Wrapup WebBuilder

WebBuilder is an experimental builder, which lets you download wrapup'd JavaScript files. See also wrapup why you should use wrapup and Node-style Modules for browser JavaScript Code.

Idea

The idea is that the user will see an JavaScript Editor field (CodeMirror) where he or she can customize the main.js file, using require() calls, export it on global, or don't export at all.

With a simple interface with buttons and select fields, a main.js file can be generated in the Editor. By giving the user access to the editor adds extra power for advanced users.

Goals

  • Add checkboxes to help the user include several packages or not by commenting or uncommenting lines in the editor.
  • Select which packages and which versions the build should include.
  • Download several packages from NPM. It could build a packages.json which defines the packages and versions.

This app is built with:

  • Node.js
  • Express.js
  • Jade
  • Stylus
  • Wrapup
  • CodeMirror

Installation

git clone git://github.com/arian/wrapup-webbuilder.git
cd wrapup-webbuilder
npm install
git submodule init
node ./bin/createBaseModules.js
node index.js

Modules and versions that can be downloaded

In package.json there is a field modules. This are npm package names and their versions from npm. These are the packages and versions a user can download. Before they can be downloaded however, the packages have to be downloaded locally to the modules directory. This can be done with the following command.

node ./bin/createBaseModules.js

The modules folder will now contain folders like prime@0.0.5 or elements@0.0.7. These are the packages the download will symlink to and create a build with wrapup.
