Generates scaffolding for new models for Spring Boot projects

Project Description
# Plaster

Project to bring similar functionality found in Rails to the Spring Boot platform. Currently only supports maven-enabled projects.

For Example:

> plaster g scaffold User name:string age:integer

Will create the following files:
* Model - root/model/
* Repository - root/repository/
* Service - root/service/
* Controller - root/controller/

The root is calculated upon script start. For example, if being run on a project with the following in `pom.xml`:


the root will be `src/main/com/example/`

### Installation
Python's `setuptools` must be installed to install Plaster. If on an ubuntu system, use the following:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

Otherwise, explore [setuptools]( to find how to install for your system.
Then download Plaster onto your machine, navigate to the directory in which it was downloaded and run:

python install

### Customization
Per default, Plater will auto-discover necessary configurations and then use best-practices to decide
where and how to generate files. However, if you would like to customize the generation of the files, Plater
gives you the ability to alter defaults by placing `bootgen.yml` in the root of the project. The following configurations
are supported:

##### Property `dir`
| Property | Description | Type | Default |
|-------------- |--------------------------------------------- |-------- |---------- |
| model | Directory in which to generate models | String | model |
| repository | Directory in which to generate repositories | String | repository |
| controller | Directory in which to generate controllers | String | controller |
| service | Directory in which to generate services | String | service |

##### Property `lombok`
| Property | Description | Type | Default |
|---------------- |--------------------------------------------- |-------- |---------- |
| enabled | Should we enable generation in lombok mode | Boolean | Is lombok a dependency in `pom.xml`? |

### Lombok Support
Generation of models will change if a lombok dependency is found in `pom.xml`. This will import lombok and annotate
the model differently. For example:

public class Example {

@GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
private Integer id;

public Integer getId() {

public void setId(Integer id) { = id;

<!-- separate -->

import lombok.AllArgsConstructor;
import lombok.Builder;
import lombok.Data;
import lombok.NoArgsConstructor;

public class Example {

@GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
private Integer id;
