I recently created name-on using the DotNetCore command line tools and VS Code. It was surprisingly easy, and I love scaffolding from the command line.
I also recently got my WSL setup working, which involved setting fish as my default shell, and revisiting some of the functions I have made in the past.
My quick experience with the DNC CLI seemed like the perfect thing to functionalize. I like having a standard structure to my apps:
- class library
- command line
- web app / API
- test project
DNC has the concept of tmeplates and extensions, but what can I say, I wanted to write this with fish. So I did.
I picked the name belvedere by looking up scaffolding in a thesaurus. Apparently its a “raised turret atop a house,” and comes from 1590’s italian.
Belvedere will create all the necessary projects, with the correct intra-project references, a solution, gitignore, and README. It also intializes a git repo and commits the created files.
