Small cli tool to create react components and its associated files.


  • Create a .summon folder
  • Set your options in .summon/options.js (see option file)
  • Create you're templates inside of .summon/templates (see template files)


npm summon <ComponentPath> [-t <tags>]

<ComponentPath> specifies the path to the component with the components name as last path segment

By default, summon will just create files whos tag is contained inside of the tagsDefault option. This value can be overwritten by the -t <tags|comma-sepearated> flag (e.g. -t index,style,story).

option file

You're options reside in .summon/options. An default structur for the file can be found in summon-components/src/defaults.json.

option overview:

"srcPath": <string> // defines the src path inside of you're project (e.g. `src` or `app`).
"component": {
  "tagsDefault": <array|strings>, // defines which tags will be used when non are passed as cli argument
  "vars": <object>, // custom template variables
  "files": [  // describe the possible file options
      "tag": <string>, // identifger for the file (available in template and can be used as filter in the cli)
      "template": <string> // path to the template file (inside of `.summon/templates`)
      "target": <string/handlebars> // target path for the generated file, handlebars can be used (see [template variables](#template-variables))
