SAO helps you kick start a new project either by using existing "generators" or the ones you made on your own.
Why not use Yeoman?
Yeoman is great except that writing a Yeoman generator is time-consuming, I created SAO to simplify the way we write and use generators.
A Quick Look
Here we have a SAO generator which is used to create a new node module, it's published on npm as sao-nm and also available on GitHub at http://github.com/saojs/sao-nm:
sao nm my-node-module
By running this command, SAO will try to find a cached version of
sao-nm or download from npm if it's not yet cached. Then SAO will generate a new project at
my-node-modules folder according to the
saofile.js in the generator.
Since it's also on GitHub, you can use the generator from there too:
sao saojs/sao-nm my-node-module
