@retailmenot/roux

The SDK for the Roux component architecture, Roux ingredient spec, and a node interface to a pantry.

Build Status Coverage Status

Installation

npm install @retailmenot/roux

Usage

var roux = require('@retailmenot/roux');

var pantry = roux.initialize({
  name: 'my-pantry',
  path: 'path/to/my/pantry',
  predicates: {
    less: /^index.less$/
  }
});

API

initialize

Initialize a Pantry instance for a pantry of ingredients. This method returns a promise of the initialized instance and also accepts an optional Node.js-style callback that can be used in lieu of the promise.

  • config - Configuration object for the Pantry instance
    • name - the name of the pantry
    • path - the path to the pantry
    • [predicates] - optional object of entry point predicates which will be checked against the files contained in each ingredient in the pantry
  • [callback] - Optional Node.js callback

Relocating the ingredients base directory

The pantry path will always be given as the path to the root directory of the module. To support better dev ergonomics and allow for more control of project structure, pantry authors may optionally specify a subdirectory to use as the base path for ingredients by supplying the roux.pantryRoot property in the pantry modules' package.json file.

Entry point predicates

Entry point predicates are the mechanism for discovering the entry points an ingredient exposes. For each predicate, every Ingredient instance in the pantry will have a corresponding property in their entryPoints map. The value of the property will be an object if the predicate matched a file in the ingredient and null otherwise. Predicates for several common entry points are provided by default.

For example, given an ingredient containing the following files:

- ingredient.md
- index.js
- index.hbs

The entryPoints map might look like:

{
  handlebars: {
    filename: 'index.hbs'
  },
  javaScript: {
    filename: 'index.js'
  },
  model: null,
  preview: null,
  previewScript: null,
  sass: null
}

Predicates may be functions or regular expressions (RegExp instances). The predicate will be tested against each file in the root of each ingredient until either a match is found or all files have been checked.

Function predicates are passed the name of the file to be checked as their only argument. If the predicate can decide synchronously, it should return true if the file matches and false otherwise. If the predicate cannot decide synchronously, it should return a promise that will be resolved to true if the file matches and false otherwise.

Default predicates

The following predicates are configured by default:

  • assets - /^assets$/
  • handlebars - /^index.hbs$/
  • javaScript - /^index.js$/
  • model - /^model.js$/
  • preview - /^preview.hbs$/
  • previewScript - /^preview.js$/
  • sass - /^index.scss$/

Pantry

Instances of this class represent a pantry of Roux ingredients. They have the following properties:

  • name - the name of the pantry
  • path - the path to the pantry
  • ingredients - an object mapping from the name of each ingredient in the pantry to a corresponding Ingredient instance

Ingredient

Instances of this class represent a Roux ingredient. They have the following properties:

  • name - the name of the ingredient
  • path - the path to the ingredient
  • pantryName - the name of the pantry this ingredient belongs to
  • entryPoints - an object mapping from the name of a logical entry point ('sass', e.g.) to an object describing the entry point as provided by the ingredient or null if the ingredient does not provide it

entryPoints

The properties of this object are either null or an object with the following properties:

  • filename: the name of the file the ingredient provides for this entry point

parseIngredientPath

Parse the pantry and ingredient names out of an ingredient path. If passed a valid Roux ingredient path, this function returns an object with the pantry and ingredient names:

  • pantry - the name of the pantry, possibly including a namespace
  • ingredient the name of the ingredient

If passed a string that is not a valid path, it returns null. If passed anything else, it throws an Error.

resolve

Resolve a pantry or ingredient to an instance or an entry point to an absolute path to the corresponding file.

If passed a valid pantry name, this function returns a promise of the corresponding Pantry instance. If passed valid names of a pantry and ingredient, it returns a promise of the corresponding Ingredient instance. If passed valid names of a pantry, ingredient, and entry point, it returns a promise of the absolute path to the corresponding entry point file. In all of these cases, an optional configuration object can be passed as the last argument.

If passed invalid names, it throws an error. If the pantry, ingredient, or entry point cannot be found, the returned promise is rejected with an error.

  • pantry: pantry name
  • ingredient - optional ingredient name
  • entryPoint - optional entry point name
  • config - optional configuration object
  • config.pantries - a cache of Pantry instances
  • config.pantrySearchPaths - the paths to search for pantries in if not found in the cache
