    How to install

    How to use

    Creating apps

    You can create meteor apps by using orion create, which downloads the Meteor Boilerplate. --blank or -b let's you create a blank app (same as calling orion init).

    orion create meteorApp
    orion create -b blankApp

    If you have a proxy, you need to set the http_proxy variable to access the repository.

    export http_proxy=http://myproxy.net:myport

    Reset apps

    You can reset the app to remove all the default code.

    orion reset

    Initializing exiting apps

    Initialize Meteor Apps for use with scaffolding with following command.

    cd existingMeteorApp
    orion init

    The resulting file orion-config.json under private/ has existing templates, list them by calling orion generate. The configuration has following structure.

    {
        "generate" : {
            "templateName" : {
                "default" : {
                    "desc" : "description for template",
                    "files" : ["private/templates/someFile.html"],
                    "variables" : [
                        {
                            "name" : "templateVar",
                            "desc" : "templateQuestion"
                        }
                    ]
                },
                "otherProfileName" : {
                    "files" : ["private/templates/someOtherFile.html"]
                }
            }
        }
    }

    The template file also has one required line of configuration, which looks like following.

    <!-- { "path" : "client/views/__templateVar__.html" } -->
    <template name="__templateVar__">
        <h1>This is the content</h1>
    <template>

    You can use the variables in the template, as long as the json configuration for the path is on the first line it'll recognize it.

    Generating files

    You can create views, routes, models and more in the default configuration or change it and add more templates.

    orion generate view
    orion generate routes

    Change profiles

    The default profiles in the configuration are es6 and coffee, which generates other kind of files. You can also define your own profiles.

    orion set-profile coffee
