    Overview

    The generator comes with jquery and Bootstrap.

    Newly added functionality is the ability to choose between express 3.x setup and express 4.x.

    Get to know more about express 4.x over here and here.

    Added support for the Gruntfile in either coffeescript or javascript Currently working on choosing between gulp and grunt as the build tool

    Installing

    install generator-express-simple by running

    npm install -g generator-express-simple

    Usage

    yo express-simple [appname]

    appname - optional

    Now your app is ready to be run.

    Running

    Removed nodemon from the build task because the new version of nodemon eats up a lot of memory. Install version 0.7.10 of nodemon:

    npm i -g nodemon@0.7.10

    and to start the application run

    nodemon -L --watch [folder] --watch [another folder] --debug app.js

    For more information on using the version 0.7.10 of nodemon check it out over here

    If you are using gulp as your build tool, you will have to start the node inspector tool from another terminal by running

    node-inspector --save-live-edit --web-port=[Number] --hidden=[Array]

    Then in another terminal run

    grunt

    or

    gulp

    to watch and build the application depending on the build tool you chose
