Future Plans on Integration with Existing Frameworks? #538

cerebralix opened this Issue · 14 comments

I'm a front-end developer to a couple of projects where I'm given a backend framework. Most of the time, I build on top of the Zend PHP framework. Because Zend already has a structure for it's file organization*, I'm wondering how Yeoman could fit in my workflow.

Is there now, or will there be, any ability to configure Yeoman to work inside a non-Yeoman directory structure? Unfortunately, I rarely have full control over a project (front and back-end) and have to work with other developers and their existing code base.

Much thanks for all of you guy's hard work to produce such a great product!

* Zend structure (partial example):

|-- application
|---- layout
|------ scripts (contains the "root index" file)
|---- views
|------ scripts (contains all view files, usually .phtml)
|-- public
|---- js
|---- css
|---- img

We are planning on making it more configurable yes.


This is great news that should benefit many like me that work with hybridized apps. Thanks for letting me know.

I vote for a Rails compatible generator. I use the Rails Asset pipeline and would like Yeoman to play nice with it.


Some of our plans for the future may include generalizing our generators system to the point where it would be a useful solution for scaffolding out projects beyond JavaScript. This is still something we'd consider a few months off, but it should currently be possible to custom-write a generator to output projects of most types. Its all just a matter of time :)


@cerebralix I know this was a little while back, but have you checked out generator-angular-zend?


I just saw this now for the first time. This might actually be a case where assetgraph could be a relevant alternative, given its ability to find paths and dependencies by itself. Of course with the caveat that the urls have to be valid, but from the example file structure that seems likely
