Create Burdy App

The easiest way to create a Burdy application.


npm install -g create-burdy-app

create-burdy-app my-app
cd my-app/
npm run dev

Open http://localhost:4000 to view your running app. When you're ready for production, run npm run build then npm run start.

Start Coding Now

You don't need to install or setup Webpack or Babel. They come packaged with burdy, so you can just start coding.

After running create-burdy-app, you're good to go!

Getting Started


Install it once globally:

npm install -g create-burdy-app

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 yarn dev

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.

npm run build or yarn build

Builds the app for production to the .burdy/build folder.
It correctly bundles React in production mode and optimizes the build for the best performance.

npm run start or yarn start

Starts the application in production mode. The application should be compiled with `npm run build` first.

Now you're ready to code & deploy your app!
