Rails Cairngorm Generator

September 10th, 2006

Update, someone has released a similar app, found here.
For those who use Cairngorm I’m in the process of creating a Rails Cairngorm Generator which will enable you to generate Cairngorm app quite easily, without all that copying and pasting from the tutorials that I find myself doing just to get a basic structure up.

One command will generate some Cairngorm Scaffolding, however the plugin doesn’t stop there. A ‘command’ and its corresponding ‘event’ can also be generated, as can ‘vo’s and ‘delegate’s.

Does this have much to do with rails? Not really, but it just uses its clever ‘generators’ and plugin infrastructure and hopefully it will promote Rails/Flex Integration

If any of you Cairngorm addicts out there want to contribute, please get in touch.

    During the last hollidays i have whipped up my own set of cairngorm generators.

    i have a cairngorm generator:
    takes the name of your app and lays out your typical cairngorm project structure, including the modelLocator, frontcontroller, services.mxml, and of course the app. You can supply a package structure as well.

    a delegate creator, nothing much special, also takes the package structure and optional params will be implemented as methods.

    a command creator, will generate the command, the event and a comment you can past into your frontcontroller.

    an standalone event and value object creator, although for the VO there are probably smarter things, like examining your Model classes…

    if you are interested to compary your generators with mine, feel free to drop me a line at ilya.devers -at- innberg.com.
