Yeoman generator

My Wordpress projects tend to start out the same way, so this Yeoman Generator will:

  • Add basic Grunt modules/tasks
  • Create a src folder for all production files
  • Create new git repo
  • Add Wordpress Skeleton as a git submodule
  • Symlink the public_html folder on my MAMP server
  • Create a new database on MAMP

Yeoman Generators

You can think of a generator like a plug-in. Each generator helps you scaffold complete projects or useful parts. Yeoman doesn't come with any generators by default. 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-wp-skeleton from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-wp-skeleton

Finally, initiate the generator:

yo wp-skeleton
