The Yeoman Monthly Digest
Allo! Allo! This past month saw the Yeoman community grow to 472 generators. We’re excited to see so much passion for project scaffolding and are working on some new features to enable generators to extend and build on top of each other.
We’ll talk more about this soon, but for now here’s this month’s round-up of featured articles, generators and team blogs. We hope they’re useful!

yo digest, happy scaffolding and don't be afraid - Yeoman is here to help, not replace you :D
I’m genuinely scared that one day I’m going to be replaced by a @yeoman generator. - I Am Developer (@iamdevloper) February 7, 2014
