Yeoman generator for modular AngularJS apps with Gulp and optional Polymer support

Inspired by John Papa's Angular Style Guide and Todd Motto's AngularJS styleguide.

Purpose

This generator focuses on organizing Angular components by feature (home, about, video player, etc.) instead of by type (controller, service, directive, etc.) to encourage the development of self-contained, reusable components.

A typical workflow with this generator consists of creating an Angular module (ng-poly:module) and then generating controllers, directives, etc. for this module to create a new feature.

Polymer is just an added feature, but it isn't required to utilize this generator.

Usage

Install generator-ng-poly:

npm install -g bower gulp yo generator-ng-poly

If TypeScript is going to be used, tsd will need to be installed:

npm install -g tsd

Run yo ng-poly Yeoman will then ask for an app name and language preferences.

If using Node 0.12, there is a bug in Yeoman or Node causing yeoman generators to hang. With ng-poly, if after it outputs the generated home module files it hangs, then it is safe to enter Ctrl+C, etc. The project is good to go and everything else should work normally.

Run gulp to build and start the development environment. More detail on Gulp tasks

gulp build will compile the assets

gulp dev will call the build task and setup the development environment

gulp unitTest will run unit tests via Karma and create code coverage reports

gulp webdriverUpdate will download the Selenium server standalone and Chrome driver for e2e testing

gulp e2eTest will run e2e tests via Protractor (must start a localhost before running gulp e2eTest)

Gulp Tasks in Detail


All generators ask for a module name except app and element. All generators except app take a name as an argument. A name can be written with CamelCase or hyphens.

Generators requiring a module can take a module option to bypass the prompt:

yo ng-poly:view newView --module=home/kitchen

A module value of app will add the new components to the module defined in app.js or app.coffee.


Examples are shown with HTML, LESS, JavaScript, Jasmine, and UI Router as the app configuration.

App

Asks for application name and language preferences to scaffold out an application with a home module. It will also ask if tests should be placed in the app/ or tests/ directory. It'll ask for some additional Bower dependencies and then install npm and Bower dependencies.

Example:

Run yo ng-poly to get started. ng-poly will then asks you some questions:

[?] What is the app's name?
[?] Which version of Angular should be used?
[?] Which structure should be used?
[?] Which is the preferred markup language?
[?] Which is the preferred application scripting language?
[?] Want to use Controller As syntax?
[?] Should directives be generated using a templateUrl (and markup file) instead of an inline template?
[?] By default, should the route generator create controllers?
[?] Which is the preferred test scripting language?
[?] Which is the preferred unit testing framework?
[?] Which is the preferred e2e testing framework?
[?] Which is the preferred style language?
[?] Should Polymer support be enabled?
[?] Should a framework be setup?
[?] Should ngRoute be used instead of UI Router?
[?] Which additional Bower components should be installed?

ng-poly makes some assumptions, but these can be overridden.

Option Default Value Info
host localhost BrowserSync and Protractor will use this host.
port 3000 BrowserSync and Protractor will use this port.
app-dir app Source code will be generated here.
unit-test-dir app Unit tests will be generated here.
skip-controller false Should the route generator skip creating a controller?
skip-install false Should ng-poly skip installing Bower and npm dependencies?

Example: yo ng-poly --port=8080 --app-dir=src to override the default port and app directory.

    $scope.micro.ctrlName = 'MicroCtrl';
  }
}());

Produces app/module/micro-controller_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/

  });
});

Decorator

Example:

yo ng-poly:decorator awesomeService
[?] Which module is this for?

Note: If decorating a service starting with a $ you must escape it like:

yo ng-poly:decorator \$state

Produces app/module/awesome-service-decorator.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc decorator
   * @name home.decorator:awesomeService
   * @restrict EA
   * @element
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .config(decorator);

  function decorator($provide) {
    $provide.decorator('awesomeService', function ($delegate) {
      $delegate.simpleFunction = function () {
        return 'awesomeService';
      };
      return $delegate;
    });
  }
}());

Produces: app/module/awesome-service-decorator_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('awesomeService', function () {
  var decorator;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function (awesomeService) {
    decorator = awesomeService;
  }));

  it('should have simpleFunction return awesomeService', function () {
    expect(decorator.simpleFunction()).toEqual('awesomeService');
  });
});

Directive

Generates a directive, its template, and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:directive fancy-button
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/fancy-button-directive.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc directive
   * @name module.directive:fancyButton
   * @restrict EA
   * @element
   *
   * @description
   *
   * @example
     <example module="module">
       <file name="index.html">
        <fancy-button></fancy-button>
       </file>
     </example>
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .directive('fancyButton', fancyButton);

  function fancyButton() {
    return {
      restrict: 'EA',
      scope: {},
      templateUrl: 'module/fancy-button-directive.tpl.html',
      replace: false,
      controller: function (scope) {
        scope.fancyButton = {};
        scope.fancyButton.name = 'fancyButton';
      },
      link: function (scope, element, attrs) {
        /*jshint unused:false */
        /*eslint "no-unused-vars": [2, {"args": "none"}]*/
      }
    };
  }
}());

Produces app/module/fancy-button-directive.tpl.html:

<div>{{fancyButton.name}}</div>

Produces app/module/fancy-button-directive_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('fancyButton', function () {
  var scope;
  var element;

  beforeEach(module('module', 'module/fancy-button-directive.tpl.html'));

  beforeEach(inject(function ($compile, $rootScope) {
    scope = $rootScope.$new();
    element = $compile(angular.element('<fancy-button></fancy-button>'))(scope);
  }));

  it('should have correct text', function () {
    scope.$apply();
    expect(element.isolateScope().fancyButton.name).toEqual('fancyButton');
  });
});

The directive's template (HAML, HTML, or Jade) is converted to a temporary module automatically for testing.

Factory

Generates a factory and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:factory cake
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/cake-factory.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc service
   * @name module.factory:Cake
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .factory('Cake', Cake);

  function Cake() {
    var CakeBase = {};
    CakeBase.someValue = 'Cake';
    CakeBase.someMethod = function () {
      return 'Cake';
    };
    return CakeBase;
  }
}());

Produces app/module/Cake-factory_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('Cake', function () {
  var factory;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function (Cake) {
    factory = Cake;
  }));

  it('should have someValue be Cake', function () {
    expect(factory.someValue).toEqual('Cake');
  });

  it('should have someMethod return Cake', function () {
    expect(factory.someMethod()).toEqual('Cake');
  });
});

Filter

Generates a filter and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:filter coffee
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/coffee-filter.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc filter
   * @name module.filter:coffee
   *
   * @description
   *
   * @param {Array} input The array to filter
   * @returns {Array} The filtered array
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .filter('coffee', coffee);

  function coffee() {
    return function (input) {
      var temp = [];
      angular.forEach(input, function (item) {
        if(item > 3) {
          temp.push(item);
        }
      });
      return temp;
    };
  }
}());

Produces app/module/coffee-filter_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('coffee', function () {
  beforeEach(module('module'));

  it('should filter our numbers not greater than 3', inject(function ($filter) {
    expect($filter('coffee')([1,2,3,4])).toEqual([4]);
  }));
});

Module

Generates a new module and create a new route. Updates parent module's dependencies.

Top Level Example:

yo ng-poly:module top

Produces app/top/top-module.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name top
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('top', [
      'ui.router'
    ]);
}());

Produces pp/top/top-routes.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  angular
    .module('top')
    .config(config);

  function config($stateProvider) {
    $stateProvider
      .state('top', {
        url: '/top',
        templateUrl: 'top/top.tpl.html',
        controller: 'TopCtrl'
      });
  }
}());

Produces app/top/top-controller.js, app/top/top-controller_test.js, app/top/top.tpl.html, app/top/top.less, e2e/top/top.po.js, e2e/top/top_test.js

Updates app/app-module.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name module
   * @requires $urlRouterProvider
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module', [
      'ui.router',
      'home',
      'top'
    ]);
}());

Deep Level Example:

yo ng-poly:module top/bottom

Produces app/top/bottom/bottom-module.js, app/top/boottom/bottom-routes.js, app/top/bottom/bottom-controller.js, app/top/bottom/bottom-controller_test.js, app/top/bottom/bottom.tpl.html, app/top/bottom/bottom.less, e2e/bottom/bottom.po.js, e2e/bottom/bottom_test.js

Updates app/top/top-module.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name top
   * @requires $stateProvider
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('top', [
      'ui.router',
      'top.bottom'
    ]);
}());

Notice the module in app/top/bottom/ is called 'top.bottom'. All tests in this directory use this nomenclature, as well.


Deeper Level Example:

yo ng-poly:module top/bottom/bottomest

Produces 'bottom.bottomest' module and routes, a controller, controller test, style, and a view in app/top/bottom/bottomest/

Updates 'top.bottom' module with the new 'bottom.bottemest' module as a dependency.


Deeperestier Level Example:

It just keeps going...


Empty modules

By running ng-poly:module newHome --empty a module's routes file will not be created.

The module file will omit the router dependency:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name newHome
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('newHome', [
    ]);
}());

Provider

Generates a provider and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:provider bacon
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/bacon-provider.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc service
   * @name module.provider:Bacon
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .provider('Bacon', Bacon);

  function Bacon() {
    return {
      $get: function () {
        return 'Bacon';
      }
    };
  }
}());

Produces app/module/Bacon-provider_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('Bacon', function () {
  var provider;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function (Bacon) {
    provider = Bacon;
  }));

  it('should equal Bacon', function () {
    expect(provider).toEqual('Bacon');
  });
});

Route

Adds a new route and generates a controller and view. The name provided is used as state name for UI Router and as the route URL for ngRoute. Yeoman will then ask for the module to add the route to, the URL for the route (UI Router only), and the templateUrl. It will also generate an e2e test and a Page Object model for the new route.

Example:

yo ng-poly:route your-place
[?] Which module is this for?
[?] What's the URL for this route? (UI Router only)
[?] What's the templateURL for this route?

Updates app/module/module-module.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name module
   * @requires $stateProvider
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module', [
      'ui.router'
    ]);

  angular
    .module('module')
    .config(config);

  function config($stateProvider) {
    $stateProvider
      .state('module', {
        url: '/module',
        templateUrl: 'module/module.tpl.html',
        controller: 'ModuleCtrl'
      })
      .state('yourPlace', {
        url: '/yourPlace',
        templateUrl: 'module/your-place.tpl.html',
        controller: 'YourPlaceCtrl'
      });
  }
}());

Produces e2e/your-place/your-place.po.js:

/*global element, by*/
'use strict';

var YourPlacePage = function () {
  this.text = element(by.tagName('p'));
  this.heading = element(by.tagName('h2'));
};

module.exports = YourPlacePage;

Produces e2e/your-place/your-place_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, browser, expect */
'use strict';

var buildConfigFile = require('findup-sync')('build.config.js')
  , buildConfig = require(buildConfigFile)
  , YourPlacePagePo = require('./your-place.po');

describe('Your place page', function () {
  var yourPlacePage;

  beforeEach(function () {
    yourPlacePage = new YourPlacePagePo();
    browser.driver.get(buildConfig.host + ':' + buildConfig.port + '/#/yourPlace');
  });

  it('should say YourPlaceCtrl', function () {
    expect(yourPlacePage.heading.getText()).toEqual('yourPlace');
    expect(yourPlacePage.text.getText()).toEqual('YourPlaceCtrl');
  });
});

Produces app/module/your-place-controller.js, app/module/your-place-controller_test.js, app/module/your-place.tpl.html, and app/module/your-place.less

Currently, the module must have an existing state for another to be added.


The route generator can take URL and templateUrl options, as well.

yo ng-poly:route yourPlace --url=yourPlace --template-url=your-place

The URL will automatically be prepended with / and and the templateUrl will be appended with .tpl.html.


Service

Generates a service and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:service cheap-or-good
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/cheap-or-good-service.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc service
   * @name home.service:CheapOrGood
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .service('CheapOrGood', CheapOrGood);

  function CheapOrGood() {
    var self = this;

    self.get = function get() {
      return 'CheapOrGood';
    };
  }
}());

Produces app/module/cheap-or-good-service_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('CheapOrGood', function () {
  var service;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function (CheapOrGood) {
    service = CheapOrGood;
  }));

  it('should equal CheapOrGood', function () {
    expect(service.get()).toEqual('CheapOrGood');
  });
});

Value

Generates a value and its test.

Example:

yo ng-poly:value morals
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/morals-value.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc service
   * @name module.constant:morals
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .value('morals', 0);
}());

Produces app/module/morals-value_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('morals', function () {
  var value;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function (morals) {
    value = morals;
  }));

  it('should equal 0', function () {
    expect(value).toBe(0);
  });
});

View

Generates a view and its style.

Example:

yo ng-poly:view nice
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/nice-view.tpl.html:

<h2>nice</h2>
<p>{{nice.ctrlName}}</p>

Produces an empty file app/module/nice-view.less


Element

Generates a Polymer element.

Example:

yo ng-poly:element gold-silver

Produces app/components/gold-silver/gold-silver.less:

:host {
  height: 100px;
  width: 100px;
  display: inline-block;
}

Produces app/components/gold-silver/gold-silver.html:

<link rel='import' href='../polymer/polymer.html'>

<polymer-element name='gold-silver'>
  <template>
    <link rel='stylesheet' href='gold-silver.css'>
    <div>{{name}}</div>
  </template>

  <script src='gold-silver.js'></script>
</polymer-element>

Produces app/components/gold-silver/gold-silver.js:

/*global Polymer*/
(function () {
  'use strict';

  var element = new Polymer({
    is: 'gold-silver',
    ready: function () {
      console.log('gold-silver');
    }
  });

  return element;
}());

Configurations

It is possible to override some configurations initially specified when yo ng-poly was ran.

Each generator is able to take the following arguments. For example, yo ng-poly:module test --skip-controller=true will override the configuration settings for everything generated by this command.

Option Possible Values Description
directive-template-url true, false Use external markup files and templateUrl instead of template in directives
skip-controller true, false Skip creating controllers when generating routes and modules

It's not recommended to mix ngRoute and UI Router, but it's possible.

Controller As Syntax

This generator has support for the Controller As syntax. Yeoman will ask if this should be enabled when ng-poly:app is ran.

This will generate controllers like:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc object
   * @name home.controller:HomeCtrl
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('home')
    .controller('HomeCtrl', HomeCtrl);

  function () {
    var vm = this;
    vm.ctrlName = 'HomeCtrl';
  }
}());

...and their tests like:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('HomeCtrl', function () {
  var ctrl;

  beforeEach(module('home'));

  beforeEach(inject(function ($rootScope, $controller) {
    ctrl = $controller('HomeCtrl');
  }));

  it('should have ctrlName as HomeCtrl', function () {
    expect(ctrl.ctrlName).toEqual('HomeCtrl');
  });
});

It'll also modify the state's controller like:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /* @ngdoc object
   * @name home
   * @requires $stateProvider
   *
   * @description
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('home', [
      'ui.router'
    ]);

  angular
    .module('home')
    .config(config);

  function config($stateProvider) {
    $stateProvider
      .state('home', {
        url: '/home',
        templateUrl: 'home/home.tpl.html',
        controller: 'HomeCtrl as home'
      });
  }
}());

Directives will be generated like:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc directive
   * @name home.directive:fancyButton
   * @restrict EA
   * @element
   *
   * @description
   *
   * @example
     <example module="home">
       <file name="index.html">
        <fancy-button></fancy-button>
       </file>
     </example>
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('home')
    .directive('fancyButton', fancyButton);

  function fancyButton() {
    return {
      restrict: 'EA',
      scope: {},
      templateUrl: 'home/fancy-button-directive.tpl.html',
      replace: false,
      controllerAs: 'fancyButton',
      controller: function () {
        var vm = this;
        vm.name = 'fancyButton';
      },
      link: function (scope, element, attrs) {
        /*jshint unused:false */
        /*eslint "no-unused-vars": [2, {"args": "none"}]*/
      }
    };
  }
}());

Lastly, views will be generated like:

<h2>home</h2>
<p>{{home.ctrlName}}</p>

Directive TemplateUrl

This generator has supporting for creating directives with inline templates and external markup files using templateUrl.

If Directive TemplateUrl is enabled, directives will be created as described above.

If Directive TemplateUrl is disabled, directives will be created like below.

Example:

yo ng-poly:directive fancy-button
[?] Which module is this for?

Produces app/module/fancy-button-directive.js:

(function () {
  'use strict';

  /**
   * @ngdoc directive
   * @name module.directive:fancyButton
   * @restrict EA
   * @element
   *
   * @description
   *
   * @example
     <example module="module">
       <file name="index.html">
        <fancy-button></fancy-button>
       </file>
     </example>
   *
   */
  angular
    .module('module')
    .directive('fancyButton', fancyButton);

  function fancyButton() {
    return {
      restrict: 'EA',
      scope: {},
      template: '<div>{{fancyButton.name}}</div>',
      replace: false,
      controller: function (scope) {
        scope.fancyButton = {};
        scope.fancyButton.name = 'fancyButton';
      },
      link: function (scope, element, attrs) {
        /*jshint unused:false */
        /*eslint "no-unused-vars": [2, {"args": "none"}]*/
      }
    };
  }
}());

Produces app/module/fancy-button-directive_test.js:

/*global describe, beforeEach, it, expect, inject, module*/
'use strict';

describe('fancyButton', function () {
  var scope;
  var element;

  beforeEach(module('module'));

  beforeEach(inject(function ($compile, $rootScope) {
    scope = $rootScope.$new();
    element = $compile(angular.element('<fancy-button></fancy-button>'))(scope);
  }));

  it('should have correct text', function () {
    scope.$apply();
    expect(element.isolateScope().fancyButton.name).toEqual('fancyButton');
  });
});

How to Add Polymer elements

Currently, this process isn't as simple as desired. Pull requests are greatly appreciated to help this process in any way.

For this, we're going to install and setup paper-toolbar.

  1. Run bower install --save polymerelements/paper-toolbar to download paper-toolbar and its dependencies.
  2. Digging through bower_components/paper-toolbar/, we can determine it needs to have paper-toolbar/paper-toolbar.html, paper-styles/paper-styles.html, and polymer/polymer. We then dig through bower_components/paper-styles/ to find it needs paper-styles/paper-styles.html, paper-styles/color.html, paper-styles/default-theme.html, paper-styles/shadow.html, paper-styles/typography.html, iron-flex-layout/iron-flex-layout.html, and iron-flex-layout/classes/iron-flex-layout.html. Then we dig through iron-flex-layout/iron-flex-layout to find out we just need to additionally include iron-flex-layout/iron-flex-layout/classes/iron-shadow-flex-layout.html.
  3. Edit the components task in gulp/build.js to include polymerBowerAssetsToCopy like:
polymerBowerAssetsToCopy = [
  'polymer/polymer*.html',
  'iron-flex-layout/iron-flex-layout.html',
  'iron-flex-layout/classes/*.html',
  'paper-styles/{color,default-theme,paper-styles,shadow.html,typography.html}',
  'paper-toolbar/paper-toolbar.html'
].map(function (file) {
  return bowerDir + file;
});
  1. Edit the componentsInject task in gulp/build.js to include
var polymerAssetsToInject = [
  'polymer/polymer.html',
  'paper-styles/paper-styles.html'
].map(function (file) {
  return config.buildComponents + file;
});
  1. Now, we can use the <paper-toolbar> element in our code.

Note: for custom components, we just need to include them in polymerAssetsToInject. They are all automically copied.
