Yeoman generator for Polymer projects
Polymer is a library of polyfills and sugar which enable the use of Web Components in modern browsers. The project allows developers to build apps using the platform of tomorrow and inform the W3C of places where in-flight specifications can be further improved.
generator-polymer provides Polymer scaffolding using Yeoman (a scaffolding tool for the web), letting you easily create and customize Polymer (custom) elements via the command-line and import them using HTML Imports. This saves you time writing boilerplate code so you can start writing up the logic to your components straight away.
- A Polymer app scaffold built with HTML5 Boilerplate
- Sub-generator to create Polymer elements for your app
- Boilerplate to create reusable Polymer elements
- Quick deploy to GitHub pages
- All the goodness of
seed-element(docs & landing page for your element)
- Support for SASS/SCSS and Autoprefixer
- PageSpeed Insights for performance tuning
- Mocha test stubs
Install the generator
npm install -g generator-polymer
Make a new directory and cd into it
mkdir -p my-project && cd $_
Scaffold a new Polymer project:
Note: Generators are to be run from the root of your app
Sets up a new Polymer app, generating all the boilerplate you need to get started.
Generates a polymer element in
app/elements and appends an import to
yo polymer:el my-element
Note: You must pass in an element name, and the name must contain a dash "-"
Generates a reusable polymer element based on the seed-element workflow. This should only be used if you're creating a standalone element repo that you intend to share with others via bower. If you're just building a Polymer app, stick to the El generator.
The seed-element generator will construct a new element and its directory for you. Be aware: all bower dependencies will be installed as siblings of the newly generated element. Make sure that you generate the seed element within a directory that is intended to contain multiple components!
mkdir -p components && cd $_ yo polymer:seed x-foo
Generates a Github pages branch for your seed-element.
cd components/x-foo yo polymer:gh
Autoprefixer and style elements
The Autoprefixer task will not work with
style elements mixed into HTML files (it breaks). Meaning, if you drop a style tag inside of your Polymer element, it will not be processed by Autoprefixer. Only external CSS files can/will be processed by Autoprefixer.
