Template-based File Creation
Template-based source file creation
Illuminated Cloud includes standard file templates for several types of Apex classes and triggers, Visualforce pages and components, Lightning bundle files, static resources, and the metadata files that are created alongside these content files. The standard templates can be configured according to desired standards or conventions, and new file templates can be created to extend this behavior for other purposes.
These templates are used when new files are created in the project. Based on the type of file being created, Illuminated Cloud presents a list of available templates for selection.
The file is created according to the selected template. If appropriate, the companion metadata file is also created. If configured to do so, Illuminated Cloud will also add the newly-created metadata to the metadata subscription and deploy the new file to Salesforce.
