✨ Creating Bricks

In this section, we'll take a look at how to use the mason new command to create your own bricks.

🚀 Overview

The mason new command allows us to create a new, custom brick template in the current working directory:

mason new example
✓ Generated 5 file(s). (34ms)
created example/brick.yaml
created example/
created example/
created example/LICENSE
created example/__brick__/

✍️ Custom Description

We can use the --desc option to specify a custom brick description when creating a new brick via mason new:

mason new example --desc "My awesome brick"

🗂 Custom Output Directory

Similarly to mason make, we can specify a custom output directory when creating a new brick via the -o option:

mason new example -o ./path/to/brick
