Philipp Kursawe commented on CB-11965:

Like Win10 Desktop? WinJS in general is dead. It's only barely maintained. What 
a waste of resources in the end :(

But MS has no intention to further develop any of this in the JS space. They 
fully concentrate on C#/Xamarin. They pretty much abandoned JS as a first class 
Windows app citizen.

For what Cordova does here with the help of WinJS could already back then done 
with plain WinRT. So if by Win10 you mean Windows UWP apps then you could leave 
it as it is, it still works. Or, as this issue intended remove WinJS and go 
with plain WinRT. After all there are not a lot of life-cycle events Cordova 
needs to handle. But maybe you can clarify your question again.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: cordova-windows
>            Reporter: Philipp Kursawe
>            Priority: Minor
> As far as I can see cordova uses WinJS only for managing life-cycle events, 
> which can be easily handled without WinJS using native WinRT.
> I propose to get rid of the (discontinued) WinJS library dependency to reduce 
> package deploy size and runtime overhead.
