Features

  • Sass + css globbing + autoprefixer

  • Browserify + babel+ ngannotate

  • Assets management

  • Development environment

    • Webserver with livereload
    • Watching files for changes and full, fast, incremental rebuilds
    • Unit tests with karma
    • Eslint
  • Production environment

    • js, css, jpg, png and svg minification
    • cache busting
  • Continous integration

    • build + eslint + tests with guaranteed non-zero exit status on error

Why not just write tasks yourself?

To not repeat yourself, and to get rid of some nasty edge cases:

  • tasks immune to errors resulting crashed watchers
  • tasks parametrized with tasks modes
  • tasks cannot run few times simultaneously after few quick changes
  • in develop mode if task detect some errors it will hold execution until all errors will be corrected and then it will let the rest of dependent tasks run
  • tasks in prod mode always returns non-zero exit status on error

Requirements

You need:

nodejs

If you've never used Node or npm before, you'll need to install Node. If you use homebrew, do:

brew install node

Otherwise, you can download and install it manually.

updated npm

Update npm by running

npm update npm -g

node-gyp dependencies

Node-gyp is used to compile native extensions to node. Refill for angular does not require node-gyp directly, but it is installed by its dependencies. To install this dependencies properly you need to satisfy node-gyp requirements. Go to node-gyp github page and follow instructions in "You will also need to install" paragraph in README file (python etc.)

Installation

Refill for AngularJS is available through npm

npm install --save gulp refill-angular

Put this line in your gulpfile.js

require('refill-angular').init();

This will create a set of tasks in gulp, which you will be able to use from console

Development flow

How you can use Refill gulp tasks to work with Your AngularJS project

write code and test

Run in project root directory

./node_modules/.bin/gulp

or

./node_modules/.bin/gulp default

This task will

  • clean whole output dir (dev/)
  • bundle all your js with browserify and watch file changes with watchify
  • bundle all your styles with sass, css globbing and autoprefix
  • run eslint and rerun on any js file change
  • run tests with karma and browserify and watch file changes with watchify
  • copy your assets and copy any newly created asset since then
  • copy Your index.html and inject styles, scripts, angular main module name into it. Redo on index.html change.
  • start gulp-webserver with livereload
  • open Your default web browser with proper address.

Write some code, enjoy the results

lint your code

Run in project root directory

./node_modules/.bin/gulp lint-js

eslint will try to fix all found errors

check everything

Run in project root directory

./node_modules/.bin/gulp ci

This task will fail if

  • code isn't eslinted
  • any of karma tests will fail
  • build fail (sass, browserify)

You definitely should add this task to your CI server. This task can be splitted into stages. ./node_modules/.bin/gulp ci is an equivalent for

./node_modules/.bin/gulp ci-static-analysis
./node_modules/.bin/gulp ci-test
./node_modules/.bin/gulp ci-build

commit :D

git commit -m 'awesome code'

Production flow

installing

npm install

building

./node_modules/.bin/gulp build

This task will

  • clean whole output dir (dist/)
  • bundle all your js with browserify and minify with uglifyjs
  • bundle all your styles with sass, css globbing, autoprefix and minify with csso
  • copy your assets and minify all .png/.jpg/.gif/.svg
  • copy Your index.html, minify html and inject styles, scripts, angular main module name into it.
  • Do cache busting

Apache/Nginx

Point it to ./dist directory, and configure your server to fallback to index.html if file not found (to work with router html5 mode)

Directory structure

  • dist/ - build output
  • dev/ - dev output

Files

.gitignore

You should probably add this entries in .gitignore file

npm-debug.log
node_modules/
dist/
dev/
reports/

src/index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html ng-app="<%= angularMainModuleName %>" lang="en">
 
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title></title>
</head>
 
<body ng-controller="appNameController">
 
  <!-- inject:js -->
  <!-- endinject -->
</body>
 
</html>

src/index.js

'use strict';
 
var angular = require('angular');
 
angular.module('app', [])
  .controller('appNameController', /** @ngInject */ function() {
  });

API

If you get 'task not found' error from gulp, you probably should pass gulp to init

require('refill-angular').init(undefined, undefined, require('gulp'));

options

You can pass options object to init function

require('refill-angular').init(options, outputDirsMap);

Make sure you understand how Refill works

Default options

We recommend using as much default options as possible. They are based on our experience with AngularJS and they set up some solid structure for your project.

}

output dirs map

You can pass output dirs map object to init function. This object maps current environment to output dir.

require('refill-angular').init(options, outputDirsMap);

Default output dirs map

{
  prod: 'dist/',
  test: 'test/'
}

mode

You can retrieve mode object from refill

var mode = require('refill-angular').mode;

This object is shared across all tasks and it define mode of operation.

Default mode

{
  env: 'dev',
  watch: true,
  angularMainModuleProdFallback: false
}

Some of the mode properties can be changed on run by environment variables

REFILL_ENV=prod REFILL_WATCH=false ./node_modules/.bin/gulp css

which is equivalent to

bamboo_REFILL_ENV=prod bamboo_REFILL_WATCH=false ./node_modules/.bin/gulp css

Some tasks overwrites mode
