Introducing generator-csharp-cli-app

In the weekend I experimented with Yeoman and I created my first generator. This is also the first time I publish a package to the official npm repository, so double fun.

Yeoman is a nice Javascript framework for scaffolding. There are several generators out there, but it is relatively easy to create your own, as they provide good documentation.

My generator creates a Visual Studio solution for a console app, together with a class library for the unit tests. The following animation shows it in action:

It is already discoverable if you search in Yeoman:

and of course also in npm:
