Generator MO

Build Status


My personal generator for Yeoman with some useful stuff e.g. Chaplin, unit testing, functional tests and some helpers. It has enabled LiveReload. Every sub-generator creates a file with a specfic naming yo mo:controller VodooFoo creates in javascripts/app/controllers. If you enable unit tests then it creates the spec file in tests/busterjs/Specs/App/Controllers/ as well. All generated files are in CoffeeScript - because we love it :-).
