Getting Started

What is Yeoman?

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:

Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

npm install -g yo

Yeoman Generators

Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.

To install generator-js-browser-module from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-js-browser-module

Finally, initiate the generator:

yo js-browser-module

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.

Basic Usage


Gruntfiles can become massive rather quickly. To combat this, generator-js-browser-module splits each Grunt task option into it's own file located in the tasks folder and each additional registered task in the register folder. Adding a new Grunt tasks is as simple as copying an existing config file, updating it, and saving in the save folder. Grunt will automatically read and process everything in the config folder. In addition to that, you do not need to manually load any tasks. jit-grunt lazy loads modules as needed.

Default Task

The default grunt command watches the project and then concats any files in the src/ directory, runs any unit tests, jshint, jscs, and finally Flow.

test Task

The grunt test command runs any unit tests then, jshint, jscs, and flow.

build Task

The grunt build command runs the test command then concats everything in the src/ folder and minifies it.

Unit Testing

generator-js-browser-module uses Jasmine and Karma for unit testing. Tests are kept in the tests/specs folder and are run with the npm test command.
