道 - a simple way to initialize your project.


Tao is a lightweight JavaScript project scaffolder, that asks minimum questions and remembers your preferences after the first run.

Repeat less. Do more.

Attribution: Originally, tao was a rework of the zen generator. Check it out. It is also great.


npm install --global yo generator-tao


yo tao

tao will remember you preferences after the first run, so you will need to answer only the questions about the module itself. You can tell tao to ask --all/-a questions or --skip/-s as much as possible.

To speed up the install use --yarn/-y. Make sure yarn is installed on your system.

λ yo tao --help
  yo tao:app [options] [<name>]

  -h,   --help          # Print the generator's options and usage
        --skip-cache    # Do not remember prompt answers                Default: false
        --skip-install  # Do not automatically install dependencies     Default: false
  -d,   --debug         # Debug mode                                    Default: false
  -a,   --all           # Ask all questions                             Default: false
  -s,   --skip          # Ask required questions only                   Default: false
  -y,   --yarn          # yarn install, ensure you have yarn installed  Default: false
