The best way to save my money and time!

Excellent tool for consistent and rapid development!

Very good. Intuitive enough to where you don't really need to contact customer support unless you're trying to customize a template - they're more than willing to help answer any questions.

Pros

I liked the ability to quickly generate templates in many languages. It helped determine which software stack my team would be most comfortable in the long run. If at any point in the future we wanted to change frameworks or technologies, we would easily be able to do so with a few clicks. Custom templates helped us include our own coding style for each of our generated projects the way we are comfortable with.

Cons

We didn't like the way a backend router was handling middleware, but this was quickly fixed by overriding the template.

Reasons for Choosing Skaffolder

Honestly, there's no unified interface for building many projects with Yeoman or practically any other open-source alternative. I couldn't create a universal template that I would be able to use in some of our projects where we didn't use the same software stack. Ex: We now use NodeJS + NoSQL (Mongo), but our older projects use PHP + SQL (Postgres) and converting our templates from PHP to Node was just two clicks. We couldn't find this anywhere. The ability to work collaboratively is a must between projects and the template mechanism Skaffolder offers suits our needs perfectly. It also auto-generates documentation which is a godsend.

A really fast prototyping tool

Pros

I used skaffolder to fast prototyping several ideas I had in the past years, and it has been a great companion in my tool's box. Since the first releases and a lot of improvements have been done. The code generated is always clean and follows the standards so you can easily customize it once you get it on your machine. The whole interface has been restyled and now it's really easy to use. I also really liked the possibility to choose not only from the most common stack but to compose my own, so that I can experiment several configurations.

Cons

Often there are new languages/integrations/features added, and it's been great. If only it had integrated Python and Django...

Excellent!

My experience was great because [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was there to help. Without him, it could have taken me two days to generate a working web app.

Pros

I was able to generate a web app in half a day, with the help of [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN].

Cons

There are still bugs. For example, it did not push any code to github, and yet there were no errors. Also, the generated code had some errors like a missing comma.

Reasons for Choosing Skaffolder

Skaffolder supports React with Redux and also generates maintainable code.

Boost the dev scaffolding

Used scaffolder for most of my consulting projects, including a genome analysis software

Pros

The software is highly customisable, and allows you to generate a basic structure for any project in any language, you just need to pick a default language template or import your own, and it goes smoothly, it integrates well into github and any git repositories

Cons

There is a high learning curve when creating a custom template, but is normal in this kind of software

Reasons for Choosing Skaffolder

Its simplicity in creating entities and pages, and its speed
