Visual Studio solutions for Sitecore projects are quite complex, as there are multiple integration points to manage. Automating the solution setup process accelerates the time it takes to kick off new projects and enforces consistency across the entire development team.
This post demonstrates how to use Yeoman to create a custom Sitecore project generator. With Yeoman, we can create a Sitecore solution template that’s source controlled and collectively managed. This allows teams to hit the ground running faster, and when a team does something really cool in their project that everyone likes, they can add it to the template so that everyone can benefit from the learnings and the “company standard” can evolve.
