Hi All thank you for all the great feedback. Please see my comments
To give a bit of back story to what I am doing : I work in a small
jewellery design studio and we work off a shared drive where we store
all our projects.
As of now I am looking to generate directories for our various shared
projects such as:
1: seasonal collections
2: bespoke work
4: wholesale orders
Each time we need to generate a new directory I would like to give it a
name which then replaces a variable in the folder names and also copy
over files such as maya, photoshop etc which I have already made.
An example part of such a directory would look like this:
*** Cut out of a collection directory ***
In the illustrator folder I will need to copy over pre made illustrator
In the Photoshop folder I will need to copy over pre made photoshop
In the maya folder I will need to copy over pre made maya render files
I wanted to take the template route as it would allow me to make
corrections or new types of structures without having to go through the
codes every time - this would also allow my partner (less coding savvy)
to make templates without opening the ruby files or having to involve me
Also I can imagine I would do a small GUI to make the directory
structure templates so that you can drag-drop and reorder at will and
then just phase them in to the main script to use them as needed.
@Abinoam Jr :
Thanks for the rake file link I will have a read through over the
weekend as I am sure it can kick start my thinking about my own script.
@ Daniel :
I had a look at the Templer and yes it does look like it’s the same as I
need but as I am not too savvy on the matter I can’t see if I can lift
the concept directly but I would need to read their docs properly on the
weekend to see if this could kick start my work – thank you for passing
