Web app generator Build Status

Yeoman generator that scaffolds out a front-end web app using gulp for the build process


Please see our gulpfile for up to date information on what we support.

  • CSS Autoprefixing
  • Built-in preview server with BrowserSync
  • Automagically compile Sass with libsass
  • Automagically lint your scripts
  • Map compiled CSS to source stylesheets with source maps
  • Awesome image optimization
  • Automagically wire-up dependencies installed with Bower
  • The gulpfile makes use of ES2015 features by using Babel

For more information on what this generator can do for you, take a look at the gulp plugins used in our package.json.


Keep in mind that libsass is feature-wise not fully compatible with Ruby Sass. Check out this curated list of incompatibilities to find out which features are missing.

If your favorite feature is missing and you really need Ruby Sass, you can always switch to gulp-ruby-sass and update the styles task in gulpfile accordingly.

Getting Started

  • Install dependencies: npm install --global yo gulp bower
  • Install the generator: npm install --global generator-gulp-webapp
  • Run yo gulp-webapp to scaffold your webapp
  • Run gulp serve to preview and watch for changes
  • Run bower install --save <package> to install frontend dependencies
  • Run gulp serve:test to run the tests in the browser
  • Run gulp to build your webapp for production
  • Run gulp serve:dist to preview the production build



  • --skip-welcome-message Skips Yeoman's greeting before displaying options.
  • --skip-install-message Skips the the message displayed after scaffolding has finished and before the dependencies are being installed.
  • --skip-install Skips the automatic execution of bower and npm after scaffolding has finished.
  • --test-framework=<framework> Either mocha or jasmine. Defaults to mocha.
  • --no-babel Scaffolds without Babel support (this only applies to app/scripts, you can still write ES2015 in the gulpfile)
