A simple command line tool for managing and using skeleton projects
DISCLAIMER: Skely was created for personal use. Contributions are appreciated, but this is a personal project at heart, so don't take it to seriously.
Update: Skely is most likely done with development. It works for what I need it to do, so unless something comes up that I need it to do, I'm probably done with this project. Thanks all!
Skely is very simple. All it does is copy a given template file or directory from
~.config/sk to a specified directory.
To install Skely run
cargo install skely
As of right now, Skely's configuration is very simple. It is one file at
~/.config/config.toml. The default configuration looks like this:
# Skely config editor = "" placeholder = "PLACEHOLDER"
As you many have guessed, the editor option is the editor you would like Skely to use. The string should contain the proper command to call the editor. For example, if I wanted to use Neovim, I wouldn't use
editor = "neovim", I would use
editor = "nvim so that Skely can properly execute it. Placeholder is a bit more complicated. Placeholder is the string that you want to be replaced in all the skeleton files with your project's name. To disable this option simply leave it blank as
Configuring New Skeletons
To configure a new skeleton, you can either configure it manually by creating it in the
~/.config/skeletons directory as a directory or file under the name you would like to identify it by, or you can run the
sk add foo command to open
~/.config/skeletons/foo.sk in your preferred text editor. Interactive directory creation is currently under development.
We have a skeleton structured like this:
~/.config/sk/skeletons/ ├─ c/ │ ├─ src/ │ │ ├─ main.c │ ├─ CMakeLists.txt
The pattern for creating a new project using a template is
sk new <ID> <PATH>
To create a new project using this template in directory
foo you would use the command
sk new c foo
We have a template for a
~/.config/sk/skeletons/ ├─ cmake.sk
To copy this file to our project as
CMakeLists.txt you would use the command
sk new cmake CMakeLists.txt
If you were to run
sk new cmake .
It would copy
cmake.sk to your current project with the name
To remove a configured skeleton
foo, you would run
sk remove foo
Equally as simple, to list configured skeletons, run
