Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

This article:

https://github.com/crosswalk-project/cr ... oject-Lite

So, I'm wondering @imaffett and @IntelRobert if Intel XDK is going to support this version of crosswalk?

Is this forgotten?

I just tryed to export my Construct 2 as a normal HTML5 and then use Intel XDK to add crosswalk lite but not success....

I tryed to add it throught this plugin:
https://github.com/crosswalk-project/co ... lk-webview
and added this variable: --variable XWALK_MODE="lite"

Image

but then I got this error:
Image

Building a Cordova 6.2.0 application.
Using platform cordova-android 5.1.1.
The application name is "test"
The package name is "not.yet.specified"
Preference android-signed set to true. Application will be signed.
Using Crosswalk Embedded 19
Error: Plugin Crosswalk WebView Engine cannot be added. The plugin contains Gradle scripts.
Plugin "cordova-plugin-whitelist" (1.2.2) installed.

Anyone knows how I can use crosswalk lite?

The difference is pretty significant: https://crosswalk-project.org/documenta ... _lite.html
And a normal Cordova app has arround 5MB ....

Apparently as of now changing the Crosswalk Runtime to "shared" makes apps tiny again.... (from 26MB to 3.3MB) (android .apk)
But...... It has a bad user experience..... because it shows this pop up:

and when Crosswalk individually updates it can break your app....
