Frictionless Generators
April 25, 2024

Frictionless Generators

Frictionless Generators takes a holistic approach to help you see how to efficiently create and test custom Rails Generators so you and your team can save time. Think of it as a guide for saving time that just happens to use custom Rails Generators as the methodology.

It provides over 150 pages of pragmatic tips, tactics, and code samples to help you avoid speed bumps and get right into creating your own generators. It covers all of the key APIs and tools for creating generators while also avoiding getting stuck in the weeds or creating generators nobody will ever use.

But it's not just about learning how to create them. It's about learning when to not create one. It's about recognizing when and how to customize an existing generator so you don't reinvent the wheel.

Set aside any preconceived notions you may have about creating custom generators in Rails, and you'll add one more powerful tool to that tool belt of yours. And you'll waste less time on the tedious stuff so you can spend it on the high-value work you do.
