A custom-built Mongoose generator for Yeoman. The base project has been forked from afj176/generator-mongoose and has been updated with many new features, tests and tweaks to get you full fledged out-of-the-box NodeJS Express API Application up and running, Route vs Model Segregation and much more.
Minimum Node Version : 4.x
Minimum NPM Version : 3.x
Seperation of Concern
Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:
Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.
Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.
$ npm install -g yo
While running through a leafy mongodb field he picked up mongoose.
Generator-Restgoose scaffolds all API Routes, API Objects ( Bussiness Logic), Schema Models, Test Cases, and even Documentation for you with full CRUD functionality.
To install generator-restgoose from npm, run:
$ npm install -g generator-restgoose
Finally, initiate the generator:
$ yo restgoose
It should output a file structure similiar to:
.bowerrc .editorconfig .jshintrc api/ apiObjects/ config/ ... db.js ... lib.js docs/ public/ models/ routes/ ... index.js test/ views/ bower.json Gruntfile.js package.json Readme.md
markdownformatted documentation of each Schema generated through the sub-generator.
Don't forget to checkout the
config/lib.js file which contains many useful stuff (Json Validator, image to Base64 Converter, etc).
Use the Library as
var l = require('../config/lib.js); ( which generates with every sub schema).
Try to use
l.p('Print something'); to log something. This will log to debug.log file.
Logging Two log files are served : debug.log and access.log.
All responses are in valid jSend spec conformed JSON format.
Restgoose Apps look for .localrc file in the root of the project. If the file is found, it switches to development mode(more debugginf options) or else falls back to Production Mode.
On your development Machine, create a file on the project root
.localrc to enable development mode.
$ grunt server
$ grunt prod
Creates all required Model, Controllers, test cases, routes and documentations for a particular Schema. Run the sub generator for schemas:
$ yo restgoose:schema "article|title:String,excerpt:String,content:String,published:Boolean,created:Date"
You're creating a schema for article With the fields: title,excerpt,content,published,created create routes/article.js create models/article.js starting request to schematic for test mock data... create test/test-article.js create doc/article.md
Deletes all files (Model, APi Route, API Object, Doc, Test) for a particular schema. Run the sub generator for deleteschema:
$ yo restgoose:deleteschema "article" --force
N.B. You need to use --force else y=Yeoman will continue asking you to overwrite each file.
You're deleting all files for schema: article force api/article.js force apiObjects/article.js force models/article.js force docs/article.md force test/test-article.js
Enabled Passport + Redis + JWT based Authentication and Authorization for your RESR API server.
$ yo restgoose:auth "auth"
N.B. Run this before creating user model and auth controllers or else, they will be overwritten.
Instantiating Authentication ... create api/auth.js create apiObjects/auth.js create models/user.js create middlewares/passport.js create docs/auth.md create routes/sampleauth.js
You should checkout the
docs/auth.md after issuing this command for complete reference.
Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
