Install

npm install -g architect-init

Plugins

Before running architect-init you must create a config file containing your plugins list.

It's a simple text file with each plugins on a new line.

Example :

firstplugin
firstplugin.secondplugin
thirdplugin
thirdplugin/fourthplugin

With default options (auto structure), this will create the following directory structure :

lib
├─ firstplugin
├─ firstplugin.secondplugin
└─ thirdplugin
    └─ fourthplugin

Run

architect-init

It will then ask you the following questions :

  • Where is stored your plugins list file ?

    Specify the path to your plugins list file created above. Default : plugins.conf

  • Where do you want to store the plugins ?

    The directory where to store plugins. Default : lib/

  • Do you want sub or dotted dirs for plugins ?

    • auto : keep the structure of your plugins.conf file (default)
    • sub : force subdirs for "sub" plugins
    • dotted : force dotted dirs for "sub" plugins
  • Create package.json file for each plugins (yes|no) ?

    Create a default package.json file in each of the created folders. Template of the package.json file is located in tpl/package.json. Default : yes

  • Create main file for each plugins (yes|no) ?

    Create a main JS file in each of the created folders. Template of the main file is located in tpl/main.js. Default : yes

  • Force the creation of files even if they exists (yes|no) ?

    Do you want to replace existing (package.json/main) files in directories ? Default : no

Directory structures

Here is the final structure of plugins with options :

auto

lib
├─ firstplugin
├─ firstplugin.secondplugin
└─ thirdplugin
    └─ fourthplugin

sub

lib
├─ firstplugin
│   └─ secondplugin
└─ thirdplugin
    └─ fourthplugin

dotted

lib
├─ firstplugin
├─ firstplugin.secondplugin
├─ thirdplugin
└─ thirdplugin.fourthplugin
