[deprecated] Yeoman generator for Backbone Boilerplate

Backbone Boilerplate generator Build Status

Note: This generator has been deprecated

The Backbone Boilerplate project now has an officially maintained Yeoman generator which we recommend you use instead. Please uninstall your old version of this project and use the other one for maximum happiness.


  • Install it (only once): npm install -g generator-bbb

  • Create a new folder and cd into it: mkdir my-new-project && cd $_

  • Run yo bbb to scaffold out a BBB skeleton app

  • Run grunt to build and grunt server to preview


  • --skip-install

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

  • --test-framework=[framework]

Defaults to mocha. Can be switched for another supported testing framework like jasmine.
