Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9887) Windows platform file plugin does not define standard cordova.file.* paths
Date Tue, 03 Nov 2015 02:22:27 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-9887:

Github user ghenry22 commented on the pull request:
    my understanding is that applicationStorageDirectory is a bit redundant.  It is the same
as the applicationDirectory but has a note that you can change to the specific subdirectories
that might have write access (ie /local is the same as where dataDirectory already points).
    I can add it in case it's useful to someone purely for compatibility though.

> On android and ios the file plugin defines some standard paths of the form "cordova.file.*"
(such as cordova.file.dataDirectory) which are used as a simple and consistent way to access
different types of storage.
> On the windows platform none of these paths are defined and attempts to query cordova.file.*
returns undefined.
> This means that if you want to port an app from ios or android to the windows platform
it will fail to launch due to these paths not being defined.
> Need to update the windows platform code to define the available file systems for the
windows platform.
