The backbone of a scaffolding tool.

Features

  • Zero-dependency, very light-weight (940KB) compared to Yeoman (12MB)
  • Ultra-simple, this module exists because writing Yeoman generator is hard and time-consuming

Install

yarn add kopy

Usage

const kopy = require('kopy')

const config = {
  prompts() {
    return [
      {
        type: 'input',
        name: 'name',
        message: 'what is your name'
      }
    ]
  },
  actions() {
    return [
      {
        type: 'copy',
        files: '**',
        cwd: '/path/to/templates',
        // When specified, transform the files with `ejs`
        data: this.answers
      }
    ]
  },
  completed() {
    console.log('Done!')
  }
}

const generator = kopy(config)

generator
  .run({
    outDir: './out'
  })
  .catch(kopy.handleError)

Testing:

const kopy = require('kopy')

test('it works', async () => {
  const generator = kopy(config)
  await generator.emulate()
  expect(generator.answers).toEqual({ name: '' })
})
