Announcing generator-johnny-five

I'm releasing a Yeoman Generator designed specifically to scaffold out a Johnny Five project.

This project was created in response to an internal hackathon at my company, where I was creating a lot of small projects that was taking more time to setup than test the item I was working with. It's also something that I think the Johnny-Five community could benefit from to reduce the barrier to entry for Johnny-Five and automate some tedious tasks for the more experienced developers.

I hope you enjoy.

Features Include

  • Johnny-Five project file creation
  • .jshintrc from the Johnny-Five project
  • package.json creation and dependency additions
  • Preset configurations for Standard Johnny-Five, Particle and Raspberry Pi projects
  • Library Installs:
  • Basic NodeUnit scaffolding (optional)

Getting Started

Not every new computer comes with a Yeoman pre-installed. Run the following to install Yeoman:

npm install -g yo  

To install the Johnny Five Generator from npm, run:

npm install -g generator-johnny-five  

Finally, initiate the generator:

mkdir <your directory>  
cd <your directory>  
yo johnny-five  

If you would like more information on the project look at the npm page or if you would like to contribute fork the project on Github.
