For more information on what generator-sf2 can do for you, take a look at the Grunt tasks used in our package.json.

Getting Started

  • Install: npm install -g generator-sf2
  • Run: yo sf2
  • Run grunt for building and grunt serve for preview

Note: grunt server was previously used for previewing in earlier versions of the project and is being deprecated in favor of grunt serve.


  • --skip-install

    Skips the automatic execution of bower, npm and composer after scaffolding has finished.

  • --test-framework=<framework>

    Defaults to mocha. Can be switched for another supported testing framework like jasmine.

  • --coffee

    Add support for CoffeeScript.


Note: We are regularly asked whether we can add or take away features. If a change is good enough to have a positive impact on all users, we are happy to consider it.

If not, generator-sf2 is fork-friendly and you can always maintain a custom version which you npm install && npm link to continue using via yo sf2 or a name of your choosing.
