Nutrient Packed Morsels


    0.3.2 • Public • Published


    Boilerplate for setting up webpack 2 configuration with hot reloading, babel for es6 modules, react + redux for views and state, and karma + mocha + expect for testing.

    Getting Started

    Download cookiecutter to a global python path

    $ pip install cookiecutter

    In your project directory run

    $ cookiecutter

    Answer the prompts then cd into your newly created project directory.

    Install npm packages

    $ npm install

    Start the server

    $ npm start

    Open up http://localhost:8080 in your browser.

    You will have a React / Redux counter app running with redux dev-tools. See the generated for an explanation of the react / redux project structure.

    You can run the test suite

    $ npm test

    You should also create a new git repo and push it to github

    $ git init
    $ git add .
    $ git commit -m "Init"
    $ git remote add origin
    $ git push -u origin master


    • project_name: Your Project Name
    • repo_name: Name of this projects git repository
    • repo_owner: Your github username
    • static_root: Path to where this projects source code lives, or path to static files directory if integrating into an existing project
    • production_output_path: Path where your compiled bundles should go
    • author_name: Your Name
    • description: A short description of the project for the file
    • version: Project version number
    • existing_project: n if this is a new project and y if you're integrating into an existing project. See the notes below about integrating into an existing project.
    • css_extension: [none, less, sass] - use less or sass to preprocess styles.
    • use_ejs: y if you want to include ejs templates and loaders in the project. Recommended if not using an existing project.

    Integrating into existing projects

    You can chain this into an existing cookiecutter project by installing via the projects ./hooks/ file or just installing it via the command line.

    Using post hooks

    Here is a django project post hook example that chains this through a django cookiecutter project.

    from cookiecutter.main import cookiecutter
          replay=False, overwrite_if_exists=True, output_dir='../',
          checkout=None, no_input=True, extra_context={ 
              'project_name': '{{ cookiecutter.project_name }}', 
              'repo_name': '{{ cookiecutter.repo_name }}', 
              'repo_owner': 'hzdg', 
              'static_root': '{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/static/{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}', 
              'production_output_path': '{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/static/{{ cookiecutter.project_dir }}/dist/', 
              'author_name': '{{ cookiecutter.author_name }}', 
              'description': '{{ cookiecutter.description }}', 
              'version': '{{ cookiecutter.version }}', 
              'existing_project': 'y', 
              'css_extension': 'sass', 
              'use_ejs': 'n'

    The flag existing_project will move/remove some files and dependencies and also add supporting configurations for a django project.

    Using command line

    Just make sure you use the --overwrite-if-exists [ or -f] flag so cookiecutter can work within your existing project structure. You will also probably want to point to your existing projects parent directory and make sure you use the same repo_name as the project directory so your package.json files are installed at the project root.

    cookiecutter -f -output-dir ../
