Custom quickly templates

Asked by augdawg09 on 2010-10-19

Hey all,

I have made a VERY basic Ruby template for Quickly. However, I am not sure where to put this file so that I can do:

quickly create Quickly-ruby newapp

and have Quickly make it.

One more question.

Are there any places that I can go to read about how to write templates the real way for Quickly?

Thanks for your interest in Quickly and help to make it better.

The current main information to create a template is unfortunately on my server blog post, which is down as I'm currently moving. He will be turned on in a month or so.

For your ruby template, you just need to copy the root template directory to ~/quickly-template and to ensure all your commands are executable.

The easiest way to get an example of custom template is to make $ quickly quickly ubuntu-application my-foo-template.

That's great news!

What is the URL of your website? I would like to go view that tutorial when it comes back online.

Thanks so much for your help!

Also, I just tried dropping my ruby template into the quickly-templates directory and then I did $ quickly create ruby-application firstruby but it said the template could not be found. Do I have to "register" it in the quickly source somewhere? (Shane Fagan's Quickly-vala template is in the quickly templates folder also and it works.)

The url is the one you pointed before:

On the template side, do you have the create command either written or imported? Please have a look at either this template, or one you create with "$ quickly quickly ubuntu-application foo-template" and compare the content (there can be imported commands, or created ones).

Well, I was wondering if I coudl write some of the commands in Ruby because I'm better with Ruby than Bash. Also, how do I rename a Launchpad branch? I made a project for it in Launchpad but I accidentally made a typo when I was typing out the branch information and instead of being lp:~augdawg09/quickly-ruby/quickly-ruby it's lp:~augdawg09/qiuckly-ruby/quickly-ruby. Is there any way I can change that?

Didier Roche (didrocks) said : #7

You can have your commands in ruby, just make them executable in the root directory of the template.

About renaming a project launchpad branch, you should ask to the launchpad guys.

I can answer that one push to a new launchpad branch and delete the other one.

the second item is a project, you can't rename project by yourself, it should be an existing project on launchpad. So the solution is to rename the project.
