So I did what we, engineers always do in this situation: run your own. Good news, it took just over an hour and I ended with a single very small file. It can only variable substitution but that was enough for me. Here it is:
The best part: it has no dependencies so you can just copy file into your project and template away.
Of course you can Maven just as well:
<repositories> ... <repository> <id>codebistro-open</id> <name>codebistro-open repo</name> <layout>default</layout> <url>http://codebistro.googlecode.com/svn/repo/</url> </repository> ... </repositories> ... <dependencies> ... <dependency> <groupId>org.codebistro.util</groupId> <artifactId>misc</artifactId> <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency> <dependencies>
Microframeworks are popular these days. This thing doesn’t even qualify to be called micro- or even nano- but I got a feeling I am going to use Bristle template in the future…
