I’m very happy today to release a preview of a project I have been working on for several months under the working title “SilverSmith.” SilverSmith is a framework for building SilverStripe sites that provides code, template, and content generation tools using a YAML configuration file. I have been using this tool on several projects and it has saved me volumes of production time by cutting out all of the repetitive tasks involved in building a SilverStripe. I’m really excited to share it with the community and get some feedback.

I have to say, well done, that is bloody impressive, that will make the whole process so much easier.

Can't wait to play.
