Using Yeoman Generator for Google Polymer

by - 5:37 PM

Building polymer components is quick and easy,  but managing components still require standardization and alignment. To provide a scaffold to application/component, team at Google built scaffold tool called 'Yeoman' and dedicated CLI tool for multiple technologies including Polymer. Yeoman is powerful scaffolding tool that not only streamline components development process,  but also provide a structure to development process, which enforces best practices.

What does it do ?
With a set of commands, Yeoman compile required resources for you and you can skip lots of manual setup . Yeoman is designed to handle configuration and accumulate components for development and  clearly minifies the pain of maintaining minor configurations and making it easy for developer to focus more on application logic

What does it have ? 
Primarily its a combination of 'Yo' which is scaffolding tool,  'Grunt' task manager and 'Bower' a powerful package manager. So clearly with few set of commands, you can built scaffold, download files and test/build/serve it easily
