Getting Started

What is BEARD?

Trick question. Everyone knows what a beard is, but what is a B-E-A-R-D? This:

"Icon made by Freepik from"

twitter (B)ootstrap - (E)xpress - (A)ngular - (R)equrie - Juggling(D)B stack.

Twitter Bootstrap

Express JS

Angular JS


Basically, it's a combined client and server technology stack to get you quickly started developing HTML5 applications. I refrain from saying web applications because this stack could be used with node-webkit to create some very interesting desktop applications.

The BEARD tech stack is based on some very handy tools




BEARD Generators

The BEARD generators are broken up into fairly straight forward components

  • BEARD Server
  • BEARD Client -- Client Module

To install generator-beard-seed from npm, run:

$ npm install -g generator-beard-seed

Create the directory for your killer application and move into that directory

$ mkdir killer
$ cd killer

Finally, initiate the generator:

$ yo beard-seed

Playing with BEARD

The goal of BEARD is to create a friendly tech stack that can be built on quickly.

Documentation and working examples coming soon.

If you have any suggestions, please feel free to create a pull request.

Looking forward to seeing what applications are created.
