A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Note: I hardly write JavaScript anymore than I have to these days and this tools was originally built with a JavaScript focus (despite offering support for Non-JS projects). For Clojure you can write your own profiles and scaffold them with Leinengen which is my primary language at this point, thus nullifying the need for Ignite. As such I haven't had time to work on this (or the need) in a long time. I think it's in a pretty good state, but I would love for someone to come and help maintain this project.

  • express - A seed structure for building robust express apps

  • marionette - A folder structure for use with Marionette and Backbone.js, creates scripts directory.

  • meteor - Standardized Meteor Application Template

  • drupal - Standardized Drupal 7 Template folder & file structure

  • wordpress - Standardized WordPress Template folder & file structure

  • node - folder & file structure for creating Node.js & io.js modules

  • joomla - Joomla Template folder & file structure

  • harp - Harp.js folder & file structure scaffold

  • nwjs - NW.js application folder & file structure scaffold

  • sublime - Sublime Text scaffold for creating snippets and packages

  • atom - scaffold for creating packages in CSON and coffeescript.

Want to Contribute a Template?

Just fork the repo, add one, and submit a pull request.

Why do that instead of generators? Because with generator based solutions like Yeoman and Slush, everyone and their grandma has created generators. The plan for Ignite is to have community standardized templates so there's not 50 different angular scaffolds to choose from.


The plan for Ignite is simple. I want a solution that doesn't scaffold a project for you, but instead scaffolds the structure of a project. Why? Because you'll be able to do things like this...

ignite scaffold rails
cd public
ignite scaffold angular

instead of...

ignite scaffold rails-angular

This allows you to scaffold only the pieces you need and hopefully will give you a solution more specific to your actual needs, instead of installing all the junk someone else thought they needed when they created the generator.

Advanced Usage

Using custom templates

Ignite can be used with user-created templates as well. All you have to do is specify a folder on your file system and use the -d flag when calling the command.

Simply create the template in a directory

touch /path/to/my/templates/rails.json

Create the JSON appropriately, and then run

ignite scaffold rails -d /path/to/my/templates/
