Slush Molecule Build Status NPM version

Slush scaffolding to create molecule in Pattern Lab

Getting Started

Install slush-molecule globally: (May require SUDO or admin rights)

$ npm install -g slush-molecule

Usage

You must run the slush command from the root folder of your Pattern Lab (PL2)

$ slush molecule

You will be prompted for serveral things including the name of your molecule, if you need a javascript file, and if json file created for the molecule. Your answers will dictate which items get scaffolded into Pattern Lab.

Command to see which generators are installed:

$ slush

Uninstall Slush Molecule:

sudo npm uninstall slush-molecule -g

Configuring your Slush Molecule

You can configure filepaths and templates used by adding a slush-molecule-config.json file in the same place that you run the slush molecule command from. The default configuration is included in this project. Your local configuration will override and merge with that file. See below for an explaination of each value:
