yo-profile NPM version Dependency Status

Dynamic profile parser for Yeoman generators

Enable Yeoman generators to use static rc-type files for pre-populating (or overriding entirely) optional settings during project setup.

Install

$ npm install --save yo-profile

Generator Usage

Once installed, add an include for the project in your generator's base index file:

var profile = new ( require( 'yo-profile' ).default );

Then, create an object, specifying default (empty) fields and a file path somewhere in your generator's init method. You can use chaining to immediately access the parsed properties:

var Generator = yeoman.generators.Base.extend({
  init: function() {
    // ...
    
    var options = {
      'somesetting' : undefined,
      'othersetting': undefined
    };
    this.defaults = profile.load( options, 'mysettings' ).properties;
  }
})

The above snippet will attempt to load .mysettingsrc from your home directory or the directory of the project being created.

CLI Usage

When invoking a yo-profile-powered generator, specify the desired profile with the --profile flag. For example:

yo generator:subgenerator --profile Boss

If no profile is specified, yo-profile will attempt to load the profile specified as the default.

RC File Structure

By default, you should be using an INI file structure for your rc profile.

; The default profile will be used if no other profile is specified at runtime
