Generate projects

pip install Progen==0.0.1a



Project Generator

Generate projects easily with a single command(python [generator]). As of v0.0.1a, Progen supports generating C++ projects. More efforts are needed to improve it.

Creating your own generator

You can create your own project generator that will be utilized by Progen. A generator is simply a python file.
There are two types of generators:

  • Folders Only This type of generator only requires that you specify folders that will be created with a variable called folders.
    For example:
folders = [

Just save the code above as a python script (for example, inside Progen's generator folder in the installation directory.

To generate a project based on the specified folders above, just run python testscript inside the terminal.

  • Full Generator This type of generator requires that you be responsible for making the folders. This is useful if you want to create a generator that is interactive and flexible.

The code must be inside a main() function in order for it to work. Running a full generator is similar to running a Folders only generator.

NOTE: Generators must be saved inside Progen's generators folder in the installation directory
