Generate a frontend for Sails.


A frontend generator for use with the Sails command-line interface. This generator creates client side assets and files with grunt configurations and tasks that manage the front end assets for a sails project. To see more infomation about how it works look here.

Certain generators are installed by default in Sails, but they can be overridden. Check the Sails docs for information on installing generator overrides / custom generators.

$ sails generate frontend
var path = require('path');
var sailsgen = require('sails-generate');
var scope = {
    rootPath: path.resolve(__dirname)
sailsgen(require('sails-generate-frontend'), scope, function (err) {
    if (err) throw err;
    // It worked. 

To get started quickly and see this generator in action, run the bin/index.js script:

$ git clone YOUR_FORK_OF_THIS_REPO sails-generate-frontend-fork
cd sails-generate-frontend-fork
$ npm install
$ node ./bin

bin/index.js is a simple script, bundled only for convenience, that runs the generator with hard-coded scope variables. Please feel free to modify that file however you like! Also see for more information on overriding/enhancing generators.
