Dressmaker

Beautiful templating

I wanted to do really simple application templating, and found Rubigen and Thor were both tied to a command-line interface paradigm, whereas I really just wanted to execute this stuff programmatically. I also wanted application templates to be entirely self-contained.

Usage

Inside your application

require 'dressmaker'

maker = Dressmaker.new('my-template', 'my-source')
maker.generate

And you're done! If you need to pass in options at generate time, simply pass generate some options.

maker.generate(:database => 'mysql')

Inside the template directory is a file, called Pattern. Here is a typical Pattern:

desc "make executable"
directory.matches('/bin') do |dir|
  dir.all { |f|
    f.make_executable!
  }
end

This would make everything inside bin executable.

Caution!

Everything here is subject to change. This is just an egg of an idea.
