Beet is a simple project/app generator, with its roots and underlying infrastructure heavily influenced from Rails Templates.
Currently Beet will focus on Rails template generation, but there's no reason not to extend it to build out any sort of project. The goal is to have a variety of core level methods to allow for building of higher level concepts that make sense in whatever your project needs.
Eventually I would love to see strategies/templates for sinatra, merb, iPhone apps, etc. The sky is the limit.
Beet should be compatible with existing rails templates. For instance, to use the daring.rb template, you can run:
beet generate new_daring_project –templates github.com/jeremymcanally/rails-templates/raw/10f5bc25e4067968dcf3e950a95538dcbc1f79ed/daring.rb
