Workflow question: iOS/Android project
2014-09-23 20:54:55 GMT
Probably the #1 selling point of Cordova/PhoneGap is the ease of creating a cross-platform app, right? So, I have my Cordova apps that I am creating for iOS and Android. For versioning, I have set up a Git repository on my Windows laptop (on which I'm doing the Android work) and a repository on my Mac (on which I'm doing the iOS work).
Yes, I know I could build both iOS and Android apps on the Mac. Often, I don't have easy access to it, and I could leave it turned on and remotely connect to it to do my work, but I like not having to be online to get work done. :)
Anyhow, I generally find myself working on the Android side first, committing my changes to the repository, pulling them from the repository on the laptop to the repository on the Mac, and rebuilding.
The platforms/ directory is NOT included in the repository at the moment. platforms/ and all of its subdirectories are excluded by a single entry in .gitignore in the root directory of my project. I want to change that. I have some changes to my Android manifest that I want to be versioned, and I'm almost 100% sure I will have some minor tweaks to one or more of the iOS plist files that I will want to include in the repository. So....
"platforms/" is obviously too broad an entry, but there are still files I won't want to include in the repository. For Android, I'm thinking I want to exclude:
Not sure if I need to include these:
And I'm not sure about these Eclipse config files; are they updated when you run "cordova build android"?
And to be honest, I'm not sure what I'd need to exclude/include on the iOS side. Need some advice here :)
For documentation purposes, if anyone has answers/advice for ANY of the platforms supported by Cordova, it'd be awesome if you replied! But I'm specifically looking for advice re. iOS and Android.
