If you’re looking to launch an API using NodeJS, here is a very handy scaffolded application starting point: https://github.com/litwicki/nodejs-api

What you get:

  • Logging
  • JWT Authentication
  • MongoDB (via Mongoose) modeling
  • md-seed migration and seed management for MongoDB
  • Docker & Docker-Compose provisioning
  • dotenv environment variable management
  • APIDOC automatically generated documentation

Check out the repository for a quick rundown and getting-started guide, and if you have any questions or issues please don’t hesitate to ask.

Major thank you to danielfsousa and his boilerplate for the starting point of this scaffolding.
