A generator for Yeoman.


This is a Yeoman generator to create a boilerplate express app (written in CoffeeScript) that optionally enables authorized user login with Passport. The resulting app uses Grunt to control development tasks.


First, make sure you have Yeoman installed, with

$ npm install -g yo

From then on, you can get information about Yeoman and your installed generators with

$ yo --help

Then, install this generator with

$ npm install -g generator-express-coffee

Time to actually create your app. Create a directory for the app, and navigate into it. Then, execute the generator.

$ mkdir my_new_app
$ cd my_new_app
$ yo express-coffee:app

Start your app in development environment on port 3000

$ grunt

Run Mocha tests with

$ grunt test

Happy Coding!
