables etc, correct? This way if we have versioned installs
(say through homebrew), we just run "make install" in the current versioned folder to set
the right version.

If an app uses a specific version, they can just modify their $(CORDOVALIB) variable in their
CordovaBuildSettings.xcconfig to point to the right one (or a tool could do it).

> This is less of a Cordova concern since we ship the source, but our makefile should not
create a proprietary installer but just install what is needed (no one reads the notices in
the installer anyway!)
> Since we are already requiring devs to use the command line to create new projects, requiring
them to run an install script is not a problem.
