A scaffolding for generating a framework of npm module.

The module is based on template, welcome to add more templates.


  1. Code lint (eslint + prettier)
  2. Unit test support, there is a basic test file ./test/index.spec.js
  3. Rollup configured (So you don't worry about the code compiling)
  4. Typescript support, index.d.ts will be generate by run command npm run build:dts
  5. Demo support, you can modify it or src code and see the changes in real time by running command cross-env PORT=3000 npm run dev
  6. Vue/React component development support




npx Recommend

npx @livelybone/npm-module-generator [directory] [--template] [cmd]

If you've previously installed @livelybone/npm-module-generator globally via npm install -g @livelybone/npm-module-generator, we recommend you uninstall the package using npm uninstall -g @livelybone/npm-module-generator to ensure that npx always uses the latest version.


# npm global install
npm i -g @livelybone/npm-module-generator

module-generator [directory] [--template] [cmd]

This can not ensure that the module is up to date

Module dev

Use the command npm run dev in the module you generated to develop it,you can see the changes by refreshing the demo page


  1. I modified the source code, but never see the changes in the demo page in running npm run dev

    Maybe you should open the chrome dev-tool,and check Disable cache option

  2. The module I generated has no command npm run build:dts, so I cannot generate index.d.ts

    The three templates 'js', 'vue', 'react' do not support for generating index.d.ts temporarily,please update you index.d.ts file manually


  1. update typescript version to support optional chaining
  2. add es6 building support

If you find any bugs or have a feature request, please open an issue on github!
