Installation and generation of project

First, install Yeoman and generator-modern-protractor using npm (we assume you have pre-installed node.js).

npm install -g yo
npm install -g generator-modern-protractor

Make new folder for your project, and open it:

mkdir my-shiny-automation-project
cd my-shiny-automation-project

Then generate your new project (will be unpacked in current location, no subfolder):

yo modern-protractor

Follow instructions that will appear in terminal, to provide project name and baseUrl properties.

After generation, dependencies should be installed automatically, chromedriver downloaded and super-simple test will be executed. If everyting is passed correctly - you are good to go! Open README.MD in newly generated project and follow its instructions.

Feel free to learn more about Yeoman.
