    Quick start

    The only development dependency of this project is Node.js. So just make sure you have it installed. Then type few commands known to every Node developer...

    git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/kflash/sikky.git
    cd sikky
    # install the project's dependencies 
    npm install
     
    # dev build 
    npm run build:dev
    # prod build 
    npm run build:prod

    ... and boom! You have it all setup for you!

    Workflow

    • npm start - runs a web server on localhost:3000 and updates on changes using HMR
    • npm run build - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle both for development and production
    • npm run build:dev - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle for development
    • npm run build:prod - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle for production
    • npm run build:finale - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle for production with Rollup and Bublé
    • npm run build:finale:prod - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle for production with Rollup and Bublé
    • npm run build:finale:prod - transpile down to ES5 and builds a bundle for production with Rollup and Bublé
    • npm run debug - debug task used with the VSCode editor.
    • npm run cleanup - remove the dist, coverage and build folders
    • npm run remove:build - remove the build folder
    • npm run remove:dist - removed the dist folder
    • npm run lint - validates everything
    • npm run lint:src - validates all source files
    • npm run lint:tests - validates all test files
    • npm run test - run tests both for browser and the node.js environment
    • npm run test:browser - run all unit tests in the browser
    • npm run test:node - run all unit tests in the node.js environment
    • npm run watch:browser - run all unit tests and watch files for changes in the browser.
    • npm run watch:build - watch your TypeScript files and trigger recompilation on changes.
    • npm run watch:node - run all unit tests and watch files for changes in the node.js environment.
    • npm run tdd - run all watch tasks in parallel and watch files for changes.
    • update:dependencies - update npm packages

    Build workflow

    Everything is done with Webpack. When you are satisfied and ready to ship the code to production, you can make a nice, clean output with Rollup.

    npm run build:finale bundle the finale build files with Rollup, and make them ready for shipping. This files are put inside it's own folder dist-finale.

    A finale build shaves off around 4 - 5 KB from the bundled source, compared to Webpack. Less bytes - more happy customers!!

    Visual Studio Code

    This workflow is tightly integrated with VSCode. In fact you can do everything from the editor.

    Start the VSCode editor, and press Ctrl+Shift+B to compile the project. A build folder appers with the transpiled files in it.

    To stop the compilation, press Ctrl+P → > Tasks: Terminate Running Task.

    If you want to debug the source code, set a breakpoint on line 6 in /test/browser-tests/sikky.browser.js. Then press Cmd + D to view debugging options.

    Select Debug Current TypeScript Test from the dropdown and press F5 to launch the debugger.

    You should hit the breakpoint. Now you can press F11 to step into function, or press Shift+F5 to stop the debugger.

    Note! Debugging may randomly return warning on build. See.

    Unit tests can be run by pressin Cmd + T. You should see results displayed in the Output window.

    Both browser and server tests are set up to run at the same time in parallel.

    Custom Type Definitions

    When including 3rd party modules you also need to include the type definition for the module if they don't provide one within the module. From TypeScript 2.0 both TDD and Typings are deprecated. All definitions are now installed through NPM packages.

    npm install @types/<package name>`.

    You can read more about it here

    Test-driven development (TDD)

    There exist one task for this - npm run tdd. This task runs all watch task in parallel.

    Watch tasks

    It's integrated a watch task for server and unit testing, and a task to keep an eye on your build process. This is tightly integrated with the debugger task included in the VSCode editor.

    npm run watch:build starts the TypeScript 2.0 compiler in watch mode, and watch input files and trigger recompilation on changes. Dead code elimination for ES6 modules are activated by default, so later on you can use either Webpack 2.0 (early beta stage) or Rollup to perform tree shaking.

    The watch task inform you if something is wrong with your code, and can come up with suggestions on how to solve current issue.

    7:28:24 PM - File change detected. Starting incremental compilation...
    src/universal/foo.ts(7,10): error TS2348: Value of type 'typeof TeaSpoon' is not callable.
    Did you mean to include 'new'?

    Continuous integration (CI)

    Travis, Circle and Appveyor are the only supported CI. Travis is setup to work with Linux and OSX. Appveyor only runs in a Windows environment, but are configured to run on both the x86 and x64 platform.

    You will need to change permissons on the .sh files used by Travis.

    Code coverage

    The library is set up to integrate with Coveralls.io, and are using Istanbul and Karma + Webpack to generate coverage report.

    Coverage report for server tests will be included soon as I find it stable enough.

    Server testing

    Browser testing are done with mocha+chai+sinon. Debugging are enabled by default on port 5858.

    All server related tests are located inside the test/node-tests folder, and named with a node extension. E.g. foo.node.ts.

    JsDOM are used to fake DOM on the server.

    Note! There is no need to manually import testing framework related packages such as Chai, Sinon etc. This have been done automatically.

    Browser testing

    Browser testing are done with Webpack together with Karma as the test runner.

    All server related tests are located inside the test/browser-tests folder, and named with a node extension. E.g. foo.browser.ts.

    Direct browser testing

    The browser spec runner - ./config/runner.html - can be opened in a browser to run your tests. For it to work, you must first run npm run browser, and open port 8080 in your browser.

    This will set up a watch task that will automatically refresh the tests when your scripts, or the tests, change.

    Android and iOS

    This boilerplate is tested against Travis CI configured to run Android with SDK version android-19 - 23. It's not tested with iOS. But the conlusion is that this works just fine.

    Linting

    This boilerplate uses TSLint to lint your source. To change the rules, edit the .tslint.json` file in the root directory, respectively.

    FAQ

    When should I consider using this boilerplate?

    This library is ideal for libraries that export a single file.

    Will this boilerplate always support the latest technology and specs on the market?

    Yes. It will always be up-to-date.

    What's the browser compatibility?

    As a rule of thumb, TypeScript, Bublé and Babel works best in IE9 and above.

    What's the cost of transpiling?
