public

Config for web. It will be export to window.project.config

{
    resources: {
        api: '//my-site/api/v1'
    }
}

localhost

Config for development on local device.

webserver

Config for local webserver. May be array of configs for several servers. See node-webserver-lite documentation

{
    root: 'build',
    port: 7200,
    livereload: true
}

manifest

List of resources which will be included to index.html as link or scripts tags. Paths for builded files add to manifest of builded projects. You can see current project manifest (with extra fields) in window.project. For local and builded project uses different manifests.

//localhost manifest 
{
    resources: {
        js: [{ //load require.js 
            'src': 'vendor/requirejs/require.js'
            'data-main': 'main/requireconfig'
        }],
        css: [
            '//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300italic,300,700,600,400&subset=cyrillic-ext,latin-ext',
            'compiled/main/vendor/angularStrap.css', //You can include vendor's styles to vendor module or use it directly: 'vendor/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css' 
            'compiled/main/style.css',
        ]
}
//build manifest 
{
    browsers: [ //you can override default versions of browsers 
        "chrome >= 30",

            'main/common/directives/headerMenu/template.html'
        ],
        css: [

        ],
        /* js: [<project modules are added automatically during build of the project>] */
}

build

Config for build project for final testing and production

copy

copy is a map where keys are Glob-pattern of source files relative to project directory, and values — destination paths or filenames relative to build directory.

//default value of `copy` 
{
    'favicon.ico': 'favicon.ico', //copy file to build directory 
    'files/**': 'files/' //copy folder to build directory. (`files` is value of `filesDir` option) 
}

You can add custom files for copying in your config:

{
    'robots.txt': 'robots.txt'
}

modules

modules is a map with modules configs. Configs from modules merge on corresponding modules with <every module params>

//build 
{
    //every module params 
    styles: [
        'main/import.styl' //add to each module including vendor and common 
    ],
    inlineImgToCss: true,
    includeCss: true,
    uglifyJs: false,
    // 
    
    modules: {
        vendor: {
            //sortIndex: 0, //by default. Vendor loads and runs first 
            includeCss: false
            scripts: [
                'vendor/requirejs/require.js'
            ],
            styles: [
                'compiled/main/vendor/bootstrap.css' //add vendor style to vendor module 
            ],
            uglifyJs: {
                mangle: false //vendor will be uglified 
            }
        },
        common: {
            sortIndex: 1, //Will be load and run second 
            includeCss: false
        }
    }
}

vendor

Has structure like modules. You can compile custom bundles of vendors

//vendor 
{
    angularStrap: { //module name to compiled directory 
        rev: false, //don't uglify module name 
        templateCacheModule: 'angularStrap',
        root: 'vendor/angular-strap/src',
        includeCss: false //it will create a separate file `angularStrap.css` 
        annotate: {
            createMainModule: 'angularStrap',
            add: true,
            rename: [{
                from: '$tooltip',
                to: '$asTooltip'
            }]
        },
        scripts: [
            'helpers/date-parser.js',
            'helpers/date-formatter.js',
            'helpers/dimensions.js',
            'tooltip/tooltip.js',
            'datepicker/datepicker.js'
        ],
        templates: [
            'tooltip/tooltip.tpl.html',
            'datepicker/datepicker.tpl.html'
        ],
        styles: [ //you can include third-party styles to module 
            '../../vendor/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.less'
        ]
    }
