appmaker

appmaker

helper script for creating production build of web application (compile less to css, optimize js using requirejs optimizer, etc)

Installation

 
npm install appmaker
 

Usage

create your own makeApp.js build script (e.g. at root directory of your project), define your tasks and use helper methods within them, e.g.

 
#!/usr/bin/env node
 
var appMaker = require('./lib/2do2go/node_utils/appMaker'),
    path = require('path');
 
var tasks = {};
tasks.build = function() {
    tasks.clean();
    tasks.compileLess();
    tasks.requirejsOptimize();
};
 
tasks.compileLess = function() {
    appMaker.compileLess({files: 'static/css/*.less'});
};
 
tasks.requirejsOptimize = function() {
    appMaker.requirejsOptimize({
        modulesDir: 'static/js/views/',
        baseUrl: 'static/js/',
        dir: 'static/scripts',
        mainConfigFile: 'views/template/requirejs/development.js'
    });
};
 
tasks.clean = function() {
    appMaker.clean(
        ['static/scripts', 'static/js/sharedmodules/*.js', 'static/css/*.css'],
        '-Rf'
    );
};
 
appMaker.process(tasks);
 
 

after that you can call ./makeApp.js (don't forget to make him executable via chmod +rx) to see available commands
