Do you think we are missing an alternative of file-templates or a related project?
A simple templating system for files and directories
Assuming you have a directory
$ tree ~/.templates/ /home/me/.templates/ └── post ├── author │ ├── file.md │ └── ??name2?.md ├── ?env?LANGUAGE?.md └── ??name?.md 2 directories, 4 files
Go into a new directory and execute
$ new post Please give a value for 'name': Hello Please give a value for 'name2': World $ tree . ├── author │ ├── file.md │ └── World.md ├── en_US.md └── Hello.md 1 directory, 4 files
How it works
It accepts one argument
dir and then looks up either
%APPDATA%/dir/. It then substitutes
??xxx?by asking the user:
Please give a value for 'xxx':
?env?xxx?by reading the environment variable
in both filenames and file contents, then copying the files into the current directory (if that introduces slashes in a file name, it will happily split the filename into directory structure). This tool works best with other simple tools like sos and [shake](shakebuild.com) in my experience.
- It should work on Windows, but that has not been tested.
- There are no unit tests.
Contributions are always welcome, as long as they:
- Keep it simple
- Work cross-platform
Possible candidates include:
- Adding new variable resources (git config, etc.)
