For detail usage please check Reframe Documentation.

brew tap ansvia/tools
brew install reframe

$ cargo install reframe

Download binary

Download binary for your specific platform from release page.


$ reframe [SOURCE]


$ reframe anvie/basic-rust

anvie/basic-rust is refering to my github repo: basic-rust.rf.

Build Source

To create Reframe source is super duper easy, all you needs is write Reframe.toml at the root project dir, example:

name = "Hello World"
version = "1.0"

with_serde = { ask = "Dengan serde?", default = false }

serde_version = { ask = "Versi serde?", default = "1.0", if="with_serde" }

# without default value means required
author_name = { ask = "Author name?" }

author_email = { ask = "Author email?" }

Every string type param will have case variants automagically, eg: author_name will have: author_name_lowercase, author_name_snake_case, author_name_kebab_case.

So when you need to get project name with snake case, write: $name_snake_case$.

When you done, you can test using reframe [YOUR-WORKING-TEMPLATE-DIR], if all is ok, push the project to your github repo with additional postfix .rf at the project name, eg: if your repo name is unicorn then you must push with name unicorn.rf, and finally you can use anywhere by simply typing:



$ reframe agus/unicorn

For detail usage please check Reframe Documentation.

Reframe source examples:

Supported case variants:

  • *_lower_case -> my cool app
  • *_snake_case -> my_cool_app
  • *_kebab_case -> my-cool-app
  • *_shout_snake_case -> MY_COOL_APP
  • *_upper_case -> MY COOL APP
  • *_camel_case -> myCoolApp
  • *_pascal_case -> MyCoolApp

You can also use builtin variables:

  • year -> Print current year, eg: 2019.
  • month_name -> Print current month, eg: July


Reframe also support templating engine for manipulating code use Handlebars syntax, example:

{{#if with_jwt}}
const jwt = require('jsonwebtoken');

Available sources:

For more sources see SOURCES.

You can also list available sources by typing:

reframe --list
