Creating an App
To create a new app, run:
create-burdy-app my-app cd my-app
It will create a directory called
my-app inside the current folder.
Inside that directory, it will generate the initial project structure and install necessary dependencies:
. ├── node_modules ├── project │ ├── admin │ ├── index.tsx │ ├── types │ ├── types.d.ts │ ├── index.ts ├── docker-compose.yml ├── Dockerfile ├── package.json ├── tsconfig.json └── [...]
Entry points in Burdy are based on the two files:
project/admin/index.tsx(Admin) is used for adding functionality on UI (React) side of the application.
project/index.ts(Server) index.ts is used for adding functionality to server side of application.
Out of the box, we get:
- Automatic transpilation and bundling (with webpack and babel)
- Hot code reloading
- Production building script
Once the installation finishes, you can run some commands in your project:
npm run dev or
Runs the app in the development mode.
Open http://localhost:4000/admin to view it in the browser.
The page will reload if you make edits.
You will also see any errors in the console.
