Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9887) Windows platform file plugin does not define standard cordova.file.* paths
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2015 01:24:27 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-9887:

Github user ghenry22 commented on the pull request:
    CB-9020 does say they are targeting WP 8.1 which uses the new windows platform so this
PR would also resolve CB-9020.
    CB8257 seems to refer specifically to the wp8 platform which uses different native code.
Although I thought that wp8 support was deprecated so perhaps that could be closed with a
will not fix deprecated and advice to update to target WP8.1 to resolve the issue?
    Regarding the path changes you mentioned you're probably right, or maybe it should be
ms-appx-web?  I'll do a bit of reading and update the PR if necessary.

> 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.
