    What is "Generate"?

    Generate is a command line tool and developer framework for scaffolding out new GitHub projects using generators and tasks.

    Answers to prompts and the user's environment can be used to determine the templates, directories, files and contents to build. Support for gulp, base and assemble plugins, and much more.

    Getting started


    Installing the CLI

    To run the editorconfig generator from the command line, you'll need to install Generate globally first. You can do that now with the following command:

    $ npm install --global generate

    This adds the gen command to your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.

    Install generate-editorconfig

    Install this module with the following command:

    $ npm install --global generate-editorconfig


    Run this generator's default task with the following command:

    $ gen editorconfig

    What you should see in the terminal

    If completed successfully, you should see both starting and finished events in the terminal, like the following:

    [00:44:21] starting ...
    [00:44:22] finished ✔

    If you do not see one or both of those events, please let us know about it.


    To see a general help menu and available commands for Generate's CLI, run:

    $ gen help


    All available tasks.


    Generates a .editorconfig file to the current working directory. You can override the default template by adding a custom template to the templates directory in user home, at the following path: ~/templates/_editorconfig


    $ gen editorconfig

    Visit Generate's documentation for tasks.
