Build Status npm version

Generates a more verbose can-connect supermodel, which allows you to more easily customize behaviors.

Using the generator

To add this generator to your DoneJS application, run

donejs add connect-model

Example output

If you run the above command and answer with these options:

? The singular name for your model (e.g. order) order
? What is the URL endpoint? /orders
? What is the property name of the id? id
   create src/models/fixtures/order.js
   create src/models/order.js
   create src/models/order_test.js

You'll get this output for order.js.
