Module Version Build Status Code Coverage


A friendly command line tool designed to help create sustainable software using web technology

It's like create-react-app, but with less complexity and more flexibility (tomo even has "out of the box" support for HMR using Webpack or Parcel)

It's like yeoman+generator, but with a bespoke interface written with the React API that focuses on User Experience (UX). tomo can also be used to progressively enhance existing projects!

It's like GatsbyJS, but can be used to make and enhance modules, libraries, plugins, apps, sites, servers, and more.

It's like mrm, but with mostly different options, built with a React-based UI, and focused more on code, less on config. Honestly, mrm is really cool... tomo and mrm could definitely be used together.

It's like boilerplate from GitHub, but with a streamlined interface designed to be user friendly (and all of the stuff above too)

(see the wiki for my full list of alternatives/inspirations)


$ npm install --global tomo-cli
