Theodo stack generator Current npm package version

🏆 Objectives:

  • launch a project in 2 hours
  • upgrade an existing project to our standards

☝️In any case, open an issue if you don't succeed !


With the Theodo Stack Generator you can

  • create a new project with React + a Symfony API: yo theodo-stack
  • create a new React application: yo theodo-stack:react
  • create a new Symfony API: yo theodo-stack:server

Upgrade an existing React project:

  • add CircleCI configuration: yo theodo-stack:react-ci
  • add and configure Flow: yo theodo-stack:react-flow
  • add and configure linter: yo theodo-stack:react-lint
  • add Plop.js generators: yo theodo-stack:react-plop

And many more (to come), to list what you can do: yo --help

Let's use it!

npm install -g theodo-stack-generator
yo theodo-stack


If you want a server with the provisioning and the deployment scripts:


  • Create an empty directory and run the generator:
mkdir my-app && cd my-app
yo theodo-stack
  • Clean your NODE_PATH and Launch your React app in the client folder:
yarn start

For the client, you may need to source the .env file (source .env) if you want to use absolute PATH. Also see: this issue on create-react-app repository

Set-up and develop on your generated project

Update the generator

If you installed it with npm: npm update -g theodo-stack-generator

If you cloned it: you only need to pull the latest changes from your theodo-stack-directory. npm link created a symlink to your installation so it is automatic.

  • From the theodo-stack-generator directory
git pull

Wanna contribute to the Theodo Stack Generator?


  • node >= 10.9


  • Install Yeoman globally: npm install -g yo
  • Install the package:
git clone
cd theodo-stack-generator && npm install && npm link

You can use nvm if you don't have the right node version:

  • Install nvm: curl -o- | bash
  • Install and use node 10.9:
    • nvm install 10.9.0
    • nvm use 10.9.0

Make a change:

  • Change the code, you don't need to do re npm link as it created a symlink to the generator directory

  • Check everything still works fine generating a project (yest this is painful and we will work on it)

  • When you make a change to the generator in local, you can use it immediatly with your changes
