Yeoman generator

Getting Started

What is Yeoman?

Trick question. It's not a thing. It's this guy:

Basically, he wears a top hat, lives in your computer, and waits for you to tell him what kind of application you wish to create.

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. He lives in the npm package repository. You only have to ask for him once, then he packs up and moves into your hard drive. Make sure you clean up, he likes new and shiny things.

npm install -g yo

Yeoman Generators

Yeoman travels light. He didn't pack any generators when he moved in. You can think of a generator like a plug-in. You get to choose what type of application you wish to create, such as a Backbone application or even a Chrome extension.

To install generator-glympse-journey-app from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-glympse-journey-app

Finally, initiate the generator:

yo glympse-journey-app

You'll be prompted for the name of the app you wish to create, along with your github username. Don't worry, Yeoman is just curious and a little OCD in filling out defaults for your application -- he's a read-only sort of guy.

After yo runs and completes app setup, you should have a basic app that has all the dependencies and setup for creating a Glympse Journey-based webapp. Check out the to get the low-down on the app skeleton structure and how to get up and running.

Have fun!

Getting To Know Yeoman

Yeoman has a heart of gold. He's a person with feelings and opinions, but he's very easy to work with. If you think he's too opinionated, he can be easily convinced.
