Installation

Prerequisites

  • npm is a package manager for the JavaScript programming language.
  • node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser.
  • git is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. It is primarily used for source code management in software development.

Quickstart

npm install -g mevn-cli
mevn init <appname>

Available Commands

MEVN-CLI offers the following set of commands:-

command description
mevn init <appname> Scaffolds a MEVN stack project in the current path
mevn serve Serves the client/server side template locally
mevn add <deps> Adds additional dependencies as required on the go
mevn generate Generates component files for the client and CRUD boilerplate template for the server based on MVC architecture
mevn codesplit Lazy load components as required
mevn dockerize Serves the webapp as multi-container Docker applications
mevn deploy Deploys the webapp to a cloud service of choice
mevn info Prints debugging information about the local environment

Features

  • It allows Developers to build webapps with ease in which all the local environment setup is being taken care of. All they have to do is to focus on writing actual code.
  • It uses ES6 syntax, which is developer-friendly and keeps the code simpler and smaller.
  • The whole project is done in modules(thanks to ES6 syntax) which enhances user readability and leads to compact code.
  • MEVN-CLI simplifies developer workflow by generating boilerplate code as required and automating redundant tasks.

Contributing

How do I contribute?

  1. Ensure you have no "dummy" files left, if you do then add them to the bottom of .gitignore.
  2. Fork and clone our repository.
  3. Make your life-changing changes.
  4. Run npm run build which generates a lib directory with the transpiled es5 code.
  5. Fire in npm link to test everything works fine.
  6. Commit and push your changes.
  7. Make a detailed pull request.

npm link creates a symlink in the global folder making the mevn command globally available within your local development environment

Why should I contribute?

Contributing helps people and simply makes the world a better place, Without contributors this project would cease to exist.

How should I write a commit message?

This project uses Commitlint to check if the commit messages meet the conventional commit format. The full pattern is:

type(scope?): subject #scope is optional

body? #body is optional

footer? #footer is optional

Following that pattern, your commit messages should look like these:

feat: activate open collective
chore: correct typo

It should be "guest" and not "gest"
refactor(cli): drop support for node 6

BREAKING CHANGE: you will need to update your node version to keep using this CLI
This closes #123

What if I cannot code or do not like it?

You can always write documentation, most repositories lack in it.

What is next?

Nothing! You're done and ready to get coding!
