Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6133) Expose the Command-Line to Cordova
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 13:19:21 GMT


JQM Developer commented on CB-6133:

Sure. So, I would like to create a desktop utility. The utility would have a user interface.
When the user clicks a button it might run a powershell script for example. While I understand
that Cordova wasn't really created for that. I think as the Android and Windows models mature,
it would be valuable to provide some sort of abstracted interop to go beyond the sandbox,
if a) the user was permitted to do so and b) the user permitted the app to do so.

I personally believe this will grow in importance as node continues to emerge. If Cordova
doesn't do it, the Node WebKit might.

> Right now, Cordova seems limited to apps that run within a sandbox. However, some environments
provide a way to interact with the underlying operating system.For instance, it would be nice
if I could run a script against the local machine. 
> This would require elevated privelages, which the user would need to accept. However,
it would open the door for more automation.
