By Addy Osmani at

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!
