     `context.opts.plugin` object will only be passed to plugin hooks scripts.
     You can also require additional Cordova modules in your script using `context.requireCordovaModule`
in the following way:
     var Q = context.requireCordovaModule('q');
    +You can make your scipts async using Q:
    +module.exports = function(context) {
    +    var Q = context.requireCordovaModule('q');
    +    var deferral = new Q.defer();
    +    setTimeout(function(){
    +      console.log('hook.js>> end');
    +    deferral.resolve();
    +    }, 1000);
    +    return deferral.promise;
     __Note__:  new module loader script interface is used for the `.js` files defined via
`config.xml` or `plugin.xml` only.
     For compatibility reasons hook files specified via `/hooks` folders are run via Node
child_process spawn, see 'Non-javascript' section below.
     ### Non-javascript
    -__Note__: we highly recommend writing your hooks using Node.js so that they are cross-platform,
see 'Javascript' section above.
     Non-javascript scripts are run via Node child_process spawn from the project's root directory
and have the root directory passes as the first argument. All other options are passed to
the script using environment variables:
    -* CORDOVA_VERSION - The version of the Cordova-CLI.
    -* CORDOVA_PLATFORMS - Comma separated list of platforms that the command applies to (e.g.:
android, ios).
    -* CORDOVA_PLUGINS - Comma separated list of plugin IDs that the command applies to (e.g.:
org.apache.cordova.file, org.apache.cordova.file-transfer)
    -* CORDOVA_HOOK - Path to the hook that is being executed.
    -* CORDOVA_CMDLINE - The exact command-line arguments passed to cordova (e.g.: cordova
run ios --emulate)
