> When creating an app using a template from npm like:
> cordova create myapp --template my-cool-cdv-template
> App is created with content of root of the npm pacakge.
> By doing this all files are copied from the template.
> In some cases some files are not desire to end up in the new app, files that are related
to testing, packaging, source control, etc..
> Some files are:
> package.json
> And some time you want the new app to have a package.json provided by the template but
not the template's pacakge.json
> We should implement same way we do cordova-app-hello-world npm package
> main module exports an object with a property dirname
> Example:
> Content of package.tgz from npm
> package.json
> lib/
> .gitignore
> template_content/
> template_content/package.json
> template_content/www
> template_content/config.xml
> index.js
> Content of package.json
> {
> "name": "my-cool-cdv-template",
> "main": "./index.js"
> }
> Content of index.js:
> path=require('path');
> module.exports = {
>    "dirname": path.join(__dirname,'template_content')
> }
> This also allows to run npm install after copying the template files and the template
deliverable included a package.json, for example to have dev tools and scripts to be install
for the development of the cordova app.
