Generated files

The python-poetry-vscode Yeoman generator provides the following:

Planned generated files

  • Python package
  • asdf/pyenv file
  • optional mypy
  • optional linting (pylint)
  • optional ci (github actions)
  • poe tasks
  • optional main
  • retrieve latest python dependencies (optional?)

Other features

The python-poetry-vscode generator does its best to ask as few questions as possible without having an educatedly guessed default answer.

Educated guesses are made based on the environment the generator runs in, for instance the git configuration or the currently installed version of a dependency. A great source of infomration is an existing pyproject.toml, as it's there that most of the unguessable answers are saved, like the Python package description.

Furthermore, the vast majority of interactive prompts are also available as command-line options. If the CLI options are given, the prompts aren't displayed.
