Chaos is a boilerplate used to generate HTML5 interactive standalone web applications.

Chaos is based on the 'carngorhm' design pattern used to create flash / flex style web applications. If in another life you were a Flex / Flash developer and want a familiar developing landscape or you are looking for portable web application, you are in the right place.

Included right out of the box.

  • built in localization using
  • code documentation using
  • pre-loader.
  • grunt build tasks.
  • basic web application scaffolding.
  • simple setup to integrate into any web page.
  • works on all modern browsers; I still need to check older versions of IE.

Install yeoman using NPM.

Make a new directory and cd into it:

mkdir my-new-project && cd $_

Run yo chaos

yo chaos

chaos will ask for a namespace, enter your namespace and hit enter.


  • --skip-install

    Skips the automatic execution of bower and npm after scaffolding has finished.


Available generators:

  • command
  • controller
  • event

  • proxy
  • service
  • singleton
  • view model
  • view
yo chaos:entity [object name]

this is a multiple choice selector, you can also use the 'All' to generate all entities. choose from the available list items, you can select any combination you want.

Typical workflow

yo chaos # generates your application base and build workflow
[enter namespace]
yo chaos:entity blog
[choose view & view model]

NOTE: Do not put beginning or trailing slashes on the directory structure!
