The current Plugins SDK uses shell scripts to execute commands. It also only supports creating plugins right now. This command line tool will be the interface for our new Plugins SDK. This tool will be be a core with commands that can be added (by both Liferay and community) similar to the way git works.
The initial version will allow for creating Liferay plugin projects and creating Liferay plugins.
Jars will be fetched automatically.
Later we would like to add:
The ability to upgrade your project to a new version.
Download bundles (EE or community editions).
Specify whether you use mvn project structure.
