    What's this?

    This is a yeoman generator for making express & js applications. It's geared towards react & redux / es6, but you can use it for making general single page apps too. There is a full suite of watching, livereloading, compilation and related gulp tasks. The express server renders html as you would expect, and they can be found in the server/views folder.

    It is a work in progress, and pull requests are welcome as long as they remain in the spirit of the generator.

    Features

    • Server rendered redux & react
    • HTTP / HTTPS self signed localhost dev environment including live reload
    • full suite of gulp tasks
    • watchify accelerated browserify builds
    • libsass sass compilation
    • eslint rules
    • scss lint rules
    • babel es2015 / react / object spread
    • etc

    Installation

    Install Yeoman - npm install -g yo.

    Install generator globally: npm install -g generator-cairn

    Check everything is working: yo --help - should see a list of generators, and cairn in there too.

    Usage

    Make a new directory, cd into it.

    yo cairn - give the project a name (it uses the directory name as default).

    Yeoman will perform git init and npm install for you - this takes a while, so be prepared for a short wait.

    gulp - default task runs dev server, watches and builds.

    USE_HTTPS=true gulp for running a https localhost server
