Some healthy procrastination.
Firestarter is my github repo that sets up an express project according to my express cheatsheet. Hopefully it's actually useful as building it out was procrastination as I didn't want to start the real project I have in mind for it. https://nivethan.dev/devlog/express-cheatsheet.html This application uses the following global packages: - nodemon - code watcher and runner - pm2 - process manager I install the following packages for the project: - bcrypt - library for password hashing - better-sqlite3 - added for sessions backend - better-sqlite3-session-store - sessions backend - dotenv - environment variables - express-fileupload - adds support for file uploads - express-session - adds support for sessions - helmet - adds secure headers in production - hpp - stops queries from being arrays - method-override - adds support for put, patch and delete - sequelize - adds an orm - sqlite3 - adds a database I changed the `<% %>` delimiters in ejs to `\<? ?>`. This project has a working register and login system. I also have a sample nginx configuration in this folder. cp sample-nginx.conf /etc/nginx/sites-available/project-name.conf ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/project-name.conf /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ service nginx restart Once the project is installed and nginx is configured. You can start developing. npm run start-dev
