Domo Apps Starter Kit

Commitizen friendly

Prerequisites

  1. domo-cli npm install -g ryuu
  2. plop npm install -g plop

Getting Started

  1. clone this repo $ git clone https://github.com/DomoApps/starter-kit.git {APP_NAME}
  2. install dependencies $ npm install
  3. create new (empty) repo on github and copy its SSH link
  4. run setup command $ npm run setup and follow prompts
  5. configure domo/manifest.json file
  6. run domo login if you are not already authenticated
  7. upload to domo $ npm run upload
  8. copy the id and value from dist/manifest.json to domo/manifest.json

Read more about using starter-kit on the project wiki.

What does the setup task do?

  1. Configures package.json { name, version, decription, repository } props.
  2. renames git remote to this repo from 'origin' to generator.
  3. creates new 'origin' remote to newly created repo
  4. adds and commit's all new files
  5. pushes changes to remote.

Usage

  • $ npm run setup to setup your repo to new git remote
  • $ npm start to run webpack-dev-server
  • $ npm test to run unit tests
  • $ npm run tdd to continuously run tests
  • $ npm run lint to lint code
  • $ npm run build to build (and minify)
  • $ npm version (patch|minor|major) to create git release
  • $ npm run upload to upload new version to domo. aka domo publish
  • $ npm run update-tools to pull in improvements to the dev tools

Adding or removing platform views (responsive, desktop)

  • Change config values at top of webpack.config.js
// set views to true if you want to include them in you app
// these can be changed at any time.
  includeDesktopView: false,
  includeResponsiveView: true,

Updates

To update your build tools, use the update-tools script:

$ npm run update-tools

Under the hood, this script is running git merge --no-commit generator/master. Make sure to run a git diff HEAD to make sure you are not overriding any of your own code in the update. You may also have to resolve some merge conflicts.

Updating CDN'd dependencies

If you would like to add/edit/remove a dependency from a CDN, you'll need to add/edit/remove the script tag in your main HTML file, you'll also have to add/edit/remove it to the webpack.config.js's externals property and to the karma.conf.js's array variable called CDNS.

Prerequisites for publishing

  • A thumbnail must be present in the domo folder under the name "thumbnail.png"
  • A valid json file named "manifest.json" must be present in the domo folder with the necessary meta data required by the domo cli. For more information on the manifest.json, please see Domo's manifest.json documentation
├── domo
|    ├── thumbnail.png // A thumnail for the app that will represent the app
|    |                 // on mobile and in the asset library
|    ├── manifest.json // The mapping file that communicates to the domo
|    |                 // cli which asset ids and aliases are used

...

If either of these files is missing, or if the manifest.json file is malformed, the publish will fail. For more on publishing, please see Domo's publish and share documentation

Style Guides

Future Plans

  • configurable proxy
  • localization strategy
  • closure optimization as soon as it's ready for babel 6

Domo Widgets (visualization components)

Domo has a growing library of visualization components (we call them widgets) that we have developed over time and incorporated into the apps that we have created. These widgets are built on top of a charting library called d3.js and a framework on top of d3.js called d3.chart. In order to consume these widgets, you don't need to be very familiar with these libraries and frameworks although a familiarity would be helpful.

These widgets are available to download as dependencies to your project via NPM and they are all name-spaced to the @domoinc organization. They are bundled as UMD modules so they should be consumable by most JavaScript bundlers and module systems (eg. RequireJS, Webpack, Browserify, Rollup). To see a list of all of our available widgets, simply navigate your browser to https://www.npmjs.com/org/domoinc.

Example

  1. Install desired widget $ npm i -S @domoinc/barchart
  2. Include widget into source code via module system or script tag.
  3. Create instance of chart by passing the constructor a d3 selection.
  4. Set chart's configurable options via config method.
  5. Set chart's accessor functions via accessor method.
  6. Draw chart by passing data to chart method.
 // CommonJS (webpack, browserify)
 const d3 = require('d3');
 const BarChart = require('@domoinc/bar-chart');
 const chart = new BarChart(d3.select('#chart'))
   .accessor('value', 'value', d => d.value)
   .config('width', 500)
   .draw(data);

 // AMD (RequireJS)
 define(['d3', 'bar-chart'], function(d3, BarChart) {
 var chart = new BarChart(d3.select('#chart'));
   chart
    .accessor('value', function(d) { return d.value; })
    .config('width', 500)
    .draw(data);
 });

 // globals (via script tag)
 var chart = new BarChart(d3.select('#chart'));
 chart
   .accessor('value', function(d) { return d.value; });
   .config('width', 500)
   .draw(data);
