You can add Handlebars helpers in your generator folder by adding

helpers.js
file.

Generator Helpers definition file example:

module.exports = function(Handlebars) {
  Handlebars.registerHelper('date', (function() {
    var date = new Date();
    return function(options) {
      return date.toString();
    };
  })());
};

So now you can use it in your generators source file. Example:

# Generation Date : {{date}}

You can use it programmatically too, from node.js:

var scaffolt = require('scaffolt');

scaffolt('view', 'user', function(error) { console.log('Scaffolded!'); });

scaffolt('model', 'cart', { generatorsPath: 'custom-gens-dir', parentPath: 'custom-app/models/carting.js', revert: true }, function(error) { console.log('Reverted!'); });
