This plugin provides the |:Templator| command that can be used to easily
create multi-file projects.

In many programming languges/environments, you usually work with a set of files
that belong together. E.g. if you create a c file, you usually also want to
create a h header file. If you create a viewer file, you usually also want to
create corresponding model and controller files. If you want to create a
library file, you usually also want to create some test file etc. This is were
templator comes in.

The templator plugin allows the creation of filesets based on multi-file
templates. Possible use cases:

    - Create multi-file projects
    - Create multiple-files within a project, e.g.
        - a source file and the corresponding header file
        - a source file and the corresponding test file
        - files for a model, a view, and a controller

Templates can be written in any code template/skeleton/snippets style. At the
time of writing, templates can be written in:

    - template vim (see |templator-tvim|) ("tvim" extension)
    - tskeleton (vimscript #1160) ("tskel" extension)

It shoudln't be too difficult to add support for additional template


The vimplugin template, which is provided with the plugin, consist of the following files: >


and an optional vim script (see |templator-scripts|) in:

The command call >

    :Templator ~/src/foo/bar/vimplugin myplugin

will result in the creation of the following files: >


Any placeholders within the files are expanded.

be installed: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1160

For projects under VCS control, if you want support for filenames relative to
the project's root, tlib (vimscript #1863) must be installed:
