#927 feature-request

start and end functions on plugin definition not defaulted

Reported by Scott Downe | March 1st, 2012 @ 04:03 PM | in 1.5

If someone creates a plugin with no start or end function, then trys to call it, it will error.


Popcorn.plugin( "grog", {});

  start: 10,
  end: 15

p.currentTime( 12 ); // this will attempt to call a start function that does not exist

I see a use case in this for people that only want a start or end function, and are not concerned with the other.

A plugin with neither start and end has no use case, though. I am requesting this for people that want one, and not the other.

This is actually easy to fix.

      natives.start = natives.start || natives[ "in" ] || Popcorn.nop;
      natives.end = natives.end || natives[ "out" ] || Popcorn.nop;

Just adding the nop lines.

    A plugin with only start I can imagine. I plugin with only end makes no sense, as does a plugin with no start AND end. I wonder if this is simply a bug that we shouldn't allow?

    I sort of lean toward WONTFIX.
