Just added a new scaffolder plugin to demonstrate how small Colony plugins can be. The plugin is called pt.hive.colony.plugins.main.scaffolding.minimal
, it injects into pt.hive.colony.plugins.main.scaffolding,
via the scaffolder
capability, and you can use it by typing generate_scaffold minimal <plugin_id>
in the Colony console.
Some of the examples that were shown until now may seem quite big and give the wrong impression that Colony plugins require a lot of typing overhead, but this is not so. We personally go overboard on code conventions, and that is the end result... the extra effort definitely pays off for us, since we are a team, and we have learned that no good comes out of each one coding in a different way. However, all these code conventions may be unnecessary for single developers, and are uninteresting and "scary" for beginners.
This plugin was introduced in commit 14345.
