    Generators

    Available generators:

    And more to come based on what we daily need in our expressjs an mongoose development workflows.

    App

    Sets up a new expressjs and mongoose app, generating all the boilerplate you need to get started.

    Example of generating an application:

    $ yo mvp

    Api

    Set up new mongoose model, controller, router and their spec/test boilerplates. To generate a new api invoke yo mvp:api followed with model definition

    Example of generating simple api

    $ yo mvp:api user name:String dob:Date

    Example of generating api with multi name

    $ yo mvp:api item_category name:String dob:Date

    Model

    Set up new mongoose Schema with its spec/test boilerplate and register it to mongoose. To generate new model invoke yo mvp:model with model name and its attributes separated by space.

    Note!: Only mongoose schema types are supported as attributes

    Example of generating simple model

    $ yo mvp:model user name:String dob:Date

    Example of generating model with multi name

    $ yo mvp:model item_category name:String dob:Date

    Example of generating model including refs to other model

    $ yo mvp:model post content:String author:ObjectId:User 

    Controller

    Set up new controller, its actions and an express router. To generate a new controller invoke yo mvp:controller giving its name and actions separated by space.

    Example of generating controller including frontend

    $ yo mvp:controller index create edit

    Middleware

    Set up new express middleware with it test/spec boilerplate. To generate a new express middleware invoke yo mvp:middleware and giving its name.

    Example of generating middleware

    $ yo mvp:middleware guard

    Library

    Set up new nodejs module with it test/spec boilerplate. To generate a new nodejs module invoke yo mvp:lib and giving its name.

    Example of generating library

    $ yo mvp:lib scanner

    Angular

    Set up angular frontend for the provided model definition.

    It will generate the following:

    • model angular factory
    • angular controllers required to manage model
    • ui-router states configuration to manage model
    • html crud views to manage model

    To use yo mvp:angular sub-generator make sure:

    $ yo angular
    • Install all required dependencies to your application:
    $ bower install --save angular-ui-router angular-resource angular-bootstrap
    • Add all required dependencies to your application
    angular
        .module('<moduleName>', [
            ...
            'ui.router',
            'ngResource',
            'ui.bootstrap'
            ...
        ])
    • Add apiEndpoint angular constant into your application main module that will point to the root url of your api.
    ...
        .constant('apiEndpoint', '/')
    ...

    Then, you can continue using it as bellow:

    $ yo mvp:angular User name:String dob:Date
