Here's where things are right now for Yeoman in NetBeans IDE. First, as pointed out yesterday, just like Maven projects from archetypes, you can create HTML5 applications from Yeoman:
When Next is clicked above, all the Yeoman generators that have been installed are shown, exactly as when you run "yo --help" on the command line:
(A feature I'd like to have would be to either have hardcoded or somehow generated the Yeoman generators that are listed here and then to let the user select the ones they'd like to have installed for them via NetBeans.)
(Also need to work more on the responses required from the generators. Right now, Enter is clicked automatically and the default generator is run.)
When Next is clicked above, the name of the selected generator determines the suggested project name of the application that will be generated.
When Finish is clicked, the generator is run in the location specified above, with the result shown below.
The next step is for me to add an 'nbproject' folder in there, with the correct content, so that the application will be recognized as a NetBeans HTML5 application. And then it will automatically be opened into NetBeans IDE, i.e., as soon as it has been generated via the steps above!
