Intel XDK with Microsoft Project Ace

Hi guys,

Has anyone used Microsoft Ace with their projects in XDK yet? I need some help. I installed the Plugin, but am not sure how to reference it in HTML (as they only advise the CLI instructions) and thus am struggling to use it.

Can anyone help?

Cheers

Nick

Nick -- what are the CLI instructions? That would help to understand if this is something that can be duplicated outside the CLI.

Hey Paul,

Installation via CLI - 

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-ace

Else have a look at: https://github.com/microsoft/ace

Please let me know if you can get this working, with examples working on your device. Mine doesn't even want to build. Hoping I haven't messed up the config file or something. I can attach the project zip if you wish.

You're aware that this plugin is no longer supported by Microsoft... given the complexity of that plugin it may easily break with newer versions of the Cordova framework.

Add a third-party plugin your your XDK mobile project is described in this doc page > https://software.intel.com/en-us/xdk/docs/add-manage-project-plugins <

That plugin includes a "hook script" which is something that is NOT supported by PhoneGap Build > https://github.com/Microsoft/ace/blob/master/plugin.xml#L14 < meaning that you MUST build your app using Cordova CLI if you want to use this plugin.

Yip, am aware of that, was hoping I could still use it though.

 

Thanks so much for the feedback, Paul! :)
