Greenkeeper badge Version npm Build Status

Getting Started with a Project

Install Yeoman, Bower, Grunt CLI, and JSHint

npm install -g yo bower jshint grunt-cli

Install Ruby

  • Use a version lower than 2.5 (as of 1/10/2018)

Install Compass, SASS, and SCSS_Lint

sudo gem install compass sass scss_lint

Install the BREI-App Generator

npm install -g generator-brei-app

Finally, initiate the generator:

yo brei-app

From here you will be presented with a series of options:

What would you like to do? (Use arrow keys)
❯ Create a New Project
  Create a Partial
  Create a Module
  Create a Template

Just follow the prompts and off you go!


  • Do not stage the project (run npm install or other dependency managers) from Dropbox. The dependency folders, especially node_modules, contain thousands of files and directories, and Dropbox can freeze the disk or cause permissions errors while it syncs.


All Sub-Generators install the properly formatted .hbs and .scss file according to BarkleyREI front-end coding standard conventions.

Note: you can either run yo brei-app and select the desired sub generator task, or you can use the following commands to do it manually.

Create a new Project:

yo brei-app:new

Create a new Template:

yo brei-app:template

Create a new Module

yo brei-app:module

Create a new Partial

yo brei-app:partial

Testing the Generator

This only needs run if you are locally modifying the generator files in this repo, not a project created with it.


npm install -g jshint

To Test:

npm test

The test takes about 10-12 minutes to run.
