Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-1013) Refactor all platform's device plugin into a common device plugin
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2012 16:10:35 GMT
Filip Maj created CB-1013:

             Summary: Refactor all platform's device plugin into a common device plugin
                 Key: CB-1013
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Android, Bada, BlackBerry, CordovaJS, iOS, WP7
    Affects Versions: 1.9.0
            Reporter: Filip Maj
            Assignee: Filip Maj
             Fix For: 2.0.0

Almost all of the implementations' device plugin does the same thing:

1. On construction, attach to the CordovaReady internal event
2. Inside this event, fire off {{exec}} to a "device" service requesting the "getDeviceInfo"
3. When that info becomes available, assign the device information to the device plugin properties
and fire off the {{CordovaInfoReady}} event.

The one black sheep in this approach is iOS. iOS instead has the native framework directly
call the device plugin's {{setInfo}} method (essentially circumventing {{exec}}). This is
a problem for emulation layers such as Ripple, where {{exec}} is the abstraction/hook that
needs to be utilized.

May need to implement a few platform-specific merge plugins for device, but the core pattern
exists in the common one.
