Yeoman generator generating a Angular2 Alfresco App scaffold


See the following page for an introduction to the Alfresco Application Development Framework.


Before you start using this development framework and the generator, make sure you have installed all required software and done all the necessary configuration, see this page.

Installing Yeoman and the App Generator

First, install Yeoman:

npm install -g yo

Then the Alfresco Application Generator:

npm install -g generator-ng2-alfresco-app

Generating a new application project:

First, move in the folder where you want create your project.

yo ng2-alfresco-app

You will need to run the following scripts in the generated folder:

npm install
npm start

Commands above install all project dependencies, start the project and watch for changes.

Alternatively you can use generator with install switch to trigger automatic installation of dependencies via npm install script:

yo ng2-alfresco-app --install

Optional utility commands

  • Link all ADF components locally
npm run link
  • Clean the project from node_modules and typings folder
npm run clean

start script also includes live reload and watchers for all the .ts files. TypeScript watchers are also configured for node_modules folder within demo shell and provide live reload for all the component libraries as well.

  • Install dependencies or reinstall after the clean
npm install

  5. Commit your changes: git commit -m 'Add some feature'
  6. Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature
  7. Submit a pull request
