    An extremely-opinionated Node app framework. Écrit is highly oriented toward readability, accessibility and logical, intuitive code organization. MongoDB is the database of choice here.
    Use this framework as a more versatile alternative to Ghost or Wordpress, or if you've used a similar framework like Sails but prefer Literate CoffeeScript as much as we do.

    Install

    First, make sure you have a Mongo database running somewhere.
    If you're using a hosted service like Compose, have your database's URL, username and password on hand, you'll need them for the following steps.

    Note: If you're just developing or want to use a self-hosted MongoDB, you'll need to Install MongoDB if it's not already installed. Make sure you run mongod (may require sudo) and in another Terminal, confirm the DB is running with netstat -an | grep 27017. If you get any results, Mongo is running.

    Next, install Écrit via NPM. Open up your Terminal and type

    npm install -g ecrit

    The -g flag is mandatory, as this is a command-line tool.

    Now you're good to go! Type ecrit -v to confirm you've installed it and see which version you're using.

    Quick Start

    ecrit create exampleApp  
    cd exampleApp && ecrit start
    

    Commands

    ecrit create <app name>

    Creates an app at folder <app name> within the current working directory.
    If the folder doesn't exist, it will be created.
    If the folder exists and is empty, Écrit will copy a new app to the directory.
    If the folder exists and is not empty, Écrit will return an error.

    ecrit start <environment>

    Starts an Écrit app. Must be within <app name>, cannot be invoked from subdirectories or parent(s).
    If no <environment> provided, defaults to 'development'.

    If called with production, Écrit automatically launches your app as a cluster of processes in the background and load-balances them between all CPU threads for production use.

    ecrit show <app name>

    Shows info about an Écrit app cluster with the given <app name>.
    If no <app name>, assumes current directory.

    ecrit restart <app name>

    Restarts an Écrit app cluster (0s downtime!) with the given <app name>.
    If no <app name>, assumes current directory.

    ecrit stop <app name>

    Stops an Écrit app cluster with the given <app name>.
    If no <app name>, assumes current directory.

    ecrit destroy <app name>

    Destroys an Écrit app cluster with the given <app name>.
    If no <app name>, assumes current directory.

    ecrit test [option]

    Runs unit tests for the framework. Currently only --console option is supported.
