Windows 8 Command-line Tools
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
cordova.apache.org. The download contains
separate archives for each platform. Expand the platform you wish to
target. The tools described here are typically available in the
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.
The Windows 8 command-line tools only support creating new projects. Commands must be run from a cmd or powershell prompt.
