In many programming languages/environments, you usually work with a set of files that belong together. E.g. if you create a c file, you usually also want to create a h header file. If you create a viewer file, you usually also want to create corresponding model and controller files. If you want to create a library file, you usually also want to create some test file etc. This is were templator comes in. The templator plugin allows the creation of filesets based on multi-file templates. Possible use cases: - Create multi-file projects - Create multiple-files within a project, e.g. - a source file and the corresponding header file - a source file and the corresponding test file - files for a model, a view, and a controller Templates can be written in any code template/skeleton/snippets style. At the time of writing, templates can be written in: - template vim (see |templator-tvim|) ("tvim" extension) - tskeleton (vimscript #1160) ("tskel" extension) It shouldn't be too difficult to add support for additional template engines. The |:Templator| command can be used to create multi-file projects. Example 1: Create files for the "vimplugin" template-set in the current root directory, which usually is the current working directory unless |b:templator_root_dir| is set (see |templator-arguments| for details): > :Templator vimplugin myplugin "myplugin" is the plugin's name. The argument is required by the template set used in this example. It is also possible to use named arguments. Example 2: Create files for the "vimplugin" template-set in some directory (the directory is created if it doesn't already exist): > :Templator ~/src/foo/bar/vimplugin myplugin Templates are kept in "templator" subdirectories in your 'runtimepath' (e.g. ~/.vim/templator). A subdirectory's name consists of "TEMPLATE_NAME.TEMPLATE_TYPE". TEMPLATE_NAME is the name that is used for the |:Templator| command. TEMPLATE_TYPE is the name of the template engine used to expand file templates. Templates consist of a bunch of files and an optional vim script (see |templator-scripts|) that is run after creating the files. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Status: Experimental Install: See http://github.com/tomtom/vimtlib/blob/master/INSTALL.TXT See http://github.com/tomtom for related plugins.
