Scala Yeoman Generator
The aim of the project is to provide an easy way to scaffold scala projects outside an IDE such as IntelliJ or Eclipse.
What is Yeoman?
Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:
Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.
Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.
npm install -g yo
Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.
To install generator-scala from npm, run:
npm install -g generator-scala
Finally, initiate the generator:
Currently we support 3 subgenerators (maven, sbt and gradle). Each of them accepts the appliation name (default: current directory name) and scala version (default: 2.12.1)
In case you want to go fast, you can provide values for the requested parameters:
yo scala sbt foo 2.11.8
