skema 0.1

I have just released skema, a very simple tool I wrote to automate some repetitive coding tasks. Nothing fancy, just a ruby script that expands ERB templates in a directory, reading variable values from the command line, configuration files, or interactively.
Its purpose is similar to kapptemplate (it already includes a minimal KDE application template), but it may be faster to use for little things, and it is probably easier to create templates for it.
Here is a tarball for those of you who want to try it out. You can find a short tutorial in the README file that should be enough to get you started.
Here is a screenshot of skema in interactive mode while expanding the kapp template:

    […] In this post I’d also like to point out to you about an extremely valuable tool, written by one of my KDE co-hacker and good friend Paolo Capriotti. I just noticed he blogged about it, I tried it this afternoon when he first shown his prerelease to me, and I must say it really rocks. It’s a tool written in ruby which performs similar tasks than kapptemplate (see kdesdk), but it works with templates and it’s *way* more powerful. It’s written for KDE 4 so that’s also a big plus (meaning automatic generation of CMake file, etc…). =) It also comes with very handy tools builtin, and does *much* more than just generate empty apps, like it has the ability to add a GPLv2 header license to multiple source files with a one liner command line, or the ability to create skeletons for classes just as simply. Here’s the link to his blog entry: […]
