dl-skel 0.1.2

DoubleLeft skeleton generator

# dl-skel provides skeleton generator for you to avoid creating a
project from zero everytime.

Its useful to bootstrap general projects, like HTMLBootstrap, PythonPackage,
and others. It will download a GIT repository available on the net, and
process some files to change names and so on.

In the end, you will have a new folder, with `` that can be used
to `runserver`, or `build` the project.



## Installation

Install it via pip (`pip install dl-skel`), or manually:

$ git clone
$ cd dl-skel
$ python install

This will create a `` bin in your path (virtualenv or systemwide)

## CLI Usage

Usage via CLI app called ``

Usage: [options]

  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
                        dlskel Config file. Default is ~/.dl-skel/config.json
                        Use another Skeleton Search Path. Default is ~/.dl-skel/

  -l, --list            List skeletons

  Import new Template:
                        import a new template from the given GIT

  Create a new project:
                        Create a new <project> skeleton

## Default Skeletons

You can check all available skeletons using `-l`:

$ -l
wordpress5     Wordpress 5.0

Template | URL
--- | ---
wordpress5              | [skeleton-wordpress](
HTMLRichApp             | [skeleton-htmlrichapp](
HTMLSimleApp    | [skeleton-wordpress](

## Create a new project

To create a new project using a base skeleton, try option `-c`

$ -c python ../my-shiny-project
Cloning python( into ../my-shiny-project

## Importing your own skeletons

To import your own skeletons, use `-i`


This will import `<REPO_URL>` and save it as `<SKELETON_NAME>`.
You can now create new projects using `<SKELETON_NAME>`

$ -c <SKEL_NAME> name-of-my-project

# Creating my own skeletons

Skeletons are simple **GIT** repositories, with a special recipe stored in the
file `dlbuild`. This recipe tells what to substitute, download, install,
pretty much by hand.

You MUST create the following functions in the `` file:

        setup                           (Download and replace files)
        build                           (Build project)

while others functions, like `runserver` are optional.

To see a simple example of a skeleton, check  [skeleton-wordpress](

# Using it inside python

You can use it direcly as an API in python

$ python

>>> from dlskel.skel import skeleton_create, make_password
>>> skeleton_create(    '',
                            'DB_NAME':      'myproj',
                            'DB_USER':      'myuser',
                            'DB_PASSWORD':  make_password(length=8) })

### TODO

- ✓ Add better file substituion via jinja2 template
- ✓ Add simple API for using it inside python
- ✓ Finish and make it pip installable

- ✓ Delete repository .git when creating a new project.
- Add dependencies check and installation (if necessary)
