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.

Would you mind share them?

How about views generator?

I would like that as well.
