Takeaway web apps.
Rec Room is a Node.js utility belt you can wear to build client side web apps. It includes:
- Brick to add components like appbars and buttons to your UI.
- Ember for your app's controllers, models, and views.
- Handlebars to write your app's templates.
- Grunt to run the tasks for your app, including building for production.
- I18n.js to localize your app.
- Mocha to test your app.
- Sass to write your CSS.
- Yeoman to scaffold new code for your app's models and templates.
Rec Room is a work-in-progress; please file bugs and we will work to fix them, but also expect errors as it is still very much in-flux!
You need Node.js installed. Then just run:
npm install -g recroom
To get the
recroom binary installed on your system.
Create a new Rec Room app using
recroom new app-name. The app will be created
in a new folder inside the current directory.
You can run your skeleton app right away in a web browser using
recroom build will compile the distributable build of your app to the
folder in your project. This version includes the production version of some
libraries (like the production build of Ember, which--for example--includes
less debug output in the console) and heavily minifies your source files
(including minifying your HTML).
You can deploy your app to GitHub Pages using
Sass: Recroom uses node-sass, which handles Sass compilation with libsass. Libsass is currently lacking some of the latest features from the popular Sass Ruby Gem. See Reporting Sass compilation and syntax issues
