Project description

Python package to generate app.


pip install korapp

For App Creator


  • A brain is an instruction to generate applications, you can generate any kind of application in any language depending on the brain. Download the brain that you want and put in the location ~/.brain
  • To create new application, use korapp new <appname>
  • Then cd into the new application folder
  • open file to examine and make modification
  • and run korapp gen
  • If you change the mind map, run korapp gen again to regenerate the related files. Note that KorApp will overwrite its generated files so whatever customization you make will be overwritten. So if you want to modify the file, you can use the generated file as template and copy to other file or inherit from them.
  • However, the files created by korapp new will only generate once and not overwritten.

Doc Server

The brain can behave differently from brain to brain. App Creator can learn how each brain work from the document server. To access the document for the brain. cd <brain_dir>   korapp doc The document then can be access from

For Brain Creator

The brain is also work from mind map as well. To create a brain

  • you need to write a mind map which will get run when app creator issue korapp new
  • put any script used by inside script/ directory
  • in the gen/ directory, write mind maps corresponding to the branch that the app creator will be used in the first level branch, i.e., will get run when they use model branch, for pages branch, and so on.
  • put all the script files under same script/ directory.

Example of


The other directory structure are not required by KorApp, it depends on the script to use them.

Korapp New

Korapp new

Korapp new

  • Korapp will first look into and execute each branch. The first level node is command which can be either bash or python (py is the same as python)
  • The second level branch is the script filename that is under script/ directory of the brain.
  • For bash, the script will run brain/script/<name>.sh, the extension .sh will be added automatically.
  • For python, the script will run brain/script/<name>.py, the extension .py will be added automatically.

Korapp Gen Parameters

  • for bash, will run with each node converted to snakecase arguments only first branch level

  • for other, will write node xml into .korapp/node_param.yaml and call as argument to script. The script can access node xml by using utils.get_node_param() like so

    from korapp import utils
    node_param = utils.get_node_param()

Korapp Doc

Each mind map (.mm files) can have accompanied document file in the format of markdown. The doc server will concatenate together, and all .md files in the gen/ directory
