Next Generation Angular + Cordova Generator

Experimental Yeoman generator for your next and next-gen Angular 1.x or 2 + Cordova project - lets you quickly set up a project with recent technologies in mind.

The generator is coded in ES6 with Babel as polyfill. Thus, it avoids much of the overhead in creating the generator.


  • Angular 2.0 and Angular 1.x + Ionic in ES6 with ng-upgrade path
  • Ionic 1.x + Angular 1.x template
  • Cordova 5 + Setup (Asset production to come...)
  • Uses ES6/ES7 with Babel as transpiler to write modern-day JavaScript without the use of typescript
  • Use ES6 Modules via SystemJS
  • Modular Grunt
  • Sass for CSS preprocessing
  • Bundling JavaScript via SystemJS (SFX)
  • Uses BrowserSync to live code in the browser
  • Also does image compression via imagemin
  • It is delivered with Crosswalk as web view (Android only)
  • Also adds many default plugins for Cordova

Only supported platforms are iOS and Android


  • Smoke Testing & E2E (Karma & Nightwatch + Appium)
  • Deployment to stores
  • More tide integration
  • ... many more things



Many thins are still in the flow

PhantomJS 2.x is needed to have the tests running; thus please install it separately as only PhantomJS 1.x is in the dependencies:

brew install phantomjs
