* This is a utility class that allows us to get the BuildConfig variable, which is required
* for the use of different providers. This is not guaranteed to work, and it's better for this
* to be set in the build step in config.xml

* This needs to be implemented if you wish to use the Camera Plugin or other plugins
* that read the Build Configuration.
* Thanks to Phil@Medtronic and Graham Borland for finding the answer and posting it to
* StackOverflow. This is annoying as hell! However, this method does not work with
* ProGuard, and you should use the config.xml to define the application_id
