SAO was made because yeoman, while powerful, is too complex. vue-cli, on the other hand, is more than a scaffolding tool and lacks some important features like unit testing. SAO combines the powerful core features of yeoman with the simplicity of vue-cli into a single application.

SAO is compatible with:

  • Regular git repo (simply download it)
  • SAO generator as git repo
  • SAO generator as npm package
  • SAO generator in local folder

Both repo and npm package can be used offline.

Quick Start

npm i -g sao

# An official generator for creating a Node.js project
# Generate from git repo
sao saojs/sao-nm my-module
# Or from npm package (
sao nm my-module
