Is there a Linux utility for creating templates for directory structures, outside of the scripts packaged with a DE like Gnome or LXDE? (I run openbox and would like to avoid a DE at all costs)
There is this post talking about template files, which I will absolutely use, and there is the template toolkit but that's more for documents and dynamic web content (although, it can be easily extended).
I'm looking for something to encompass whole directory structures as well.
Say I have a C template directory structure like so:
prj_?\ Doxyfile Makefile README bin\ data\ doc\ include\ src
Or a nodejs template structure like:
index.html js/ main.js models/ views/ collections/ templates/ libs/ backbone/ underscore/ ... css/ ...
Surely there must be something available, given that folders like /skel exist... or is that yet another manually scripted section of Linux?
If this doesn't yet exist, I would love to contribute to the community by writing and maintaining a tool of this nature, or at the very least writing a vim plugin to handle such functionality (spoiler alert: doesn't exist), but that would be something to discuss on the vim exchange.
