Baboon Web Toolkit, modular fullstack web application framework for single-page realtime apps.
Baboon is an open source web toolkit for creating Single Page Real-time applications. It combines tools, libraries, own developments as well as existing frameworks into a complete, ready for immediate use toolkit. It covers all activities necessary for the development process for the creation of a single page real-time applications.
Baboon takes care of the complete setup of an immediately usable architecture for SPAs and also provides the basic functionality of the application. In addition to simple things like LESS-based design, it also includes the complete implementation of a websocket transport for the real-time communication inside the application. Last but not least the availability of many modules makes Baboon a full SPA-framework. All that is left to you is taking care of your business logic - the rest is done by Baboon.
The installation of a Baboon project is very simple. However, some preparatory work is needed.
Baboon need only NodeJS on the respective system. In production mode on server with activated rights system following stack is desirable:
Such a stack including NodeJS version management, RedisIO, MongoDb and other tools can be found here: the baboon-stack covers an easy-to-use one-click setup for Windows, Linux and Mac. The baboon-stack is suitable with the NodeJS version management also ideal for development.
Without using baboon-stack, you need install Baboon's global dependencies. Skip this section when using Baboon-stack.
Linux / Mac:
$ sudo npm install -g karma bower grunt-cli yo generator-baboon
$ npm install -g karma bower grunt-cli yo generator-baboon
You can simply create a Baboon project with a yeoman generator-baboon and start with grunt serve. The application starts in development mode with live reload functionality that monitors the directories for any changes. If changes are detected, a new build is created, the server is restarted if necessary, and the browser is updated.
$ mkdir my-new-project && cd $_ $ yo baboon [app-name] $ grunt serve
Look out for more information in the sample application or check out the documentations on our web site.
Instead of us handing out a formal style guide, simply stick to the existing programming style. Please create descriptive commit messages. We use a git hook to validate the commit messages against these rules. Easily expand Baboon with your own extensions or changes in the functionality of Baboon itself. Use this workflow:
We will check the tests, the example and test coverage. In case your changes are useful and well tested, we will merge your requests.
This section describes how to set up your development environment to build and test Baboon with the example app.
