I always find myself doing the same makeover of the default scaffolding generated by
mix phx.gen.html. This includes things like:
- adding pagination to the index page
- going back to the index page instead of the show page after create and update is done (that’s often more practical in real life applications)
- adding search and ordering functionality to the index page
- replacing English expressions with signs and icons (more concise and less things to translate to be international)
I believe others do the same facelifings over and over again on the generated code, just like me. Is there already a package that adds an alternative scaffolding to Phoenix that needs less rework? Or should I roll my own?
If the latter, what features would you like to see in an alternative version?
