brunch is lightweight client side framework on top of backbone.js, eco and stylus using coffee-script

How to Use

create a new project using 'proj' as app namespace

brunch provides the possibility to choose between different project templates currently these are available

  • express (default)
  • base

you can choose between them via option "--projectTemplate"

base

Just the basic brunch layout including src, config and build.

express

Includes build in express server which will be started with "brunch watch". You can take a look at the app at "localhost:8080".

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Instead of reinventing the wheel, brunch assembles awesome wheels.
