What in the eff is this?

One of GoodTwin's designers started drawing eight bits of friends as a stress reliever / creative mental exercise. We thought they were insteresting art. So we decided to whip up a site using all parts of yeoman as a simple proof of concept around the workflow.

Tech stack

  • MongoDB
  • Node
  • Express
  • Angular
  • RequireJS
  • Grunticon for generating SVG fallbacks

So the meanr stack? nearmg stack? gremna stack?

What can I learn from this?

Check out the Grunfile.js to see the goodness of this project. The Gruntfile.js created by the scaffolding is a great starting point for making sure you are completing the right build tasks for any web development project.

The basics of the setup:

  • Got the app rolling quickly with yo angular
  • Added in grunt-bower-requirejs to easily incorporate components pulled in with bower into the require.js paths config. Modified GruntFile.js accordingly
  • Added grunticon for handling SVG images with appropriate fallbacks.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
