swde

Static Web Development Eviroment

swde will scaffold a flexible enviroment for developing static web pages or components.

  • Mustache is used to render HTML
  • LESS is used to render CSS
  • Rollup + Buble is used to render es6 to es5 JavaScript
  • i18n Support
    • exposed in clientside via a i18n global object.
    • exposed in mustache via locals/vars.
  • Minifies html, js, css, svg, png, jpg & fonts
  • Only scaffolds in development enviroments, only minifies in production enviroments

Used to create:

  • Static web pages
  • Web components (custom, riotjs, etc)
  • Libraries
  • Cordova applications (before using device plugins)

Install

npm i @ascari/swde --save

Usage

Create a build.js file

const swde = require('swde');

swde({
  src: './src',
  dist: './dist',
  html: {
    output: {
      index: { // index.html
        path: 'home.html',
        vars: {
          pageName: 'Home'
        },
        elements: {
          header: 'elements/header.html'
        }
      }
    },
  }
})
.then(() => console.log('Build done.'))
.catch(error => console.log(error));

Pro-trip

Use nodemon on build.js to trigger a rebuild when changing files. Use http-server or similar in the dist folder to see the result. Use a live-reload tool to detect file changes and refresh the page.

Swde Configuration

swde comes as a single function that takes either a configuration object or an array of configuration objects to process async in series.

const swde = require('swde');
const config = { ... };
swde(config)
.then(() => console.log("Done!"))
.catch(error => console.log("Error:", error));

The Configuration Object requires two path properties and at least 1 module property to be set in order to execute.

const config = {
  src: 'path/to/source/folder',
  dist: 'path/to/output/folder',
  <some module>: { module options... }
};
swde(config)
.then(() => console.log("Done!"))
.catch(error => console.log("Error:", error));

src

The src property specifies where the source files for the current project can be found. It is determined as the root Working Source Directory, and all modules process source files relative to this path.

Defaults to: ./src

dist

The dist property specifies where the output files for the current project can be found. It is determined as the Working Dist Directory, and all modules place their output relative to this path.

Defaults to: ./dist

Modules

Modules are the backbone of swde and are chosen by including their name or namespace in the Configuration Object.

Currently there are 12 modules:

  • i18n - Locales Module, exposes data in js and html modules.
  • js - Transcompiles between es5 and es6, Minifies JavaScript
  • less - Autoprifixes; better than plain css
  • img - Optimizes & Copies &/or exposes in html module as data-uri
  • font - Optimizes font, scaffolds web fonts & css. WIP
  • svg - Optimizes & Copies &/or exposes in html module
  • video - Copies WIP
  • audio - Copies WIP
  • html - Uses Mustache template engine, Minifies Html, beutifies during dev
  • copy - General-purpose file/folder copying
  • move - General-purpose file/folder moving
  • delete - General-purpose file/folder removal
const config = {
  src: 'path/to/source/folder',
  dist: 'path/to/output/folder',
  js: {
    path: 'js',
    distPath: '.',
    ...
  }
};
swde(config)
.then(() => console.log("Done!"))
.catch(error => console.log("Error:", error));

All module properties must have a Object value or a Boolean true in order to activate the module. Each module has its own set of options or configuration, however, currently all modules have at least a path property that defines a working path relative to the src & dist paths, in order to work with source and output files respectively.

The path property defines the folder paths for both the Working Source Directory and Working Dist Directory destinations. In order to specify different paths, you can use the srcPath and distPath properties to further specify the paths the module will work with.

In the example shown above, The source folder for javascript files will be: <src>/js/ and the output location will be <dist>/.

Modules

Js

The js module places your JavaScript files under one house.

  • A single root javascript file is chosen as index.
  • import & export are used
  • Uses rollup js bundler, transcompiles between es5 & es6 with buble
  • Automatically uses minifiers during production enviroments
  • Scaffolds source folders & files when missing, during development enviroments
  • Creates a single bundle file or exposes code in global variables object, where it is used in the html module to allow you to inline the output in a html file that is created.

Namespace Options & defaults

swde({
  js: {
    path: 'js',
    index: 'index.js',
    filename: 'bundle.js',
    libs: [],
    include: [],
    uglifyOptions: { ... },
  }
})

path String The js module option requires a working path relative to the src & dist options. By default the path is set to "js", so, the working paths are:

  • <src>/js/ For source JavaScript files
  • <dist>/js/ For output files

If you want to specify a different dist path from a src path, you can use the distPath & srcPath options, respectively.

swde({
  js: {
    path: 'js',
    distPath: '.'
    ...
  }
})

The working paths for the previous example where distPath is specified is:

  • <src>/js/ For source JavaScript files
  • <dist>/ For output files

filename String The filename module option is required when the noFile option is false. This specifies what the filename of the compiled JavaScript will be. By default the name of the file is "bundle.js"

The dist options, as well as the js.path or js.distPath options determine the overall path of the JavaScript bundle that is created. filepath is:<dist>/<js.distPath>/<js.filename>

libs Array<String> The libs module option is used to specify javascript files that will not be processed, however they will be concated at the beggining of the bundle that is created. Used to include files like a minified jquery that does not require processing, but should be included within the JavaScript bundle that is created. All paths are relative to the src or srcPath module options.

include Array<String> The include module option is used to specify other paths to search for JavaScript files for when using the import keyword in your project. PATHS ARE NOT RELATIVE MUST BE FULL PATH

uglifyOptions Object Options fed directly to UglifyJs the minifier used by swde.

Examples

A Complex JavaScript-only library or application

require('swde')({
  src: './src',
  dist: '.',
  env: 'production',
  js: {
    path: '.',
    filename: 'complex.min.js',
    include: [
      '/path/to/third-party/libs',
      '/path/to/custom/libs'
    ]
  }
})
.then(() => console.log('Done!'))
.catch(e => console.log(e))

This example takes multiple javascript files from various locations to build a single minified javascript file.

  • Source files are found in ./src
  • Index file is found as ./src/index.js
  • Destination is set to root directory ./complex.min.js

The project folder will loook like the following after a build:

  ./src/index.js
       /other.js
       /other-file.js
  ./complex.min.js
  ./build.js

A Custom component

require('swde')({
  src: './src',
  dist: './dist',
  env: 'production',
  js: {
    path: 'js',
    filename: 'component.min.js',
  },
  less: {
    path: 'less',
    filename: 'component.min.css',
  },
  html: {
    path: 'html',
    distPath: '.',
    output: {
      component: {
        path: 'index.html',
        vars: {
          name: 'ComponentName'
        },
        elements: {
          button: 'elements/button.html',
          textbox: 'elements/textbox.html',
        }
      },
      index: {
        path: 'example.html'
      },
    }
  }
})
.then(() => console.log('Done!'))
.catch(e => console.log(e))

This example takes js, less and html files and outputs a component in html, javascript and css, as well as a example page. This project will allow you to create your own re-usable components.

The project folder will loook like the following after a build:

  ./src
      /js
          /index.js
      /less
          /index.less
      /html
          /index.html
          /example.html
  ./dist
      /index.html
      /component.html
      /component.min.js
      /component.min.css
  ./build.js
