│   └── login.js
└── yarn.lock

And with the --run flat, what you can do is as soon as Genge finish creating thought files and folder, it will run the app right a way

Remove your app

Install packages

Once Genge finish create the files, then it will start install some necessary packages such as express

By defualt Genge will run:

$ npm install

But if you want to use the Yarn, what you can do it using that yarn flat --yarn

$ yarn install

Runing the app

You can use the --run flat to tell Genge run the app as soon as everything is OK

You can also use the --open flat to tell Gegen then everything is OK, open the browser and load your express app

PS: Require the --run flat to do so

│   ├── login.js
│   └── pony/
│       └── ponyville/
