Templates installation

Once you have a model you need at least one bundle of templates to generate your code.

The templates are organized in "bundles". A "bundle" is a set of templates designed to generate a particular kind of targets.

Of course you can create your own templates from scatch, but the simplest way to start is to use existing templates.

Templates bundles can be downloaded from GitHub (each bundle is a "git repository").

Templates catalog configuration (GitHub account)

By default the templates catalog points to https://github.com/telosys-templates

To see the current catalog use the gh ("GitHub") command without argument.

You can change it by defining a new account or organization name where you will store your own templates.

Usegh new-catalog to change the current catalog

Examples :


telosys#(mymodel.model)>gh mycatalog
GitHub store is now 'mycatalog'


List templates bundles available in GitHub catalog

To list the bundles available in the current GitHub account use the lgh (List GitHub) command.

The syntax is :

  • lgh list all bundles

  • lgh bundle-name-part list all bundles containing the given name-part in their name

Example : list bundles with name containing "pyth"

telosys#(mymodel.model)>lgh pyth
Bundles found in GitHub store 'telosys-templates-v3' :
 . python-persistence-sqlalchemy
 . python-web-mvc-bottle
 . python-web-rest-bottle
GitHub API rate limit : 57/60

Install bundles of templates

When you have found a useful bundle for your project, you can install it with the ib (Install Bundle) command.

The syntax is : ib bundle-name-part

For more convenience, you can use only a part of the bundle name. If several bundles contain this part in their name then they will all be installed.

Example : install all bundles with name containing "pyth"

telosys#(mymodel.model)>ib pyth
Installing 3 bundle(s) from GitHub...
 . 'python-persistence-sqlalchemy' : installed.
 . 'python-web-mvc-bottle' : installed.
 . 'python-web-rest-bottle' : installed.

If you are using a proxy to access Internet, you must configure it in the project configuration file. Use the "ecfg" command to edit the configuration file and set the properties for "Network proxy configuration"

List templates bundles available in the project

To list the bundles available in the current Telosys project use the lb (List Bundles) command.

The syntax is :

  • lb list all bundles

  • lb bundle-name-part list all bundles containing the given name-part in their name

Example : list all bundles

3 bundle(s) :
 . python-persistence-sqlalchemy
 . python-web-mvc-bottle
 . python-web-rest-bottle

Example : list bundles with name containing "sql"

telosys#(mymodel.model)>lb sql
1 bundle(s) :
 . python-persistence-sqlalchemy

Select a bundle of templates

Use the bcommand to show the current bundle or select a new one.

Example : select the bundle having "sqlalch" in its name

telosys#(mymodel.model)>b sqlalch
Current bundle is now 'python-persistence-sqlalchemy'

Once you have defined a current model and a current bundle the Telosys prompt looks like this: telosys#(model-name)[bundle-name]>
