Hey monkeys, so we are in a weird state where we "offcially" dropped the SDK.
Paradoxically, the SDK hasn't been that well since this annouce thanks to the tremendous work of @Darkchaos and all the monkeys working on it.
But still... We still want a lightweight tool suite, agnostic to any IDE and based on standard builds systems like gradle and maven. Something closer to what libgdx has.
We are working in the underground on several projects that are not ready to be made public for now, but first things first I present you Bootmonkey:
When creating a new JME project (trust me I do that a lot), I was tired of pulling the template git repo, changing names, cleaning unnecessary files etc...
So I made a small app that does that for you:
So what does it do:
It pulls a template repo in the given directory, change project Name, package name, and voilà, you're good to go.
The template is pretty much the one @pspeed made with gradle.
The templating is very basic and driven by an yml file that has to be in the template project root.
The nice part is that you can make your own template repo and still use the app. So if you want to have a maven template...go ahead.

realeases : https://github.com/Nehon/bootmonkey/releases
It's java 8 (so you'll need that to run it). It's a self executable jar for now, I'm trying to dig a nice solution to make native executables for each platform.
This is still in my personal repo, but this will migrate at some point to JME repo. This is a very early version, It could do a lot more things, but yeah for now I'd like to see if if works as intended.
So monkeys !! could you try that up?
