The Templates plugin is a feature similar to gradle-templates that can generate default directory structures and/or classes. As of GradleFx v0.5 this plugin has only very partially been implemented. Actually only the automatic generation of directory structure and the main application file (+ the descriptor file for AIR projects) is currently available, as it is a dependency required by the IDE Plugin. Further development is not on our priority list for the time being.
Load the plugin like so:
apply plugin: 'templates'
As of GradleFx v0.5 only one sub-plugin exists:
- Scaffold plugin: generates directory structure and main application class
This means that at the moment apply plugin: ‘templates’ and apply plugin: ‘scaffold’ will both result in the same tasks being available.
Load the plugin:
apply plugin: 'scaffold'
The scaffold task is now available to you. It is the only available task for now. To use it execute gradle scaffold at the command line.
With all conventions this will result in the following output for a swf project:
$ gradle scaffold :my-first-app:scaffold Creating directory structure src/main/actionscript src/main/resources src/test/actionscript src/test/resources Creating main class src/main/actionscript/Main.mxml BUILD SUCCESSFUL
In an air or mobile project an application descriptor file will also be created based on the air.applicationDescriptor property:
If you’ve defined some locales in your build script (say locales = ['nl_BE', 'fr_BE']), directories for these locales will also be created:
