Very basic Rails 3 HAML scaffold generator


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

  3. Either

    gem install haml


    bundle install
  4. Run

    haml --rails .
  5. Edit config/application.rb and add the following:

    config.generators do |g|
        g.template_engine :haml
  6. Either

    git clone git:// lib/generators/haml


    git submodule add git:// lib/generators/haml
  7. 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 5 and use ...

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