Benefits of hash vs. none locationType in PhoneGap/Cordova app

Hi all,

I’m building a PhoneGap app with Ember and from what I can tell the locationType setting in environment.js will need to be hash or none (auto doesn’t work, I believe due to PhoneGap serving index.html as a file:///index.html URL, and not a http:// URL).

Does hash or none have any benefit over the other in this scenario?

This same app will also be deployed as a regular web app that is served at an https:// URL. For this I’m planning on using auto locationType. What reasons are there against mixing locationType values like this for different deployments?

Many thanks, Eliot
