Rápido Stack for RaptorJS


Scaffolding allows for applications to be built very quickly since it can be used to remove many of the tedious steps required to build complex applications. RaptorJS provides design patterns for building client/server JavaScript modules, UI components and webapps that are a strong fit for scaffolding solutions. For that reason, code to support scaffolding has been added to RaptorJS (view source). The usage is described below.



Scaffolding is now supported using the Rápido command line interface and the Rápido stack for RaptorJS

sudo npm install rapido --global
sudo npm install rapido-raptorjs --global

To enable the raptorjs stack for a project, you will need to run the following command:

rap use raptorjs

Create a static webapp (server-less):

cd websites
mkdir my-static-web
cd my-static-web
rap create webapp --static
npm install
node build.js

Create a server webapp for Node (using express) (in-progress):

cd websites
mkdir my-server-web
cd my-server-web
rap create webapp
npm install
node server.js

Creating a UI component:

rap create component ui/buttons/SimpleButton

Creating a page:

rap create page test

Rename/refactor a UI component (in-progress):

rap remame component ui/buttons/SimpleButton ui/buttons/SimpleButtonRenamed

NOTE: All references to the old UI component should be updated.

Clone a UI component (in-progress):

rap clone component ui/buttons/SimpleButton ui/buttons/SimpleButtonCloned

Create a JavaScript AMD module (in-progress):

rap create module test/my-awesome-module


The Rápido stack for RaptorJS supports the following configuration options (defined in rapido.json):

    "scaffold.component.dir": "scaffolds/component",
    "": "scaffolds/page",
    "scaffold.webapp.dir": "scaffolds/webapp",
    "modules.dir": "modules",
    "components.base.dir": "modules",
    "pages.base.dir": "modules/pages",
    "app.rtld.file": "modules/taglibs/app/app.rtld"
