-# Windows Phone Command-line Tools
-The `cordova` command-line utility is a high-level tool that allows
-you to build applications across several platforms at once. An older
-version of the Cordova framework provides sets of command-line tools
-specific to each platform. To use them as an alternative to the CLI,
-you need to download this version of Cordova from
-[]( The download contains
-separate archives for each platform. Expand the platform you wish to
-target. The tools described here are typically available in the
-top-level `bin` directory, otherwise consult the __README__ file for
-more detailed directions.
-For information on the low-level command-line interface that enables
-plugins, see Using Plugman to Manage Plugins. See Application Plugins
-for an overview.
-## Windows Phone
-The Windows Phone command-line tools support creating, building, and
-running new projects. Commands must be run from a cmd or powershell
-The WP8 repo now includes code for building both WP7 + WP8 apps.  The
-repo has subdirectories for each: `wp7/` and `wp8/`.
-## Create a Project
-There are 2 ways to go about creating a new Apache Cordova WP7 or WP8 application.
-### Run the Batch File to Create and Install the Templates
-- The root of the repo contains a `createTemplates.bat` file.
-  Double-clicking it generates two `.zip` files:
-  `` and ``, where _x.x.x_
-  represents the current version number. To easily use these files in
-  Visual Studio, copy them to `My Documents\Visual Studio
-  2012\Templates\ProjectTemplates\`. You are then able to create
-  new Apache Cordova Windows Phone apps from Visual Studio's
-  __File &rarr; New Project__ menu.
-- If you run the batch file from the command line, you can also call with a parameter to
install automatically
-Run the script :
-    >createTemplates.bat -install
-### Use the Create Scripts on the Command Line
-Run the `create` command, specifying the existing path to the project,
-the reverse-domain-style package identifier, and the app's display
-name.  Here is the syntax for both Windows Phone 7 and 8:
-    >.\wp7\bin\create PathToNewProject [ PackageName ] [ AppName ]
-    >.\wp8\bin\create PathToNewProject [ PackageName ] [ AppName ]
-    >PathToNewProject : The path to where you wish to create the project
-    >PackageName      : The namespace for the project (default is Cordova.Example)
-    >AppName          : The name of the application (default is CordovaWP8AppProj or CordovaWP7AppProj)
-    >examples:
-    >.\wp7\bin\create C:\path\to\my_new_project
-    >.\wp8\bin\create C:\path\to\my_new_project io.cordova.example CordovaWP8App
-Launch Visual Studio and open Solution file (.sln) in (C:\path\to\my_new_project)
-Build and Run it
-## Building the Project (Clean, then Build)
-* Debug
-    $ C:\path\to\my_new_project\cordova\build --debug
-* Release
-    $ C:\path\to\my_new_project\cordova\build --release
-## Running the App
-Run the 'run' command with the following *optional* parameters
-* Target specification. This includes `--emulator`, `--device`, or `--target=<targetID>`.
-* Build specification. This includes `--debug`, `--release`, or `--nobuild`.
-    $ C:\path\to\my_new_project\cordova\run [Target] [Build]
-By default the `run` command is called with `--emulator --debug` if flags are not provided.
-## Cleaning
-    $ C:\path\to\my_new_project\cordova\clean
