A Brunch skeleton for developing clean Ember applications with CoffeeScript, Stylus, Twitter Bootstrap and Font Awesome

Brunch with Ember and Bootstrap

An up-to-date Brunch skeleton for developing clean Ember applications with ease.

It was based the skeleton from Giovanni Collazo brunch-with-ember-reloaded but is now much more updated and complex now, tho I'd prefer to keep my original source.

  • CoffeeScript - a little language that compiles into JavaScript.
  • Stylus - Expressive, dynamic, robust CSS pre-processor.
  • auto-reload-brunch - Adds automatic browser reloading support to brunch.
  • uglify-js-brunch - Adds UglifyJS support to brunch.
  • keyword-brunch - Adds Keyword support to brunch to replace some variables in the generated sources.

Create a new project using this skeleton:

brunch new gh:huafu/brunch-with-ember-and-bootstrap <appname>
cd <appname>
brunch watch --server

Open http://localhost:3333 on your browser.

To create a production release (smaller vendor files, js and css packed), use the cake build command:

cake build

It'll generate a production ready public and create an archive of it in public.tgz that you can then backup or send to your servers.

You can easily create the API documentation fo your project using:

cake gen-doc

The API documentation will be generated in the apidocs folder. You can change this and other settings in yuidoc.json.

The Ember Data is already included in the project but you need to activate it in the file app/store.coffee.

You can easily disable it by prepending vendor/scripts/ember-data.js with a _, removing it from the config.coffee file and commenting out require 'store' from app/initialize.coffee.

Ember Bootstrap is adding some helpers to use Twitter Bootstrap elements easy with Ember. It comes with Views accessible as Handlebars template helpers too.

This skeleton makes use of scaffolt generators to help you create common files quicker. To use first install scaffolt globally with npm install -g scaffolt. Then you can use the following command to generate files.

scaffolt model <name>              → app/models/Name.coffee
    => App.Name = DS.Model.extend
 
scaffolt view <name>               → app/views/Name.coffee
    => App.NameView = Ember.View.extend
 
scaffolt controller <name>         → app/controllers/Name.coffee
    => App.NameController = Ember.Controller.extend
 
scaffolt objectcontroller <name>   → app/controllers/Name.coffee
    => App.NameController = Ember.ObjectController.extend
 
scaffolt arraycontroller <name>    → app/controllers/Names.coffee
    => App.NamesController = Ember.ArrayController.extend
 
scaffolt route <name>              → app/routes/Name.coffee
    => App.NameRoute = Ember.Route.extend
 
scaffolt template <name>           → app/templates/name.hbs
 
scaffolt component <comp-name>     → app/templates/components/comp-name.hbs
                                   → app/views/components/CompName.coffee
    => App.CompNameComponent = Ember.Component.extend
  • There's a few more commands you can use with scaffolt and also instruction on how to create your own generators, so make sure you check out the docs.
  • Each generator will automatically add the generated files to the corresponding initializer coffee file so that you won't have to add them yourself.

You can write your tests in the test folder, just make sure they are named *_test.coffee. You can customize the test to user PhantomJS, Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Opera on the test/karma.conf.js file. There's a lot of other settings there as well. Run tests with:

cake test

It needs some work to make it ready with Ember, and that will probably come in the next major release.

You have some cake tasks to help you update ember, ember-data and ember-bootstrap. More to come in the future.

# update Ember:
cake update-ember
# update Ember Data:
cake update-ember-data
# update Ember Bootstrap:
cake update-ember-bootstrap
# update Twitter Bootstrap:
cake update-bootstrap
# update Font Awesome:
cake update-font-awesome
# get/update Ember Date:
cake update-ember-date
