Do you ever have problems with copy and paste? I often did, and that is why I create custom templates for often used files that match certain patterns.
With files from the structure of PostgreSQL’s extensions was the same thing.
I was tired of creating the files and edit the META, controlfile, READMEs, etc. every time I start a new extension and felt that I need something that made me more productive, so I decided to create an automatic generator and share it with the world.
I called it pgxn-utils, and you should give it a try: it is easy to install, easy to use and will help you to start hacking quickly!
First install it:
gem install pgxn_utils
Then start a new extension:
pgxn_utils skeleton my_cool_extension
Thats all! It will create the initial skeleton for you and you can start coding! But, if you don’t want to install it, see it in action
