The Swanky CLI Tool is designed to take the manual effort out of scaffolding your documentation. With the Swanky CLI Tool you can quickly create scaffolding sites, content, themes and snippets.

If you do not find what you are looking for please a look at the troubleshooting guide or raise an issue on GitHub.

Running the Generator

Now that you have the Swanky CLI Tool installed you can easily create or add to your documentation site.

$ swanky [generate] [type]


The Swanky CLI Tool has a very simple help menu.

$ swanky --help

That's A Wrap
