express-stack

A proof of concept stack for development using Yeoman 0.9.6, Express and AngularJS

  • Custom version of Yeoman's server.js with support for Express middleware
  • LiveReload supported out of the box
  • Generator for Express and CRUD generator for AngularJS
  • Proof-of-concept application using AngularJS

This stack assumes that you wish to develop both the server and client portions of your application within the same directory. By the end of setup, you will be able to see how to do this using the demo application which has a server directory for Express code and an app directory for your client-side code.

Components

  • yeoman-custom - A custom build of Yeoman 0.9.6 with support for Express middleware
  • generators - Express and AngularJS Crud generators for scaffolding
  • demo - A sample application

Installation

  1. Find out where your local yeoman lives using where yeoman (e.g /usr/local/share/npm/lib/node_modules/yeoman).
  2. Under the tasks directory of your yeoman install, replace server.js with yeoman-custom/cli/tasks/server.js from this repo.
  3. Run npm install on your updated yeoman, to resolve the Express.js dependency and any other dependencies if you haven't installed yeoman before
  4. If you wish to install the express and angularcrud generators, copy them into your yeoman install's node_modules/yeoman-generators/lib/generators. Yeoman should be able to pick them up automatically when you try calling them

Getting started from scratch

After you've gone through the installation process, you have two options - you can either start a brand new application using the below commands or skip to the demo where some included sample code is available for you to try out.

yeoman init angularcrud
yeoman init angularcrud:crud post
yeoman init express post
yeoman server

# you can then navigate to #/api/post/index to verify
# that the routing is working with Express correctly

Demo

You should now be able to navigate to demo and run yeoman server to run it. Note, if you have multiple versions of yeoman installed locally, you may wish to directly use the binary in yeoman-custom, otherwise everything should work.

For the generators, the following are supported:

Angularcrud:
  angularcrud:all
  angularcrud:app
  angularcrud:common
  angularcrud:controller
  angularcrud:crud
  angularcrud:crud-controller
  angularcrud:crud-route
  angularcrud:crud-view
  angularcrud:directive
  angularcrud:filter
  angularcrud:route
  angularcrud:service
  angularcrud:view

Express:
  express:all
  express:crud

For more information about individual sub-generators, please see the USAGE guidelines.
