Using C3 build service with a non-importable C2 project

Post » Thu May 18, 2017 6:39 pm

@ashley or @tom

In the future would it be possible to use the C3 build service with non-C3 projects?

Right now both of my large (multi-year) C2 projects rely on a plugin that will probably never be ported to C3. I would like to subscribe to C3 and use the new C3 build service for my C2 projects. I can't find any way to do this. Is it possible? If not, is it on the roadmap?

Yes, our original announcement covered our intent to support this.

Sorry about that! I don't know how I missed it at the bottom of the announcement.

I tried importing the project into C3, but no luck because of the missing plugins. I can't see any options from the main menu that would allow me to try it. Is there currently a way to test the build service with my C2 project?

My interpretation of the linked blog post is that you would export from C2 for Cordova? the same as if you were going to build with XDK or Cocoon.
Then in the new build service I guess you will import the project.
I could be wrong but I don't think you will need the plugins to be ported to C3 in this case because you're not opening the project in C3 to edit it.

Is that right @Ashley ?

The build service currently only supports C3 projects. We're going to think about adding a different way to support C2 projects in future.
