Quick Start (Rest APIs)

The quickest way to get started with nodejs-backpack is to utilize the executable to generate an REST APIs as shown below:

Step1: Create an empty directory:

mkdir NodeJs-REST-APIs

Step2: Enter into directory:

cd NodeJs-REST-APIs

Step3: Run Command:

nodejs-backpack sample:files
  • File "sample-app.js", "sample-package.json" & ".sample-env" created in the root directory.

  • Rename sample files to "app.js", "package.json" & ".env" which are created in the root directory.

  • Update .env > DB=mongodb+srv... with valid connection.

PORT=3000
DB="mongodb+srv://........mongodb.net/node_backpack"
JWT_SIGNATURE=node_backpack
HOST=http://localhost:3000

Step4: Run Command:

npm install

Step5: Run Command:

nodejs-backpack make:schema Tests

Step6: Run Command:

nodejs-backpack make:apis Test --url=tests --schema=Tests
  • Rename schema name in comand as per your requirement nodejs-backpack make:apis Test --url=tests --schema=Tests.
  • Example: nodejs-backpack make:apis ROUTE_NAME --url=ROUTE_URL --schema=SCHEMA_NAME.
  • Note: SCHEMA_NAME must exist in model directory /models/SCHEMA_NAME

Step7: Install 'nodemon' on global level for development purpose:

npm install nodemon -g

Step8: Now your APIs are ready to use and Server your project with:

npm run dev

Step9: Open Postman and create new collection and check the below apis:

  • Based on my command, nodejs-backpack make:apis Test --url=tests --schema=Tests.
  • ROUTE_NAME = Test
  • ROUTE_URL = tests
  • SCHEMA_NAME = Tests
  • Below are list of APIs created by commands .../api/ROUTE_URL:
  • Get List API: GET: http://localhost:3000/api/tests?page_no=1&page_limit=20&search= (Parameters: page_no, page_limit, search)
  • Get Detail API: GET: http://localhost:3000/api/tests/64a41036174844d0394e7b2f
  • Store API: POST: http://localhost:3000/api/tests (Body-Parameters: based on model schema)
  • Update API: PUT: http://localhost:3000/api/tests/64a41036174844d0394e7b2f (Body-Parameters: based on model schema)
  • Delete API: DELETE: http://localhost:3000/api/tests/64a41036174844d0394e7b2f

Quick Start (Authentication APIs)

The quickest way to get started with signup, register, forgot-password, reset-password, get-profile API's using nodejs-backpack is to utilize the executable to generate an REST APIs as shown below:

Step1: Run Command:

nodejs-backpack make:auth
  • Under ./routes/* 'IndexRoute.js' and 'AuthRoute.js' file will be create/updated.
  • 'AuthController.js' file will be create in the './controllers/AuthController.js' folder with all neccessary logics.
  • 'AuthMiddleware.js' file will be create in the './middleware/AuthMiddleware.js' folder with all neccessary JWT token verification logics.
  • mailtrap.js file will be create in the './config/mailtrap.js' folder where you can configure SMTP mail credentials.
  • Under ./models/* 'User.js' and 'ResetToken.js' file will be create.

Step2: Open Postman and create new collection and check the below apis:

  • Below are list of APIs created by commands .../api/ROUTE_URL:
  • Register API: POST: http://localhost:3000/api/register (Body-Parameters: first_name, last_name, email, password)
  • Login API: POST: http://localhost:3000/api/login (Body-Parameters: email, password)
  • Forgot Password API: POST: http://localhost:3000/api/forgot-password (Body-Parameters: email)
  • Reset Password API: POST: http://localhost:3000/api/reset-password (Body-Parameters: email, password, reset_token). Note: Forgot password reset link will contain 'reset_token' on mail.
  • Logout API: GET: http://localhost:3000/api/logout
  • Get Profile API: GET: http://localhost:3000/api/get-profile
