  2. Battle tested
  3. Well defined abstractions (controllers, use case layer, domain model etc).
  4. Works for small and large projects
  5. Follows 12 factor app approach
  6. EcmaScript Modules and latest JS features without transpiling
  7. ES6 classes for Sequalize out of the box
  8. Supports both REST API and JSON RPC (WS)
  9. Continuation Local Storage enabled by default for transactions and logs tracking
  10. Follows security best practices
  11. Docker support
  12. Covered with tests (db dependent tests, code coverage etc)
  13. Built on top of express.js
  14. User management out of the box (in progress)
  15. S3 support out of the box even for local development
  16. SMTP support (with development and testing mocks)
  17. Works in Linux, Mac, Windows

  1. Authtentication with different strategies (FB etc)
  2. CQRS for reports out of the box
  3. Add more secutiry features to eslint static analysis
  4. Add GraphQL support

    - starts app and infrastructure using docker-compose
  • docker:dev:down
    - stops docker-compose from "docker:dev:up"
  • docker:up
    - starts infrastructure (db, smtp-server, imageproxy, adminer, s3-server) using docker-compose
  • docker:down
    - stops docker-compose from "docker:up"
  • start
    - runs app with node (NODE_ENV=production)
  • test:lint
    - runs eslint for: lib/, tests/, app.mjs

  • test:audit
    - runs npm audit
  • test
    - runs all tests: lint, audit, ava, coverage
  • create:admin
    - creates new admin: npm run create:admin -- [email protected] --password=password
  • migration:db
