Hmm, it seems that scaffolding code generation will be a bit
different, since it is done after the application has been
generated (it require a model / table structure as input). Can
gen generate a structure on the top and based on existing
I found out that - at least for me, who is newbie both in Nitro
and Ruby - learn by good example is much much easier than
reading any explanatory / guiding tutorials. And scaffolding
codes is basically a "super example", example that tailored
closer to the user's need. So it even much much easier to learn
from scaffolding codes, 10 times easier than reading tutorials.

How about views generator?
