Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1156) Android app creation is broken in several ways!
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2012 12:39:34 GMT


Olivier Louvignes commented on CB-1156:

I was referring to the command script as it was a pain to import (does not have a correct
name provided & use the package name instead that would require to refactor the name),
it would not build at all (had some errors in the manifest), was missing (at the time) a proper
fix for 4.0 rotation, did not provide any idea on how to setup a splashscreen. That was the
kind of pain I was referring to, using the cli command (not from scrash from Eclipse). It
just took me around 1H to make it work will it was instant on iOS. That was why I was a bit
disappointed, anyway if a-hour search/work before starting to hack is easy enough to you.
I won't fight it! I guess I might have special needs (splashScreen & readable code) that
does not apply to anyone out there. I'll keep these changes in my fork.

Thank you for your time. You can close this.

> The experience of starting a new Android app is just really bad.
> When we use the bin/create script there is a lot of things missing :
> -> SplashScreen?!
> I just can't understand why this is lacking. It is an obvious need & everyone has
to waste time figuring out how to make it work by themselves
> -> MacOSX is broken
> Either using latest Lion or any version with Macports + GNUTools (replacing deprecated
versions bundled with OSX for licensing issues - common for most developers).
> -> The XML is missing required keys (targetSDKpath) & having invalid stuff inside
it (xLargeScreen).
> -> Most files are badly indented. Does not respect the Google guidelines for JAVA.
> I've done most of the fixing myself:
> You can find this (work in progress) there :

> I'm quite disappointed on how you release a 2.0 without taking the hour needed to clean
this mess. Instead a few hundred people will encounter the same issues & have a bad idea
on Cordova/Phonegap.
