Lovely IO

Lovely IO is the next-gen front-side development platform.

In a short, it's like rubygems + rails, only for the front-side development.

See the official site and screencast for more information and usage examples.

What's In Here

In this repo you can find the following things

  • cli/ - the lovely CLI tools, server and so on
  • stl/ - the STL library of official modules
  • ui/ - the official UI library modules


Lovely IO console tools work with node.js and available via the npm service

npm install -g lovely

After that, you'll need to run the following

lovely bootstrap

That will create all the necessary files and directories and auto-install all the STL packages in your ~/.lovely/ folder.

Also, add the following into your ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bashrc file

export NODE_PATH=/usr/local/share/npm/lib/node_modules:$NODE_PATH

This will allow lovely test command work correctly


You can uninstall all the stuff from your computer by calling

lovely implode

Also, you can do that manually via simple shell command

rm ~/.lovelyrc && rm -rf ~/.lovely
