Description

While I personally dislike the term "scaffolding," I think that adding the functionality of ScaffoldScript to django-admin.py/manage.py would give users a solid place to start for CRUD generic views. While all forms are different, I think this is a great place for people to get started.

Thoughts?

This functionality doesn't below in the django-admin.py/manage.py but as a seperate script.

This has been discussed before, it was agreed that django follows the principals of python
http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/0_90/design_philosophies/ with the key term being 'explicit is better than implicit' and that django wouldn't contain this functionality.

Not sure who the anonymous person was who closed this, but I think it's worth reopening.

I did notice the script at http://code.djangoproject.com/wiki/ScaffoldScript that appears to provide this functionality. Does this script just need further review before adding it to the Django tools, or is there additional work that needs to be done?

I am +1 on "scaffolding" as it reduces the entry barrier and maybe helpful in generating obvious parts. I am not sure if ScaffoldScript is the right solution, but we have to have something along these lines.

if scaffolding == code_generation and code_generation == bad:
    mark_as_wontfix()
else:
    check_sanity_level()
