Subject Re: [ATTN MENTOR] Re: DISCUSS: Ripple as a sub-project of Cordova
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 00:12:06 GMT
I'm happy with Ripple existing as a standalone or sub-project. In either
case, Apache Cordova will be able to consume and commit back to the project.

It's no secret that the purpose of Apache Cordova is to accelerate the Web
as a first-class application platform. As browsers mature and operating
systems embrace the Web, Apache Cordova can gradually step-aside. However,
that doesn't mean that the project will die off as browsers and operating
systems begin to offer the Web access to more APIs. Apache Cordova is a
source of app development education, best practices, and tools. Tools for
developing, packaging, and debugging Web applications across the wide range
of platforms. This is where projects such as Weinre and Ripple become
extremely valuable. They don't necessarily need to be under the Cordova
project, but they need to be accessible to the project and its community.
