The scaffold generator builds out the directory structure required when adding new skills, protocols, and connections to the agent.
For example, create a new AEA project.
aea create my_agent cd my_agent
Then, cd into your project directory and scaffold your project skill, protocol, or connection.
You will see the directories filled out with the files required and the skill, protocol, or connection registered in the top level
Scaffold a skill
aea scaffold skill my_skill
Scaffold a protocol
aea scaffold protocol my_protocol
Scaffold a connection
aea scaffold connection my_connection
After running the above commands, you will have the fully constructed file system required by the AEA.
