Instructions to set up Sugar Cordova

The procedure below is for GNU/Linux (must run for Mac OS too)

Setting up Cordova development environment

Pre-Requirements: must have node and npm installed

  1. Git clone : https://github.com/apache/cordova-cli , https://github.com/apache/cordova-lib and https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugman in a directory
  2. Go inside cordova-lib, you'll find another cordova-lib inside it, issue the command npm install, npm link inside it.
  3. Now cd to cordova-cli, and issue npm install in it then issue npm link cordova-lib
  4. cd to cordova-plugman, and repeat the steps for cordova-cli here - ( issuing npm install - same way to correct if any error , issue npm link cordova-lib)

Addition for setting up the Sugar platform

1. Add the following in cordova-cli/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/cordova/platforms.js [Note the s in platforms, it differentiates from platform.js] :

'sugar':{
 parser: './metadata/sugar_parser',
 url : 'https://github.com/puneetgkaur/sugar-cordova.git',
 version: '3.5.0'
 }

2. Add the following to cordova-cli/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/plugman/platforms.js :

'sugar': require('./platforms/sugar')

3. Add the sugar_parser.js to cordova-cli/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/cordova/metadata from :

https://github.com/puneetgkaur/cordova-lib/blob/master/src/cordova/metadata/sugar_parser.js

4. Add sugar.js to cordova-cli/node_modules/cordova-lib/src/plugman/platforms

https://github.com/puneetgkaur/cordova-lib/blob/master/src/plugman/platforms/sugar.js

5. Unzip and add the sugar directory to home/.cordova/lib

Run and Check

  1. Go to cordova-cli/bin and run the command,
    ./cordova create new_project
  2. cd to the new_project directory created inside the bin folder
    There run the command,
    .././cordova platform add sugar
  3. Then to build, run
    .././cordova build sugar

The .xo generated would be present in cordova-cli/bin/new_project/platforms/sugar/cordova/HelloCordova.xo

For Microsoft Windows

Setting Cordova CLI and adding Sugar

The setting up of cordova is same (get the nodejs msi to install both node and npm)

​​ ​1. Add the following in cordova-cli\node_modules\cordova-lib\src\cordova\platforms.js [Note the s in platforms, it differentiates from platform] :

'sugar':{
parser: './metadata/sugar_parser',
url : 'https://github.com/puneetgkaur/sugar-cordova.git',
version: '3.5.0'
}

2. Add the following to cordova-cli\node_modules\cordova-lib\src\plugman\platforms.js :

'sugar': require('./platforms/sugar')

3. Add the sugar_parser.js to cordova-cli\node_modules\cordova-lib\src\cordova\metadata

https://github.com/puneetgkaur/cordova-lib/blob/master/src/cordova/metadata/sugar_parser.js

4. Add sugar.js to cordova-cli\node_modules\cordova-lib\src\plugman\platforms

https://github.com/puneetgkaur/cordova-lib/blob/master/src/plugman/platforms/sugar.js

5. Add the sugar directory to C:\Users\<your user name>\.cordova\lib
