A command line scaffolding tool for Meteor applications. It automatically creates project structure, files and boilerplate code. The project structure mimics that of the EventedMind publishing platform.
Install the em command line tool globally so you can use it from any project directory.
$ npm install -g meteor-em
You'll want to have Iron Router
installed. Also, this command line tool just handles scaffolding for now.
meteor are different command line tools. Hopefully, sometime in the near
future we can enhance the
meteor command line tool to be pluggable!
em from the command line and you'll see the various top level
commands. Then type
em generate or
em g to see a list of generators.
You can initialize your project structure like this:
$ em init
A config file will be generated in your project —
.em/config.json, and you will
be able to specify what types of files will be created for you when you generate
a view resource. You can also specify alternative file extensions, e.g. .jade, .sass, and .coffee:
em init you can also pass in options to save some time.
$ em init --ir --css=false --js=coffee
This will install Iron Router, set css file creation to false (css files will not be created when generating a new view), and set your preferred js file extensions to .coffee.
--css=sass will change css file extensions to .less and .scss respectively.
Once your project is initialized and your config.json file is set up, you can begin generating various resources. Here are a few examples:
$ em g:scaffold todos$ em g:view todos/todo_item$ em g:controller webhooks/stripe --where "server"$ em g:route todos/todo_show
This is an early alpha project and any thoughts and contributions are welcome.
