Express-Server Boilerplate

A boilerplate/starter project for quickly building RESTful APIs using Node.js, Express, and Mongoose.

By running a single command, you will get a production-ready Node.js app installed and fully configured on your machine.

Installation 🏭

$ npm install -g express-server-kit

Quick Start 🏃‍♂️

The quickest way to get started with express is to utilize the executable express-server to generate an application as shown below:

Create (and start) the app in current folder:

$ express-server .
$ npm run dev

OR, create (and start) the app (in project_name folder):

$ express-server project_name
$ cd project_name
$ npm run dev

This will basically create this structure in your folder
