What is it?
- Jsus works with mootools-style packages. That means you specify a package.yml / package.json file with package structure for every library/bigger module you have. Source files should also have special headers denoting their requirements and what they provide.
- Jsus automatically resolves dependencies, so you don't have to worry about order issues or anything else.
- Jsus allows you to make "extensions". Extension is a monkey-patch you can apply to any other library. Because sometimes you want to make project-specific change to a library you don't have control over and you want to be able to update this library without applying manual patches from their source.
- Jsus uses murdoc for doccu style docs generation.
- Jsus generates special json files denoting source and resulting project structure which can be useful for later introspection.
- Jsus can also generate a special js file with loader for your dependencies, so that you don't need to repackage everything during development cycle.
- For simple examples, take a look at: https://github.com/markiz/jsus-examples
- You can try it yourself on mootools-core:
- Get mootools-core from https://github.com/mootools/mootools-core
jsus . Output
- Look at what Output directory contains
Using with Rails / Sinatra / Whatever
These are rather long-term, for when I get to have time and mood to do those:
- Rails integration
- npm packages support
- I don't have any particular roadmap or plans for more features
- However, I am open for any suggestions
- Bonus points for suggestions with pull-requests
