Minimalistic node package generator

Node.js minimalistic package generator

This is a generator for Yeoman. Unlike many other generators this one will not include bunch of frameworks, config files and folders. Running yo n will generate really simple folder structure:

In fact it will delegate generation work to npm init itself, and then will do smart initializations, based on your package.json. This includes:

  • Initialize GitHub project for your package
  • Create proper LICENSE file based on your package.json
  • Include test dependency based on your scripts/test of package.json
  • Make initial commit to GitHub

Typing yo n is two times shorter than npm init

Before you can use this generator, make sure you have both Yeoman and generator-n installed:

npm install -g generator-n yo
