node package manager



Trying to save you from configuration. This project is not meant to be everything, but a nice place to start.

Some information you should know before starting:

Setting up the port for production right now is hardcoded to 5000 becuase I wanted this project to work with Dokku from the start.

Please refer to the notes in config.js and src/server/index.js

Running this application for development

npm install
sal -rd

Deploying with Dokku

After you have set up your Dokku server please follow these instructions

Using the sal commandline tool:

npm install sal -g
-------------------------- Sal --------------------------
          use "sal --help" to see all options
  --run, -r   Run a sal application - `sal --run <path>`
  --test, -t  Run your tests
  --new, -n   Create a new Sal project - `sal --new <path>`
  --dev, -d   Set process.env.NODE_ENV to dev
  --prod, -p  Set process.env.NODE_ENV to production
  --kill, -k  Kill all Sal servers (This maps to pm2)
  --help      Show help


By default you get React (JSX), ES6, Typescript, Expressjs, Mocha, and Karma.

VS Code
