aurelia-config

Aurelia-config is an aurelia plugin that allows you to load and configure plugins in a normalized manner.

Build Status Gitter

Overview

Using this plugin you can make it a lot easier to allow for configuration using IoC.

For plugin developers

You can allow app developers to configure your plugin through a simple config object. The way you expose it is simple: export an object literal called config, and give it a namespace / key to use. This is the same object your configure() function will receive upon plugin-configuration time.

// your-plugin.js

export function configure(aurelia, config) {
  // config is pojo
}

export {
  /* you need to namespace your defaults */
  'your-plugin': {
    /* This is your (optional) default config. */
  }
} as config;

Now app developers can use this config. Keep on reading to figure out how.

For app developers

In stead of using .plugin() for every plugin, you only use it for the aurelia-config plugin. Aurelia-config will register the rest of the plugins, using the corresponding namespace segment of your exported default config (if existing) merged with the appConfigOverwrites.

// Example config
let appConfigOverwrites = {
  'aurelia-api': {
    endpoints: [
      {name: 'api', url: 'http://127.0.0.1:1337/'}
    ]
  },
  'aurelia-notification': {
    baseClass: 'custom-notifications'
  }
};

// Configure function
export function configure(aurelia) {
  aurelia.use
    .standardConfiguration()
    .plugin('aurelia-config', configure => {
      return configure([
        'aurelia-api',
        'aurelia-notification',
      ], appConfigOverwrites);
    });
}

Installation for plugin developers

If you additionally want to use aurelia-config to access the global configuration, you can install it for Jspm with jspm i aurelia-config from your plugin root resp. npm i aurelia-config --save for webpack or aurelia-cli.

Installation for applications

Aureli-Cli

Run npm i aurelia-config --save from your project root.

Aurelia-config makes use homefront. So, add following to the build.bundles.dependencies section of aurelia-project/aurelia.json.

"dependencies": [
  // ...
  {
    "name": "homefront",
    "path": "../node_modules/homefront/dist",
    "main": "index"
  },
  "aurelia-config",
  // ...
],

Jspm

Run jspm i aurelia-config from your project root.

Add aurelia-config to the bundles.dist.aurelia.includes section of build/bundles.js.

If the installation results in having forks, try resolving them by running:

jspm inspect --forks
jspm resolve --only registry:package-name@version

Webpack

Run npm i aurelia-config --save from your project root.

Add 'aurelia-config' in the coreBundles.aurelia section of your webpack.config.js.

Typescript

Npm-based installations pick up the typings automatically. For Jspm-based installations, run typings i github:spoonx/aurelia-config or add "aurelia-config": "github:spoonx/aurelia-config", to your typings.json and run typings i.
