    +# New Platform Checklist
    +## Stand-alone scripts
    +bin/create scripts
    +- bin/create _(typically a node script)_
    +- bin/create.bat for windows
    +    - windows .bat file typically just calls bin/create with node
    +- not entirely sure this code is run, or needs to exist with newish non-destructive platform
    +## Package Expectations
    +- Platforms must have a package.json in their root.
    +- Package.json exports a 'main', usually `"main": "src/cordova/Api.js"`
    +    - This allows other modules to simply require() the path to this platform and get
access to the Api.
    +## Api (Platform) Expectations
    +- The PlatformApi class
    +    - The PlatformApi class is an abstraction around a particular platform that exposes
all the actions, properties, and methods for this platform so they are accessible programmatically.
    +    - It can install & uninstall plugins with all source files, web assets and js
    +    - It exposes a single 'prepare' method to provide a way for cordova-lib to apply
a project's setting/www content to the platform.
    +    - The PlatformApi class should be implemented by each platform that wants to use
the new API flow. For those platforms, which don't provide their own PlatformApi, there will
be a polyfill in cordova-lib.
    +    - Platforms that implement their own PlatformApi instance should implement all prototype
methods of this class to be fully compatible with cordova-lib.
    +    - The PlatformApi instance should define the following field:
    +        - platform : This is a String that defines a platform name.
    +- Api.js exports static functions
    +    - there is currently a requirement that the file be called Api.js (todo:change that)
