3 months ago I open sourced bb_generate, a grunt plugin that scaffold files for backbone.js, the idea was to have an easier solution than yeoman to generate a custom scaffolding solution for specific projects.

It seems I was not the only one thinking about having an easier solution. Camille Reynders thought the same thing and decided to take my project and push it one step further. That iteration is called grunt-generate.

It got the same awesome stuff that bb_generate had plus a few nice goodies, like passing your paths configuration. There is also now only one folder for all backbone template files, meaning adding another framework is trivial.

All round that’s just a superior solution and if you are into scaffolding, love grunt, and are not quite sure about yeoman, I definitely encourage you to check that out.
