Supported languages iOS Apache Cordova

Cordova / PhoneGap Plugin that exposes supported languages to the App Store (iTunes).
On iOS, Cordova declares (just) english as supported language. Since most of the i18n solutions that developers use for their translation/internazionalizations support are javascript based there is no way to say to app store that anoter language is also supported. You need to explicitly declare those languages within the info.plist file.
Since I'm lazy I prefer letting a plugin do this job (avoiding the need to re-edit the file everytime I do a fresh build from the cordova cli). Hope you find it useful as well.

For ionic/angular v1.x based projects I really like gabegorelick/gulp-angular-gettext.
