iStatic

A static-file dependency manager more than a package manager.

Installation

$ npm install node-istatic -g

Usage

Put a file named static.yaml (refer to the following Configuration) at the root of your project repository. And then, run:

$ istatic pull

Configuration

You can specify any git hosting provider, such as:

hostDict:
  code: http://code.dapps.douban.com/
  gitcafe: git://gitcafe.com/

Note: iStatic has been added githubbitbucket and local by default.

Specify the git repos info (including namehosttag or commit) and the path of the files or directories you need. The default host is github, and the default commit (or tag) is origin/master. These two properties can be omitted. But you need to specify one filemapping (origin: target) at least. It sounds to be a little complicated, here’s a example:

repos:
  arkui:
    host: code
    file:
      ./stylus: ./public/css/arkui/
      ./pics: ./public/pics/

  dexteryy/OzJS:
    tag: 2.5.1
    file:
      ./oz.js: ./public/js/lib/
      ./eventMaster/eventmaster.js: ./public/js/lib/mod/event.js

  /Users/mockee/M3:
    host: local
    commit: 7827c7c605
    file:
      ./define.js: ./public/js/lib/
      ./mod/touch.js: ./public/js/mod/
