A Simple, Flexible Text Templating, Build, & Project Distribution System

Project description


What is doxx?

doxx is a generic text file project build and distribution system. It supports simple YAML formatted build specs and build time text file customization using local or remote text templates (that can be hosted anywhere).

For those who prefer the ready-made approach, the doxx Package Repository contains a growing list of resusable, common project types that can be built with a simple set of doxx commands. If you’re looking for a quick way to build Bootstrap, Zurb Foundation, jQuery, Font Awesome, angular.js, ember.js, Ionic mobile apps, software licenses, settings & testing file stubs, and much more, the packages are already built for you. Use ‘doxx search [query]’ to see if your favorite package is available.

Features include:

  • Generic text project support. Use it for anything from a Bootstrap framework driven website to a statistical analysis script stub. If it contains text, it should work.

  • Simple, legible YAML syntax build specs that do not require scripting/programming know-how

  • Local template file support

  • Remote template file support (from any hosting site that supports GET requests)

  • Github pull shortcodes allow you to include entire Github repositories or cherry pick specific repository files or directories for your project

  • Full UTF-8 character set support in templates, named text replacement tags in templates, and replacement strings entered by users

  • Support for the distribution of binary files with your projects

  • Multi-processor template file build support

Additional information is available in the documentation.
