Information about this fork

This for is no longer following the normal scaffolding layout of Rails. It uses I18n backend for headings, model attributes names etc in it's views.

Rails 3 HAML Scaffold Generator

Essentially just a copy of the Rails 3 ERB generator with HAML replacements for the templates.

Original idea from Paul Barry's article on custom genrators


  1. Generate your new rails application:

    rails new ApplicationName
    cd ApplicationName
  2. Edit "Gemfile" and add "gem haml" and "gem haml_rails" to the gem list

  3. Either

    gem install haml
    gem install haml_rails


    bundle install
  4. Run

    rails generate haml_rails:install
  5. Create stuff with:

    rails generate controller ControllerName index
    rails generate mailer ExamplesNotifications
    rails generate scaffold FancyModel

    ... or if you like to mix it up with ERB, ignore step 4 and use ...

    rails generate haml:controller ControllerName index
    rails generate haml:mailer ExamplesNotifications
    rails generate haml:scaffold FancyModel
