kowey-generic is a set of templates for small programming projects in single languages. The goal is to provide a simple way to make highly portable and nicely distributable software that "just works". These templates allow you produce packages that the user simply downloads and runs with no mess, fuss, or CLASSPATH nonsense (under Java).
These templates also help Java developers to adopt better coding habits, as the default build file auto-generates unit test skeletons using JUnitDoclet.
These templates give Latex writers a nice clean structure for their projects and a handy Makefile for distributing their work to others.
Kowey-generic is now managed via darcs, an advanced revision control system which is more powerful than CVS, yet much simpler to use.
Kowey-generic comes with everything it needs; however, if you are using Windows, you will first need to install Cygwin.
