Subject Re: [windows] Scripts for Windows Phone
Date Tue, 26 Mar 2013 03:24:06 GMT
Yes sounds good. Most other platforms implement it in this way:

- Android's create script [1] uses a templates folder [2] that it makes
copies of on-create, which contains (among other things) the cordova
folder [3].
- Blackberry does a similar thing [4]
- so does iOS [5]
