Template adapter for phonegap version of our web app (Fill the hole that .htaccess left behind).
/******
* @author: Steven Spielburg, j/k, it's me!
* @since: Long time away
* @galaxy: Far far away
*
* Usually our .htaccess would build a proper query string so that index.php can handle any request for us.
* Now we have no .htaccess except on the api server. So we must map our own templates. This pattern below
* will serve as almost middleware to AjaxHustleBunny. Normally AHB would make HTTP request and index.php
* would return the correct page, then AHB would fire enpoint event (`controller/action`, id) to all JS
* modules, but now instead AHB will call aroma.loadAssets() with params and aroma.loadAssets shall return
* a promise that will resolve to AHB after page is loaded, then AHB can fire ajax enpoint pub/sub event to
* all JS modules like normal day at office.
*

/**
* aroma.loadAssets [Function: Public]
*
* Loads the html Assets for the requested controller, action, id combination. Sort of middleware
* because in webapp AjaxHustleBunny handles all this. In PhoneGap app AjaxHustleBunny.getPage
* calls this function with {controller,action,id} built from the passed url that is passed in from
* AjaxHustleBunny.hopHere function or an '.ahb-click' element click event.
*
* This function will return a promise that resolves after template has been loaded. This will be the
* signal to AjaxHustleBunny to fire endpoint event as it normally does after it loads a new page
* itself in the webapp version of `Chainplace`.

/*************
Object Name: __pageMap
Properties are controller names and are themselves Objects which map views on that specific controller.
So `__pageMap.charts` would be set to an object mapping all views in the `charts` controller.
Below is an example of a view named `pie` in the `charts` controller.
__pageMap.charts.pie = {network: 'charts/page1', franchise: 'home/index', requiresID: true}
When the app navigates to the 'charts/pie' page it while the current user is a `network` user then the
app would template in something like:
$('[data-chainplace-view]').load(`views/charts/page1.html`)
if the user was `franchise` user:
$('[data-chainplace-view]').load(`views/home/index.html`)
- May I caution against sending the user to views outside of the current folder however. If a franchise user
doesn't belong inside a controller view, then just don't map anything to that user type. We can then let
the application handle what it wants to do in that senerio. But, we do have that power, it becomes useful
in situations like controller `home` where `home/index` actually maps by default to either the `network` or
`franchise` view folders.
