    Mobile Build Tool

    The tool is a set of libraries and tasks to help you install, configure, build, and maintain your mobile project based on Backbone.js and jQuery Mobile. This project is based on wonderful library called Grunt.

    The tool is opinionated. AMD is popular these days but we decided to keep it 'simple' and use $script.js for loading resources in development. During release everything is minified and bundled into one file ready for production.

    By default MBT currently includes:

    Install:

    npm install -g mbt
    

    Generate new js project:

    mkdir PROJECT_FOLDER
    cd PROJECT_FOLDER
    mbt init:project
    npm install ./
    

    Generate new coffee project

    For people who prefer CoffeeScript

    mkdir PROJECT_FOLDER
    cd PROJECT_FOLDER
    mbt init:project:coffee
    npm install ./
    

    Generated project's folder structure

    • assets - compressed css and JavaScript files
    • css
    • images
    • js
    • collections - backbone collections
    • config - app config, namespace, environments
    • helpers - app helpers
    • models - backbone models
    • vendor - vendor dependecies
    • views - backbone views
    • app.js - starting point for the app
    • files.js - array of paths to app source files
    • init.js - loads dependecies and initializes JQM, PhoneGap
    • router.js - jQM router
    • templates.js - compiled templates from templates folder
    • coffee - similar structure to js folder if coffee is your cup of tea...
    • templates - project templates compiled into js/templates.js
    • views - jQuery Mobile pages appended into body element in index.html
    • index.html

    Watch for changes in templates, views and styles:

    grunt watch
    

    Templates will be compiled into one JavaScript file called templates.js.

    Views will be minified and appended to body element in index.html.

    CSS files will be minified and compiled into one file called assets/app.css.

    CoffeeScript files will be compiled into corresponding files under js folder.

    Run specs:

    grunt jasmine
    

    Release for PhoneGap

    grunt release
    

    Release task lints, minifies and packages all JavaScript files listed in files.js file into one file: assets/app.js.

    It prepends cordova.js (the PhoneGap source file) to files list before minifaction. After minifications app.css, app.js and images are copied into phonegap/iphone/www/ and phonegap/android/assets/www folders and are ready for PhoneGap.

    TODO

    • command line generator for models, collections, views
    • better release task to allow for releasing into different envs (dev, test, prod)
    • add support for different templating systems
