    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.

    Command line usage


    Installing the CLI

    To run the verbfile 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-verbfile

    You may now install this module with the following command:

    $ npm install --global generate-verbfile


    You should now be able to run generate-verbfile with the following command:

    $ gen verbfile

    What will happen?

    Running $ gen verbfile will run the generator's default task, which will:

    1. prompt you for any information that's missing
    2. render the necessary template(s) using your answers
    3. write the resulting files to the current working directory

    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:
