A generator for Yeoman. env-config generated environment specific json configuration files for use in your application. There is also an AngularJS sub-generator that creates a factory class to use for configuring your angular app using the env config json files.

Example usage tutorial can be found here.

Getting Started

What is Yeoman?

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:

Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

$ npm install -g yo

Yeoman Generators

Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.

To install generator-env-config from npm, run:

$ npm install -g generator-env-config

Finally, initiate the generator:

$ yo env-config

To create an environment config with a specific name:

$ yo env-config staging

AngularJS Config

To create an AngularJS config:

$ yo env-config:angular config

To create an angular config with a specific name:

$ yo env-config:angular foo

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
