In your template, the creater is using handlebars to render the template, so you can use {{}} such as {{name}} to binding data into your template, the data can be modify in the meta.js file and you can wrote some rules to using some conditional statement, suce as {{#if_eq babel "stage-0"}}...some code{{/if_eq}}. More detail you can see the document here handlebars helpers, you can register helpers on meta.js file and here are several built-in conditional statement:


{{#if_eq lintConfig "airbnb"}}
while the lintConfig === "airbnb", this line will be show
else this line will be show


{{#unless_eq lintConfig "airbnb"}}
while the lintConfig !== "airbnb", this line will be show
else this line will be show


while the router is true, this line will be show

{{#unless router}}
while the router is false, this line will be show


$ weex create <template> [project-name] [options]
  1. Create a new project with an official template, if the <template> has no slash, it will search template from https://github.com/weex-templates and the default template is https://github.com/weex-templates/webpack.
$ weex create my-project
$ weex create webpack my-project
  1. create a new project straight from a github or other remote template.
  • GitHub - github:owner/name or simply owner/name
  • GitLab - gitlab:owner/name
  • Bitbucket - bitbucket:owner/name
$ weex create username/repo my-project . #github
$ weex create gitlab:username/repo my-project . #gitlab
$ weex create bitbucket:username/repo my-project . #bitbucket
