A fast starter / seed project to extend the Coveo Javascript Framework

This project is meant to display a working starting point for a project that wish to extend the Coveo Javascript Search Framework with additional components.

Requirements

Node JS => 8.0

Setup

  1. Fork / clone the repository.
  2. npm install at the top of the repository.
  3. npm run build at the top of the repository.
  4. Open ./bin/Index.html in a browser. You should get a working search page with a big Hello World message at the top of the search page.

Structure

The code is written in typescript and compiled using webpack

  • Under the pages folder, you have a working search page. At build time, it is copied to the bin folder.

    • It references 2 style sheets (the base one from the Coveo Javascript Search Framework, and the one from the extension).
    • It references 3 javascript file (the extension one built in this project, and the basic templates and library scripts).
  • Under the src folder, you have all the typescript source code.

    • The src/ui/HelloWorld.ts file is a sample/demo component
    • The src/Index.ts file is the starting point of the application.
  • Under the sass folder, you have all the css for the extension.

  • Under the tests folder, you have all the tests for the custom components.

  • This project is also used in the Search UI tutorial. You are invited to consult this tutorial if you are unfamilar with Coveo. The last few steps of the tutorial explains an advanced integration with a custom component written in Typescript. It explains how to transform the Hello World component into something useful.

Build task

  • npm run setup will copy the needed ressources (index.html, templates, etc.) in the bin folder.
  • npm run css will build the sass files into a css file in the bin folder.
  • npm run build will run the setup, css task, then compile the typescript code.

Dev

npm run watch will start a webpack dev server. After it finishes, load http://localhost:3000 in a browser, and the index.html page should load.

Then, anytime you hit save in a typescript file, the server will reload your application.

Tests

  • npm run test will execute the tests one time and give you the report
  • npm run watchTest will watch changes and reexecute the tests and coverage when saving a file.

Useful Visual Studio Code Extensions

If you are using Visual Studio Code, you can install the following extensions:

TSLint

Shows inline linter problems in the code based on the tslint.json file. This will ensure that you are consistent with the formatting standards.
