What is "Generate"?

Generate is a command line tool and developer framework for scaffolding out new GitHub projects using generators and tasks.

Answers to prompts and the user's environment can be used to determine the templates, directories, files and contents to build. Support for gulp, base and assemble plugins, and much more.

For more information:

How does generate-install work?

This generator can be installed as a dependency and registered with the .use method in your own generator.

Install

Install with npm:

$ npm install generate-install

Example usage

In your own generator:

module.exports = function(app) {
  app.use(require('generate-install'));
};

Once registered, generate-install does two things:

  • middleware: Adds a middleware for getting dependencies to install
  • prompt: Adds a task for prompting the user to install the detected dependencies

1. middleware

Adds a .postWrite middleware, which runs after a file is written to the file system to see if an install object was defined in yaml front-matter).

Example

This example shows a basic gulpfile.js template with front-matter that defines gulp as a dev dependency.

---
install:
  devDependencies: ['gulp']
---
var gulp = require('gulp');

gulp.task('default', function(cb) {
  // do task stuff
  cb();
});

If the install object exists, the middleware will extract the dependencies and devDependencies, filtering out any deps that are already installed and listed in package.json.

This also works:

---
install: ['gulp']
---
var gulp = require('gulp');

gulp.task('default', function(cb) {
  // do task stuff
  cb();
});

Which is normalize to {devDependencies: ['gulp']}.

2. prompt

The second thing this generator adds is an optional task for prompting the user.

Example usage

Run after other tasks are finished:

app.use(require('generate-install'));
app.task('generate-stuff', function(cb) {
  cb();
});

app.generate(['generate-stuff', 'install'], function(err) {
  if (err) return console.log(err);
});

This task is optional, since the user can also install this generator globally and run is directly.

Example

If your generate is named foo, the user can do this:

gen foo install

Running tests

Running and reviewing unit tests is a great way to get familiarized with a library and its API. You can install dependencies and run tests with the following command:

$ npm install && npm test
