    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 https://github.com/kflash/spiky.git
    $ cd spiky
    $ npm install                   # Install Node modules listed in ./package.json
    $ npm run build                 # Build a minified and a non-minified version of the library

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

    Workflow

    • npm run dependencies - List installed packages
    • npm run dependencies:purge - Remove all dependencies
    • npm run dependencies:reinstall - Reinstall all dependencies
    • npm run dependencies:check - shows a list over dependencies with a higher version number then the current one - if any
    • npm run dependencies:upgrade - automatically upgrade all devDependencies & dependencies, and update package.json

    Gulp tasks

    • gulp build - build task that generates both minified and non-minified scripts
    • gulp build:dev - build task that generate a non-minified script
    • gulp build:prod - build task that generate a minified script
    • gulp build:cjs - Build task that generate a CommonJS bundle
    • gulp build:es6 - Build task that generate a ES2015 bundle
    • gulp build:ts - Build task that generate a ES5 bundle from TypeScript
    • gulp lint:src - lint the source
    • gulp lint:ts - lint the TypeScript source files
    • gulp lint:tests - lint the unit tests
    • gulp clean - remove the coverage report - and the dist folder
    • gulp node:cov - run Isparta, a code coverage tool
    • gulp test - runs unit tests for the browser and the Node.js environment
    • gulp test:browser - runs the unit tests for browser
    • gulp test:chrome - runs the unit tests for browser with Chrome
    • gulp test:phantom - runs the unit tests for browser with PhantomJS
    • gulp test:node - runs the unit tests in a Node.js environment
    • gulp watch - run all unit tests for browser with Chrome and PhantomJS, and watch files for changes
    • gulp watch:node - run all unit tests in the node environemnt, and watch files for changes
    • gulp watch:browser - run all unit tests for browser and watch files for changes
    • gulp watch:chrome - run all unit tests for browser with Chrome and watch files for changes
    • gulp watch:phantom - run all unit tests for browser with PhantomJS and watch files for changes
    • gulp prepare:ts - grab all TypeScript test files and bundle them down to ES5 for use with unit tests
    • gulp compile:closure - Convert JS down to Google Closure
    • gulp build:closure - Build with Google Closure compiler
    • gulp gzip - Gzip all files in the ~../dist/ folder
    • gulp tarball - Create a tarball from files inside the ~../dist/ folder
    • gulp bump - Bump package.json version number, and auto-commit your latest changes to a .git account

    Multi bundling

    Spiky has a couple of built-in tools that allow you to bundle different packages at once. E.g. take a look at the ./config/gulp/build-common.js file as a good example.

    All you need to do is to import the bundle from the util folder, and call it with two arguments - format and the entry point. E.g. bundle('cmd', '/foo/index.js);

    Testing environment

    This project uses Mocha to run your unit tests, it uses Karma as the test runner, it enables the feature that you are able to render your tests to the browser (e.g: Firefox, Chrome etc.).

    To add a unit test, simply create a .spec.browser.js or a .spec.node.js file inside the ~../test/specs/ folder. Karma will pick up on these files automatically, and Mocha and Chai will be available within your unit tests without the need to import them.

    To keep watching the common test suites that you are working on, simply do gulp watch:browser or gulp watch:node.

    Browser tests

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

    The browser tests are setup to work both with the browser and Node.js environment unit tests.

    Coverage reports

    This boilerplate are setup with two different code coverage reports - one for Karma and one for the Node.js environment. By default your coverage report for the Node.js environment will be published automatically to coveralls.io webpage if you have created an account there.

    Dependency management

    Spiky has build-in some nice features to always make sure your dependency tree are up to date.

    To check for the latest dependencies, simply run npm run dependencies:check.

    If you want to update your packages, you can simply do npm run dependencies:upgrade.

    Note! Your package.json will be automatically updated so make sure you have saved your changes before running this.

    To reinstall all packages, do npm run dependencies:reinstall, and to remove all packages npm run package:purge.

    FAQ

    Does this boilerplate work with Angular 2?

    Should work just fine. Spiky let you compile TypeScript down to ES6 / ES5. This also works for the unit tests.

    There are a few Gulp taks tasks dedicated to TypeScript.

    How do I make a TypeScript bundle, and run unit tests?

    Put your .ts files in the source folder, and then gulp build:ts.

    For unit tests, it will work the same way. Put your .ts file in the - ./test folder and run the tests.

    It is also a Gulp task - gulp prepare:ts - that make a ES5 bundle out of all your unit tests.

    You can lint your TS source files with gulp lint:ts.

    Does this boilerplate works with the Bublé ES2015 compiler?

    Yes. This will work with the Bublé. Even TypeScript will work but there are no support for Flow. This is rather a Rollup issue then a Bublé issue.

    How to set this up to work with Bublé

    You can get inspiration from one of my other boilerplates - Farris

    Is the provided tools only for Github?

    Yes. E.g gulp bump behave different on GitLab and Bitbucket and will not work. This is a plug-in issue, not an boilerplate issue.

    When should I consider using this boilerplate?

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

    Why isn't a sourcemap generated for the bundle?

    Because this is not set by default. It's very simple to add it. This boilerplate are using rollup-stream, so simply follow example #2 in the readme on their Github repo to set it up.

    What's the browser compatibility?

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

    What's the cost of transpiling?

    A thorough analysis of this question can be found here.

    Customizing

    This boilerplate is very customizable. Update the value of name in the package.json file to change the name of the variable exported from this boilerplate. To make other changes, look at the Gulp tasks in the ./config/gulp/task folder.

    There are a few tools located inside ./config/gulp/util folder which you can use to configure this boilerplate.

    E.g. commit(msg) to be used to commit any changes to a .git repo and push(origin, master) to push commits.

    gulp bump uses both this two tools. Take a look at how it's done :-)
