New Project

We’ll use jets new to generate a new Jets project.

jets new demo --mode html

We’re using the --mode html option to generate a Jets project designed for HTML apps. Note that the default mode is HTML, so it’s optional in this case.

❯ jets new demo
      create  .env
      create  .gitignore
      create  .rspec
      create  Gemfile

Application Config

Let’s take a look at the starter application config. It looks something like this:


module Demo
  class Application < Jets::Application
    config.load_defaults 5.0
    config.project_name = "demo"
    config.mode = "html"

The project_name will be used when we deploy this project. The project that is deployed will have the environment added, IE: demo-dev.

You can override settings for each environment with the files in config/environments. Example:


Jets.application.configure do
  config.cache_classes = false
  config.eager_load = false
  config.logging.event = true

For more settings see the Config Reference.

Next, we’ll review the generated project files.
