Yeoman Nitro Generator
Yeoman generator for Nitro - lets you quickly set up a frontend project with sensible defaults and best practices.
Nitro is a Node.js application for simple and complex frontend development with a tiny footprint.
It provides a proven but flexible structure to develop your frontend code, even in a large team.
Keep track of your code with a modularized frontend. This app and the suggested atomic design and BEM concepts could help.
Nitro is simple, fast and flexible. It works on OSX, Windows and Linux. Use this app for all your frontend work.
Before using, you need of course node and npm installed.
Nitro and the Nitro generator are tested with the current LTS versions of the node.js releases 4 and 6. So everything between should work. It's not recommended to update node.js to release 7.
npm install -g yo gulp generator-nitro
Keep your global packages up to date:
npm outdated -g --depth=0
Make an update if necessary:
npm update -g
Make a new directory, and
cd into it:
mkdir my-new-project && cd my-new-project
You will be guided through some configuration options:
- Desired Name (default: current directory name)
- Desired CSS preprocessor (
- Desired view file extension (
- Using client side templates (default: false)
The choosen options will be stored for the next project generation.
It's possible to pass in these options through the command line:
yo nitro --name=myproject --pre=less --viewExt=hbs --clientTpl
