QEDProject is distributed as a Ruby gem. That means you'll need the Ruby programming language installed on your machine along with the RubyGems package manager.
$ gem install qedproject
to get the latest version and all its dependencies.
If you're on Windows, you'll need to install RubyInstaller and the Devkit. See http://rubyinstaller.org/add-ons/devkit/ for more.
If you're on OSX, you need to have XCode installed.
If you're on Ubuntu and you want to use CoffeeScript, you'll need to install NodeJS.
Generate a simple web project
$ qedproject myproject $ cd myproject
Then open the public/index.html file in your browser and get to work. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
To generate a simple web project with CoffeeScript and Sass support, using Guard to monitor files for changes.
qedproject myproject -c -s
Once the project is created, go into the project folder and run the Guard command.
cd myproject guard
Generate a project that minifies CSS and JS files using Jammit. Creates the asset configuration file and a Guardfile.
$ qedproject myproject -a
Create a project with CoffeeScript, Sass, and asset packaging support, using Guard.
$ qedproject myproject -c -s -a
Create a new project using jQuery
$ qedproject myproject -l jquery
Create a new project using jQuery and Backbone
$ qedproject myproject -l jquery,backbone
Create a new project using jQuery and Backbone, but also with Sass, CoffeeScript, and asset packaging.
$ qedproject myproject -l jquery,backbone -c -s -a
If you'd like to create projects where you can do Jasmine testing, use the -t flag.
$ qedproject myproject -l jquery,backbone -c -s -a -t
This will create a suite.html file in the spec folder, and will create a sample spec. If you asked for CoffeeScript, the sample spec will be written in CoffeeSript and the Guardfile will be modified to convert specs to js files.
And if you used jQuery, the jasmine-jquery library will be added to your test suite.
You can use the
-r flag to add LiveReload support to the project.
$ qedproject myproject -r -c -s -a -t -l jquery
You can make your browser refresh when you change your files. To do that, first open another window and type
$ cd myproject $ qedproject --server
which starts up a web server on port 1337 that serves up your project's
public folder. Then install one of the LiveReload plugins for your browser and connect your browser by visiting http://localhost:1337 and activating LiveReload.
To get the browser plugins, visit http://help.livereload.com/kb/general-use/browser-extensions
By default, the CLI tool will not overwrite files with the same name. If you want to replace files, pass the -o flag.
