    Want to Contribute a Template?

    Just fork the repo, add one, and submit a pull request.

    Why do that instead of generators? Because with generator based solutions like Yeoman and Slush, everyone and their grandma has created generators. The plan for Ignite is to have community standardized templates so there's not 50 different angular scaffolds to choose from.


    The plan for Ignite is simple. I want a solution that doesn't scaffold a project for you, but instead scaffolds the structure of a project. Why? Because you'll be able to do things like this...

    ignite scaffold rails
    cd public
    ignite scaffold angular

    instead of...

    ignite scaffold rails-angular

    This allows you to scaffold only the pieces you need and hopefully will give you a solution more specific to your actual needs, instead of installing all the junk someone else thought they needed when they created the generator.

    Advanced Usage

    Using custom templates

    Ignite can be used with user-created templates as well. All you have to do is specify a folder on your file system and use the -d flag when calling the command.

    Simply create the template in a directory

    touch /path/to/my/templates/rails.json

    Create the JSON appropriately, and then run

    ignite scaffold rails -d /path/to/my/templates/


    npm i bc-ignite
