    blitz.js

    npm Node version bitHound


    Blitz-js is a modular full-stack framework for real-time applications that puts the developer first. Be it frontend development in ES7+, hot-module-replacement for your view, or component-based API endpoints to keep your backend tidy - blitz-js gives you all of that out of the box with no tedious setups. It just works.


    Features

    Blitz-js comes with everything needed to create a full-size web application for modern standards:

    • Vue.js as UI rendering engine
    • Webpack for optimal dev & prod bundling
    • Full OAuth2 integration
    • Pub/Sub model for real-time data
    • Rate limits and caching on a per endpoint-component basis
    • Automatically exposed API endpoints to HTTP and WebSockets
    • Decoupled API servers from CPU intensive endpoints for efficient scaling with docker

    We keep blitz-js fairly opinionated, because it allows us to focus on one solution and make its usage as convenient and effective as possible. However, the fully modular nature of the framework allows to easily modify existing nodes, so you'll never be locked in with what we think is best.


    Getting started in 5 minutes

    Before you get started, make sure you have redis and mongodb running on their default ports.
    If you have to install these first, I apologize for lying about the "5 minutes" in the title. If not, you'll have a blast!

    Install

    Select your project folder and run the following:

    npm init
    npm install blitz-js

    Entrypoint

    Next we'll create index.js as our entrypoint to the server

    // index.js
    const Blitz = require('blitz-js')
    const blitz = new Blitz()
     
    // Load auth, view and api nodes needed for a basic setup
    blitz.bootstrap()

    Ready to go

    Now all we need to do is run

    node index.js

    And blitz-js will automatically create some default API endpoints and views that you can learn the basics from.
    Check out localhost:3000 to have a look at the view server.

    If everything went right, you'll find an interactive tutorial on that server, asking you to hack the site. You'll have to work on the site's own code to fulfill some objectives and proceed. There'll be plenty of tips though, so it shouldn't be too hard. In fact, there's always a full solution available to each objective at all times.


    Getting ready for production

    For advanced usage that you'll need in production, have a look at blitz-js-loader. It lets you load every single node individually, pass custom configs and create your own group of blitz-js nodes.

    We cannot stress enough how important this is for production, especially if you aim to containerize your application, since every node can be split up into a separate process this way.
