Build Status

Ts.ED backend generator

Mirror of @vortech-digital-pioneers/generator-tsed-backend, since scoped packages are not yet being supported by yeoman's registry as well as the offline interpreter. The original scoped package will be updated when support for scoped packages is given by yeoman, until this happens, be welcomed right here, where you stand.

Generates a new backend project including express, Ts.ED, mocha and chai.


First, install Yeoman and generator-tsed-backend using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-tsed-backend


Generate your new project:

yo tsed-backend [appName] [--demo]

Arguments are used for the following:

  • appName
    • specifies the name of your application
    • the folder containing the files will also be called like this
  • --demo
    • specifies if demo content (controller/service) should be generated when starting the project
  • --noDemo
    • specifies that no demo content will be generated

Generate a new controller:

yo tsed-backend:controller [controllerName]

Generate a new service:

yo tsed-backend:service [serviceName]
