Tasks & Bundling

Once you have run npm install, you're ready to start using Aurora's taskrunning features. Aurora includes several node tasks, and bundling with Webpack.

npm run build

Generates bundled, production-ready files with webpack.

npm run dev

Uses webpack to spin up a development server at http://localhost:9000, and initiates webpack --watch. Changes to files in ./src will be bundled automatically, and the site will be reloaded.

npm eslint

Runs ESLint against all JavaScript files in the /src directory. Only errors will be displayed in the console.

npm eslint:fix

A subtask for ESLint that not only checks for JavaScript linting errors, but also auto-fixes any fixable issues.

npm format

Keep formatting consistent between developers with Prettier. Enforces whether to use tabs or spaces, the number of spaces to use, single vs. double quotes, etc. Automatically fixes JS, JSX, and SCSS files.

npm run jsdoc

Looks through JavaScript files and generates API documentation based on JSDoc comments.

npm run kss

Looks through Sass files and compiles a KSS styleguide based on Sass comments.

npm run kss:watch

Automatically watches Sass files for changes and rebuilds KSS styleguide.

npm run sassdoc

Generates Sassdoc documentation based on Sassdoc annotations in all .sass and .scss files.

npm run stylelint

Runs Stylelint to enforce rules for style files (.css, .scss, etc.) in the /src directory. Flags errors in the console.

npm run stylelint:fix

A subtask for Stylelint that not only checks against style rules, but automatically fixes fixable issues.


Aurora Project includes Sass and JavaScript linting by default using Stylelint and ES Lint, respectively.
