A slush generator for AngularJS with Modules Scaffolding for scalable apps created for my company : Oxygene Interactive. Slush Oxygene is also a fork of the great Slush package : slush-angular


Install slush-oxygene globally:

npm install -g slush-oxygene

Remember to install slush globally as well, if you haven't already:

npm install -g slush


Create a new folder for your project:

mkdir my-angular-app

Run the generator from within the new folder:

cd my-angular-app
slush oxygene

You will now be prompted to give your new AngularJS app a name, which will be dasherized and used in its bower.json and package.json respectively. The chosen name will be camelized and used as the main angular module as well, inside src/app/app.js.

CSS Preprocessor

You can choose between LESS, Stylus, and Sass to use as the CSS Preprocessor for your project. The preprocessor scaffolding is inspired by Todd Motto fireshell

Project structure

The project structure with the Acme Module example included will look like this:

├── .bowerrc
├── .csslintrc
├── .editorconfig
├── .gitignore
├── .jshintrc
├── bower.json
├── gulpfile.js                           # See "Gulpfile" below
├── karma.conf.js
├── package.json
└── src
    └── app
        ├── app.js/coffee                 # Main app module and configuration
        ├── index.html                    # The index.html/app layout template
        ├── assets                        # A folder meant for images and such..
        │   └── .gitkeep
        ├── modules
        │   └── AcmeModule                # The name of the module
        │       ├── controllers           # The controllers path
        │       ├── directives            # The directives path
        │       ├── filters               # The filters path

            ├── partials                  # The partial views stylesheets path
            ├── vendor                    # The vendor path
            └── app.styl/less/scss        # Main app stylesheet



To start developing in your new generated project run:

gulp serve

Then head to http://localhost:3000 in your browser.

The serve tasks starts a static file server, which serves your AngularJS application, and a watch task which watches your files for changes and lints, builds and injects them into your index.html accordingly.


To run tests run:

gulp test

Production ready build - a.k.a. dist

To make the app ready for deploy to production run:

gulp dist

Now you have a ./dist folder with all your scripts and stylesheets concatenated and minified, also third party libraries installed with bower will be concatenated and minified into vendors.min.js and vendors.min.css respectively.
