    Slush Marionette-frontend

    Browserify+Backbone+Marionette frontend enviroment

    Introduction

    This slush aims to provide a plug and play MarionetteJS application.

    Provides the following:

    • Marionette based application example (updated as much as possible, with no deprecated features).
    • Includes node-underscorify so you can write your templates in a separate file or in the same index.html.
    • BrowserSync to auto-reload the browser.

    What needs to be done:

    • Allow user to choose between using marionette with lodash or underscore.
    • Add Support for i18n with an example.
    • Write frickin tests.
    • Include some kind of fixture or api simulator.

    What does not include:

    • Two way data binding (try backbone.stickit or backbone.epoxy)
    • Validation for your models (try backbone.validation, yeah, you should, it's awesome)
    • A way to display form errors (you could write a behaviour for this)
    • If you want persisted data using localStorage, take a look at backbone.localStorage.
    • If you want to use jade templates, go check jadeify.

    The idea of this slush is: write your app, execute gulp, (run tests) n see the results.

    Installation

    Install slush-marionette-frontend globally:

    npm install -g slush-marionette-frontend

    Or directly from this github repo:

    npm install -g woile/slush-marionette-frontend

    You'll also need to have slush and gulp installed globally.

    npm install -g gulp slush

    If you don't have your node configure try using sudo to install slush and slush-marionette-frontend.

    Project structure

    The idea of this marionette application is to have the directory structure sorted by feature, look at this link for more information (I think it applies for marionette also), http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18542353/angularjs-folder-structure.

    Every part of the application should be created inside components, reusable elements should be included inside the commons folder, like behaviors or related stuff.

    The layout should be created in the src/components/layout folder (duh). The project structure with the contact-example included will look like this:

    my-marionette-app

    Generators

    Available generators:

    Init

    Creates a new Marionette application, generating all the boilerplate you need to get started.

    Create a new folder for your project:

    mkdir my-marionette-app

    Run the generator from within the new folder:

    cd my-marionette-app
     
    slush marionette-frontend

    or

    cd my-marionette-app
     
    slush marionette-frontend:init

    You will be prompted with some question related to you Marionette app.

    Module

    Generates a module in src/components/<module>

    Syntax:

    slush marionette-frontend:module <moduleName>

    Example:

    slush marionette-frontend:module login

    You will be prompted to give a name to your new Marionette module.

    Notes

    • A component should contain its views, models and the index.js (where you should instanciate your views and modules), then in the src/routes.js should be defined the route inside appRoutes and its corresponding function inside the urlHandler.
    • To avoid 'Cannot read property 'Deferred' of undefined' error, is used the backbone version that appears in the package.json, and Backbone.$ is setted in the src/app.js. If you want to read more go to: https://github.com/thejameskyle/marionette-wires/issues/56, this should be fixed in the coming version of Marionette (I hope).

    Getting To Know Slush

    Slush is a tool that uses Gulp for project scaffolding.

    Slush does not contain anything "out of the box", except the ability to locate installed slush generators and to run them with liftoff.
