Based on generator-node

This generator creates a new Node.js module, generating all the boilerplate you need to get started with best-of-breed from the gulp ecosystem. The generator also optionally installs additional gulp plugins, see the list below.


Install the generator by running: npm install -g generator-node-gulp.


  • --test-framework=[framework]

    Defaults to mocha. Can be switched to another supported testing framework like jasmine.

  • --skip-install

    Skips the automatic execution of bower and npm after scaffolding has finished.


  • Customize the dependencies prompt by editing the settings.json file see.
  • Prefills prompt with the last used values for
    • GitHub username
    • Author's Name
    • Author's Email
    • Author's Homepage



You can customize the dependencies prompt by editing the settings.json. The file is located in the root of the generator-node-gulp /usr/local/lib/node_modules/generator-node-gulp/.


By default, the file looks something like this.

  "meta": {
    "githubUsername": "stefanbuck",
    "authorName": "Stefan Buck",
    "authorEmail": "",
    "authorUrl": ""
  "dependencies": [
      "name": "lodash",
      "description": "A utility library"
      "name": "q",
      "description": "A library for promises"
      "name": "debug",
      "description": "tiny node.js debugging utility"


At the command-line, cd into an empty directory, run this command and follow the prompts.

yo node-gulp

Note that this template will generate files in the current directory, so be sure to change to a new directory first if you don't want to overwrite existing files.
