I18n rake scaffolds sass
What is missing
to keep you DRY?
... An idea:
Scaffold of your
... for just one resource!
... not following my own conventions!
... that still requires a lot of customization!
All true, that’s why I’ll not talk about the old way
Don’t like uml or need
For examples or just to start
For an old application: “rake dm:export”
For a new application: “rake dm:xmi:to_yaml”
• which templates should be generated
• which attributes/association should be used
in your templates
• Adapt the templates to your liking
• Define your own formats
• super fast prototyping
• applying good conventions (e.g. css, models)
Not just uml2rails
The new DRY for Rails?
• Design the basics of your application
• Run the generator with your own
• Customize the application
Summary of features
Yaml/Uml export to:
OK Views (+helpers)
OK Custom formats

PENDING Intelligent generation of Routes
PENDING Generation of Tests/Specs/Stories
Information on attributes and associations is exploited
in all of the above.
