For more information on what generator-webapp can do for you, take a look at the Grunt tasks used in our package.json.

  • Install: npm install -g generator-webapp
  • Run: yo webapp
  • Run grunt for building and grunt server for preview
  • --skip-install

    Skips the automatic execution of bower and npm after scaffolding has finished.

  • --test-framework <framework>

    Defaults to mocha. Can be switched for another supported testing framework like jasmine.

  • --coffee

    Add support for CoffeeScript.

Note: We are regularly asked whether we can add or take away features. If a change is good enough to have a positive impact on all users, we are happy to consider it.

If not, generator-webapp is fork-friendly and you can always maintain a custom version which you npm install && npm link to continue using via yo webapp or a name of your choosing.
