Quickstart

Install

Install generate and generate-mocha:

$ npm install --global generate generate-mocha

Generate a test.js file

Initiate a prompt to generate a test.js file in the current working directory:

$ gen mocha
$ gen mocha --dest ./foo

Files trees

The following files trees are automatically generated by a task in verbfile.js.

  • generated files: trees representing the actual generated "dest" files for each task
  • source files: trees representing the source files and templates used by each task

(See Generate's customization docs to learn how to override individual templates.)

Generated files

Files generated by each task (e.g. dest files). See the Generate customization docs to learn how to override individual templates.

Note that diffs are base on comparisons against the files generated by the default task. Additionally, some tasks generate the same files, but with different contents (for example, the contents of index.js differs based on the task).

default

Files generated by the default task:

 .
 └── test.js

base

Files generated by the base task:

 .
 └── test.js

generator

Files generated by the generator task:

 .
+└─┬ test
   ├── test.js
+  └── plugin.js

updater

Files generated by the updater task:

 .
+└─┬ test
   ├── test.js
+  └── plugin.js

Source files

The following trees represent the source files or templates that are used by each task. You'll see that most of the tasks use at least one "micro-generator" to generate a specific file.

default

Source files and/or libraries used by the default task:

 .
 └─┬ templates
   ├── base.js
   └── test.js

What is "Generate"?

Generate is a command line tool and developer framework for scaffolding out new GitHub projects using generators and tasks.

Answers to prompts and the user's environment can be used to determine the templates, directories, files and contents to build. Support for gulp, base and assemble plugins, and much more.

Getting started

Install

Installing the CLI

To run the mocha generator from the command line, you'll need to install Generate globally first. You can do that now with the following command:

$ npm install --global generate

This adds the gen command to your system path, allowing it to be run from any directory.

Install generate-mocha

Install this module with the following command:

$ npm install --global generate-mocha

Usage

Run this generator's default task with the following command:

$ gen mocha

What you should see in the terminal

If completed successfully, you should see both starting and finished events in the terminal, like the following:

[00:44:21] starting ...
...
[00:44:22] finished ✔

If you do not see one or both of those events, please let us know about it.
