This program generates an Angular 2 application with an arbitrary number of components. The components are nested in a binary tree shape. The program only generates the actual components, in TypeScript form; use whatever mechanism you prefer (such as angular-cli) for the build mechanism.
Each component has two fields; one Input and another locally set. As the components use each other, these fields and bindings are used also.
An NgModule is also generated - the resutls are compatible as of this version with rc.5, and not with any older version of Angular 2.
Optionally, the generated components can be made different on each run, by inserting a meaningless random value. This is useful for stress-testing build tooling - you can this generator in a loop like so (in Bash):
for i in `seq 1 1000`; do angular2-stress-test 500 -r ; sleep 5 ; done
By adjusting the delay (in second) and number of components generated, you can "strees test" any build tool (like angular-cli) which is watching the files and re-building. While such a thing is running, keep an eye on your build tool's CPU and RAM use.
npm install -g angular2-stress-test
cd directory-with-your-components-in-it angular2-stress-test 42
This will generate an application with one application component and 42 additional components. They will be nested in a "binary tree" shape, with a bit of indentation to make this clear on the screen.
The components are compatible easily with angular-cli; you can use CLI to generation an application, then populate it using this tool, and it should run without any further change.
The purpose of this is to make it possible to "stress test" how well your favorite build tooling will fare using applications consisting of highly numerous source code files and components. It can also be used to stress Angular 2 itself, under similar conditions.
