HackMan

Swift Package Manager compatible License MIT

HackMan is a simple tool for generating boilerplate code directly via the command line.

Let hackman do the boring work and save some time. Hackman is heavily inspired by the rails command.

Installation

Clone and build

git clone git@github.com:Cosmo/HackMan.git
cd HackMan
swift build -c release

Add hackman executable to your PATH.

PATH=$PATH:$(pwd)/.build/release

or make it persistent

For zsh Users (default on macOS Catalina)

echo "export PATH=\"\$PATH:$(pwd)/.build/release\"" >> ~/.zshrc

For bash Users (default on macOS Mojave)

echo "export PATH=\"\$PATH:$(pwd)/.build/release\"" >> ~/.bash_profile

Usage

New Project

# Create new project directory including a "project.yml" for xcodegen
hackman new APP_NAME

# Change into your project directory
cd APP_NAME

Generators

Run these generators inside of your project directory.

# Create an AppDelegate
hackman generate app_delegate

  --coordinator, -c
    Adds coordinator support

  --force, -f

# Create Model, UICollectionView/UITableView Extensions, UIViewController with UICollectionView/UITableView, ViewControllerDetail, ChildCoordinator, Coordinator Protocol and ReusableView Protocol
hackman generate scaffold NAME [PROPERTY[:TYPE] PROPERTY[:TYPE]] …

# By default, the scaffold will be UICollectionView based.
# In order to create UITableView based scaffolds, pass the --view=table at the end.
# Like so:
hackman generate scaffold song title:string year:int --view=table

Options
  --coordinator, -c
    Adds coordinator support
    
  --force, -f

You can also write hackman g instead of hackman generate.

Properties

When creating scaffolds, models, controllers you can also specify multiple fields to be generated automatically

hackman g scaffold author name:string birthday:date

This commands creates among other things a struct of type Author with the following properties.

    let name: String
    let birthday: Date

You can also reference to your custom types.

hackman g scaffold Article title:string body:string published_at:date author:author

This will generate the following properties inside of the Article model.

    let title: String
    let body: String
    let publishedAt: Date
    let author: Author

If you omit the property type, hackman assumes you want a property of type String.

hackman g scaffold article title body published_at:date author:author

An example of a fully working app

hackman new MusicApp
cd MusicApp
hackman g app_delegate --coordinator
hackman g asset_catalog
hackman g launch_screen
hackman g scaffold artist name --coordinator
hackman g scaffold song title year:int --coordinator
hackman g scaffold album name uuid artist:artist created_at:date updated_at:date --coordinator
hackman g view_controller_information --coordinator
hackman g coordinator_main song artist album --include=information
xcodegen
open MusicApp.xcodeproj
