[editing in progress]
I've started an experimental refactor of the Cordova CLI. This is to improve the overall code quality, and solve issues which face projects which consume Cordova CLI as a dependency.
The refactor will drastically change how the CLI operates internally, but will be backwards compatible and nonbreaking.
- improve project stability when used as a cli
- improve project stability when consumed as an api
- improve modularization of code
- non breaking
while initially looking more complex, this architecture forces us to eat our own dog food: we create an api, then expose it as a cli.
- Current State
- cli/api functionality is jumbled together
- cannot include api functionality without pulling in cli as well (or individually require'ing files)
- difficult to diagnose simple bugs due to poor modularization
- Future State
- improved stability
- improved contributor sanity (easier to workwith)
- consume our own product (the api) insuring that releases are more stable
- bugs related to i/o can be isolated from core functionality without having to maintain complex tests
