Bob renders directory structure templates

Project description

Mister Bob the Builder creates directory skeletons.



  • [medium] refactor Python API

  • [medium] gittip

  • [medium] add +var+ folder in template_sample

  • [medium] Check how one would implement multi-namespace python package with current mr.bob api

  • [low] Ability to configure what to ignore when copying templates in bobconfig (as a hook?)

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

  • [low] document we don’t need local commands once answers are remembered (just issue another template on top of current)

  • [low] ability to specify variables/defaults to questions from cli

  • [maybe] ability to simulate rendering (dry-run)

  • [maybe] ability to update/patch templates
