Another take on an Ember generator for Yeoman


A different take on an Ember generator for yeoman.

  • Removed bowerrc in favor of default bower_components folder
  • Make sure you have yo installed: npm install -g yo
  • Install the generator: npm install -g generator-anthracite
  • Run: yo anthracite
  • To generate additional modules run: yo anthracite:module <module name>

There is a global components directory where you can put all of your custom ember components "app/components".

There is a global mixins directory as well at "app/mixins".

You can namespace your mixins (so they don't conflict with anything) by editing "app.js" and adding:

`App.Mixins = Ember.Namespace.create()`

Each module will automatically namespace its templates like this:

  • "app/modules/module/templates/module.hbs" => "module"
  • "app/modules/module/templates/index.hbs" => "module/index"
  • "app/modules/module/templates/foo.hbs" => "module/foo"
  • "app/modules/module/templates/foo/bar.hbs" => "module/foo/bar"

or partials like:

  • "app/modules/module/partials/partial.hbs" => "module/_partial"

Each module may contain many:

  • routes
  • controllers
  • views
  • templates
  • partials

The main module contains non namespaced templates. This is probably the place where you would want to put your basic pages like:

  • About
  • Contact

Thanks to generator-ember and generator-charcoal as I used a lot of their code and configuration as reference.
