NPM version CircleCI

This is a Yeoman generator plugin used by Reaction Commerce developers. The main generator creates a new project. There are also subgenerators for creating a new NPM package project and for quickly adding GraphQL files to the main Reaction project.


First, globally install Yeoman and generator-reaction using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

npm install -g yo generator-reaction

NPM Link

If you are adding or modifying generators in this package, you can test them prior to publishing by running npm link in the generator project's root directory to make the template available globally on your system.

npm link

Generate a new frontend or backend Node project

mkdir project-name
cd project-name
yo reaction

Generate a new NPM package project

mkdir package-name
cd package-name
yo reaction:npm

Generate GraphQL files in the main Reaction app

yo reaction:graphql
