Usage

For the time being we are not bundling all of the dependencies for this module into the chiropractor.js file, instead you will need to define those dependencies yourself. You can reference the bower.json file to get a list of all of the dependencies (both development and production) or reference build.js to see what the bare minimum requirejs configuration file looks like to support this module.

require.config({
    paths: {
        'chiropractor':       'bower_components/chiropractor/chiropractor',
        'handlebars':         'bower_components/require-handlebars-plugin/Handlebars',
        'hbs':                'bower_components/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs',
        'i18nprecompile':     'bower_components/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs/i18nprecompile',
        'json2':              'bower_components/require-handlebars-plugin/hbs/json2',
        'underscore':         'bower_components/underscore/underscore',
        'jquery':             'bower_components/jquery/jquery',
        'jquery.cookie':      'bower_components/jquery.cookie/jquery.cookie'
    },

    hbs: {
        disableI18n: true,
        disableHelpers: true
    },

    pragmasOnSave: {
        excludeHbsParser : true,
        excludeHbs: true,
        excludeAfterBuild: true
    },

    shim: {
        'underscore': {
            exports: '_'
        },
        'jquery.cookie': {
            deps: ['jquery'],
            exports: 'jQuery.cookie'
        }
    }
});

Building

To get started developing Chiropractor you must first run two commands to install all of the dependencies:

npm install
bower install

In order to compile the Chiropractor code for release you must run:

grunt

Which will generate chiropractor.js as well as chiropractor.min.js in the root of the project. Whenever you wish to run this command, please be sure to increment the version defined in package.json as well as bower.json.

Tests

There are two ways to run tests:

npm test

Or if you want more control over how your tests are run (such as continuous testing with auto-running tests on file changes you can run:

./node_modules/.bin/karma start --dev --browsers Chrome,PhantomJS

Previewing

You can preview example functionality of Chiropractor by first running:

grunt devserver

goto: http://localhost:8888

Also you check out the /example folder for the source code of these examples in how to integrate Chiropractor into your project.

Enabling ErrorHandling

You can enable Chiropractor default error handler for api unreachable or error codes by setting the property: enableErrorHandler: true in your model or collection.

You can also override or create your own custom error template by overriding the row "error" template with your own.

Using Chiropractor 0.1.20++

You will need to add these paths:

'chiropractor-path': '../components/chiropractor',
'jquery.cors': '../components/chiropractor/jquery.cors',

Also you will need to add these shims:

'console-shim': {
      exports: 'console'
},
'json2': { exports: 'JSON' },
