Rispa v4.4.0

ris is the Rispa CLI command line utility that allows to set up  project structure, manage plugins & run generators.

What's Rispa?

Rispa is a simple project management solution with a powerful command-line utility JavaScript applications. It's organized as a mono repository with a plain interface for integration and the specification for creating your own plug-ins. Projects can be different, such as frontend or backend applications. Rispa is based on a modular infrastructure and organized as the plug-ins that can be re-used for various projects.

Getting started


Install it once globally:
yarn global add @rispa/cli
npm install -g @rispa/cli
You will need to have Node >= 7.10 on your machine.

Creating project

To create project, run:
ris new project-name
cd project-name
It will create a directory called project-name inside the current folder.
Inside that directory, it will generate the initial project structure and install the selected plugins:
rispa.json is an entry point of RISPA project, it contains information about current project.


Development mode
To create project in development mode, run:
ris new --mode=dev
Project will be generated without Subtree usage.

Managing plugins

ris add

To add plugins, run inside project directory:
ris add rispa-eslint-config

ris add
It will display available plugins. Press space to select plugins for installation, then press enter to install selected plugins.
If you want to add plugin via git url, run:
ris add git:https://github.com/rispa-io/rispa-core.git
It will add rispa-core plugin via git url to current project.

ris update

To update installed plugins, run inside project directory:
ris update
It will pull changes to all installed plugins in current project.
Pulling changes works through the git interface.

ris remove

Plugin removal is an unsafe operation, because, it doesn't make changes to the client code and requires corrections by user.

To numerate project changes, run inside project directory:
ris numerate

Run local version

If you launched the globally installed CLI and there will be local version found, the call will be redirected to the local version.


We use Subtree merge strategy for plugins.


Generated project based on Lerna monorepo structure.


Plugins are a part of monorepo modules, they extend the project functionality. @rispa/core - is an entry point for all plugins, providing enhancements and correct initialization of connected plugins. List of available plugins can be seen here.


To see the full details of an error, run CLI with ENV:
DEBUG=rispa:* ris new

Start your project

Create your first project using RISPA or create your own plug-in for the project structure. All this is not dependent on what kind of framework you want to use.
