Generator JSON examples (more examples: paulmillr/brunch-with-chaplin):

{"files": [{"from": "model.js.hbs", "to": "app/models/{{name}}.js"}]}
{
  "files": [
    {
      "from": "controller.coffee.hbs",
      "to": "app/controllers/{{name}}-controller.coffee"
    },
    {
      "from": "route.coffee.hbs",
      "to": "app/routes.coffee",
      "method": "append"
    }
  ],
  "dependencies": [
    {"type": "model"},
    {"type": "view", "name": "{{name}}-item"},
    {"type": "style", "name": "{{pluralName}}", "parentPath": "{{parentPath}}/styles"},
    {"type": "template", "name": "{{pluralName}}", "parentPath": "{{parentPath}}/templates"}
  ],
  "description" : "Simple controller"
}

description field is optionnal.

You can add Handlebars helpers in your generator folder by adding helpers.js file.

Generator Helpers definition file example:

module.exports = function(Handlebars) {
  Handlebars.registerHelper('date', (function() {
    var date = new Date();
    return function(options) {
      return date.toString();
    };
  })());
};

So now you can use it in your generators source file. Example:

# Generation Date : {{date}}

You can use it programmatically too, from node.js:

var scaffolt = require('scaffolt');

scaffolt('view', 'user', function(error) {
  console.log('Scaffolded!');
});

scaffolt('model', 'cart', {
  generatorsPath: 'custom-gens-dir',
  parentPath: 'custom-app/models/carting.js',
  revert: true
}, function(error) {
  console.log('Reverted!');
});
