    Is there a place to view what plugins require what permissions?

     

    Alternatively is there a way to REMOVE some permissions from the default installer?

     

    For example, I do not need the ability to read the clipboard, GPS, camera, just to name a few but I would still like Felgo to mostly handle permissions otherwise.

     

    My app got blasted by users sketched out as to why it needed all these extra permissions and rightfully so.

    Hi,

    there is no overview about all permissions, but some items of plugins that require special permissions do mention them in the documentation.

    You can remove the automatic permission line from the manifest file and manually add your own. We’ll discuss if it makes sense to create such an overview.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Thank you for your informative reply, I believe it does make sense to provide an overview as I ran into issues where users were skeptical of my apps access to reading clipboards, gps etc….at the same time, checking the compiled android manifest is a garbage mess and it’s hard to sort what plugin or library is using what, it becomes a goose chase removing the automatic integration and then manually trying to figure out what permissions are needed for X plugin or X library..

     

     

     

    Also unrelated but your facebook SDK links still show your old brand name and are not updated
