Don’t Think About Redundant Stuff

Templates are a major part of my SuiteScript development toolset; they make it so I don’t even have to think about the simple, redundant stuff that comes with writing SuiteScript.

I use templates to eliminate the need to write module headers, module output statements, function headers, and other common, repetitive patterns I follow. This way, I can focus solely on designing and writing the important code, rather than worrying about whether I used the right JSDoc tag in the boilerplate.

The templates I use for SuiteScript development are open-source:

If these don’t match your style, that’s fine, but I highly recommend you use templates to expedite the creation of Scripts and conserve your focus for the actual business portions of your code.
