Project Setup Tool
A downloadable tool
The Development of this Tool was Inspired by Indie Pixel and his Tutorial Video Series creating a Project Setup Tool for Unity.
Here is a Link to his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7P6olyswpgJlElZA6RXUNQ
The Project Setup Tool is a handy tool that will allow you to easily Create your new Projects Default Folders at a Click of a Button.
The Project Setup Tool comes with a Json Editor Tool and of course the Project Setup Tool.
The Json Editor Tool will allow you to easily Create Custom Json Files. However, for the purpose of this tool it is used to create a Custom Folder Structure Settings Json File. Feel free to use the Json Editor Tool however you please.
The Project Setup Tool window is where all the magic happens. You only need to Drag and Drop your Folder Structure Json File that you created and Click the Create Folders button to have your projects Default Folders Created.
Json Editor Tool:
You can Create a new Json file when using the Json Editor Tool. This file can be used to save your Json folder structure settings.
When creating your custom folder structure Json settings, you only need the String and Lists Types.
The String Type represents a Folder or Sub Folder.
The List Type represents a Folder with Sub Folders. Note that you are allowed to have Nested Lists. This will create a Folder with Many Nested Sub Folders of Different Levels.
Once you have completed editing your folder structure settings, you can save it to a Json file using the "Save Json" Button. Note that this operation will overwrite any contents of the Json file that was selected.
Currently the Json Editor Tool can ONLY Create Json files and CANNOT Edit already existing Json files. This feature may be added in a future release.
So if you wish to Edit your Json folder structures file, you will have to do so manually.
It would be wise to save your Json settings file for future use.
Project Setup Tool:
This tool is Super Simple. All you need to do here is Drag and Drop your Json folder structure settings file onto the required slot and Click the Create Folders Button.
If your Json file has no Errors, your Projects Folders will be Created Correctly.
A ReadMe has been included with the Tool if you wish to know more, otherwise check out the helpful YouTube Video for a quick 101.
I would like to thank a close friend of mine Kearan, the Creator of the Json Editor Tool.
