gutenberg: gut is good!
Gutenberg is a massive template printing, aka scaffolding, tool for Erlang. Like rails generate or yeoman. Gutenberg was highly inspired by lfetool.
Erlang 17 or superior is needed. HOWEVER due to an SSL bug in 17.3, 17.3 is not supported. Please update to 17.3 rev2 from erlang solutions or downgrade to a previous 17 version.
Version 1 will be released this week after I get some input and comments from the community. Please test it and let me know what you think! Obviously this tool is meant for erlang newcomers or people like me that like the tools available in the nodejs, clojure, ruby and python communities.
- Present - v0.9: Basic functionality
- 25 November - v1.0: Support many variables in generators. Better documentation for example on how to create your own generators. Odds and ends

wget https://github.com/unbalancedparentheses/gut/raw/master/bin/gut chmod +x ./gut sudo mv ./gut /usr/local/bin/
The generators are searched and downloaded from github (like yeoman) so that anybody can create a generator and use it with gut
