             Summary: create new core plugin to control screen orientation
                 Key: CB-9528
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9528
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugins
            Reporter: Tony Homer
            Assignee: Tony Homer


Create a new core Cordova plugin that enables the user to dynamically control the orientation
of their app.
Tentatively base interface on [the screen-orientation spec| http://www.w3.org/TR/screen-orientation/].

There is a precedent for this behavior being supported as part of Cordova.
Previously iOS supported a non-standard approach to controlling the orientation dynamically
(see last entry in [this section of the 5.1.1 docs|http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/5.1.1/config_ref_index.md.html#The%20config.xml%20File_multi_platform_preferences]).
Recent platform changes made the iOS-specific approach untenable, but it's removal prompted
a discussion about enabling this as a cross-platform feature via a new core plugin.
See related discussion in CB-8047.
