Setup and Running

  • Prerequisites
    • Node
    • MySQL (or Postgres / Sqlite / MSSQL)
  • Clone repo git clone [email protected]:atulmy/crate.git crate
  • Switch to code directory cd code
  • Configurations
    • Modify /api/src/config/database.json for database credentials
    • Modify /api/.env for PORT (optional)
    • Modify /web/.env for PORT / API URL (optional)
    • Modify /mobile/src/setup/config.json for API URL (tip: use ifconfig to get your local IP address)
  • Setup
    • API: Install packages and database setup (migrations and seed) cd api and npm run setup
    • Webapp: Install packages cd web and npm install
    • Mobile:
      1. Install packages cd mobile and npm install
      2. Install iOS dependencies cd mobile/ios pod install
  • Development
    • Run API cd api and npm start, browse GraphiQL at http://localhost:8000/
    • Run Webapp cd web and npm start, browse webapp at http://localhost:3000/
    • Run Mobile cd mobile and npx react-native run-ios for iOS and npx react-native run-android for Android
  • Production
    • Run API cd api and npm run start:prod, creates an optimized build in build directory and runs the server
    • Run Webapp cd web and npm run start:prod, creates an optimized build in build directory and runs the server

Multi-package automation

  • New developers are advised to run through the above 'setup and running' process before reading further.
  • Optional multi-package automation for faster setup and easier dev environment initiation.
  • No need to cd to sub-folders unless working with mobile or running a production build.
  • Once Node, MySQL, repo clone and configuration are setup correctly

Why open source a project and not a boilerplate or framework?

  • While building a new project with Node, you can basically start scratch, adding libraries and tools as you go on building it further.
  • Comparing with any other languague, you usually start with a framework, for example, Laravel (PHP), Django (Python) or Ruby on Rails (Ruby) which includes a ton of features and codebase which you never end up using.
  • I've personally found, learning by going through a good project codebase step by step while building your own project helps in ease of understanding and remembering
