Remove requires of Format/WKT from Geometry.js #101

wants to merge 1 commit into from

Can we please remove this requires, so it's no longer included in all vector builds. It is only used by the de/serialize functions, which I would imagine is a minority usage. Would suggest putting a note in the release notes that anyone wanting to use these functions should ensure they have Format/WKT in their build config.

No logic change. Only affects builds.

I like the idea of this change, but think it needs to involve a bit more. We don't want to simply fail when someone calls geometry.toString or OpenLayers.Geometry.fromWKT. See #102 for a more complete set of changes.


There are quite a few inconsistencies in the way that classes use (or not) '@requires', so it wouldn't be alone in 'simply failing'. However, I agree that #102 is much better, so I think we can close this one.
