Codesmith

05 May 2005

Back when we had a discreet data access layer, Codesmith looked really useful. I was using it to generate the data access layer, the business objects, and some of our forms. But we're moving away from that now... so maybe the C# led templating that Codesmith provides isn't so useful?

Well... no. I haven't "unlearned" C#, so I may as well use it. I've got a MySQL database which I'm accessing through Ruby. I need a form, so what's to stop me generating in using Codesmith? It's a powerful tool, and it's now at version three, with better template caching and debugging.
