Templer system extensions for buildouts and buildout recipes

Project Description


This package extends the functionality of the templer code generation system. It builds upon the functionality of templer.core, and depends on that package. This package provides basic support for creating buildouts and buildout recipes using zc.buildout. Included are packages for basic buildout skeletons and buildout recipes.

Creating Packages

As with the parent package, templer.core, creating packages using templer.buildout templates is accomplished by using the templer script. The script is invoked thus:

templer basic_buildout

This will create a basic buildout skeleton, containing the zc.buildout file and a buildout.cfg file which may be edited to taste.

Included Templates

This creates a basic skeleton for a buildout.
This creates a skeleton for a buildout recipe for use with zc.buildout

Other Functions

The templer script provides a number of other functions, these are described in full on the index page for templer.core at PyPI
