Simplify Source Generator creation the RoslynGenerator template

I’m currently writing my own Source generator which can become quite challenge. Yesterday I talked about RoslynQuoter as one of the tools that helped me along the way. Today I want to show you an easy way to get started thanks to the F0.Templates project.

Start by installing the F0.templates using dotnet new --install F0.Templates:

Now create a new project using the installed RoslynGenerator template dotnet new roslyngenerator.

This will create not only a SourceGenerator project but also a unit and integration tests project and a benchmark project:
