sinatra-gen

github.com/quirkey/sinatra-gen

DESCRIPTION:

sinatra-gen generates a common file structure and basic app files for a web app utilizing the sinatra framework. For more information on sinatra, check out sinatra.rubyforge.org

SYNOPSIS:

sinatra-gen has a bunch of different options (based loosley on merb-gen) to try to not lock the user into any specific frameworks/dev practices.

Run:

sinatra-gen [appname] [actions] [options]

e.g.

sinatra-gen mysinatrapp get:/ post:/:id --vendor --init --test=shoulda --views=haml

Actions

!! NEW as of 0.2.0 (12/23/08)

For even faster app development you specify actions to include in your app when generating. Actions are written out as

http_method:path

And are seperated by spaces. For example:

get:/ post:/:id put:/update/*

Will be added you your app as:

get '/' do
end

post '/:id' do
end

put '/update/*' do
end

It will also generate test skeletons in the test framework of your choosing.

Options

(can also be obtained by running sinatra-gen with no arguments):

-v, –version Show the sinatra-gen version number and quit. -d, –vendor Extract the latest sinatra to vendor/sinatra –tiny Only create the minimal files. –init Initialize a git repository –cap Adds config directory with basic capistrano deploy.rb –scripts Install the rubigen scripts (script/generate, script/destroy) –git /path/to/git Specify a different path for 'git' –test=test_framework Specify your testing framework (unit (default)/rspec/spec/shoulda/bacon) –views=view_framework Specify your view framework (erb (default)/haml/builder)

The –tiny option will create no directories. Just an app.rb, a Rakefile, and a config.ru (Rackup file)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:

Big props to the Sinatra developers (github.com/bmizerany/sinatra/). Also, thanks to Dr. Nic (github.com/drnic) for the Rubigen and Newgem libraries
