    A CLI to create projects at Mile Two

    npm package npm downloads

    npx create-m2-app

    Getting Started


    You need to install node version >=14.18.0 to run this CLI tool. Check your node version with:

    node -v

    You can install the latest version on

    Create a new project

    npx create-m2-app

    Select a template and get coding 😎

    Why would I use this?

    If you're familiar with the templates and enjoy the starting point given by the Mile Two team, using this CLI gives you added functionality such as next-auth credential login, ability to switch database setup from SQLite to Postgres, and control over starting UI and DB ports. Most of us require one of those extra configurations and this CLI will save you time automating things that can take hours like setting up and freeing up ports for your docker setup for example.


    Aiming to cut down on the start time, we've templated out a few of our favorite tools and frameworks. At Mile Two we mostly use React projects and Node.js backend with Postgres databases. The templates below should reflect those configurations to include standard sets of tools we use such as TypeScript and Material-UI.

    What's on the Horizon?
