Bob renders directory structure templates

Latest Version: 0.1.2

Mister Bob the Builder creates directory skeletons.

  • [low] better format print questions output (keep order of questions -> use order information like for asking questions)

  • [maybe] ability to simulate rendering (dry-run)
  • [maybe] ability to update/patch templates


0.1a9 (2013-04-26)

  • #22: Prevent users from specifying target directory inside template dir [Domen Kožar]

0.1a6 (2013-01-02)

  • Added pre_ask_question and post_ask_question to [questions] section [Domen Kožar]
  • Added pre_render, post_render and post_render_msg options [Domen Kožar]
  • Added [defaults] section that will override template defaults. The only difference to [variables] is that variables provide default answers [Domen Kožar]
  • Moved renderer parameter to [template] section [Domen Kožar]
