Minimalistic Boilerplate for FullStack Express and Vue.js applications with PWA support.

To understand how this boilerplate works, see the Nuxt.js documentation.


git clone
cd vue-stack
npm install
npm run dev

Express API (With hot reload in dev mode!)

There is a api directory with the Express API. Each route is mapped to /api.

BodyParser is included by default.



const router = require('express').Router()

// GET /api/greeting
router.get('/greeting', (req, res) => {
	console.log('Hello World!')

module.exports = router

Index.js file

The index.js file is responsible for starting the Express application. The vueStack(app, port) function starts the application on a specific port.

const express = require('express')
const vueStack = require('./vue-stack')
const app = express()

vueStack(app, process.env.PORT || 3000)

The vueStack function returns a Promise.


By default, Vue Stack generates a PWA application en production mode. You can customize its manifest and icons in nuxt.config.js


Command Description
npm run dev Launch a development server on localhost:3000 with hot-reloading.
npm run build Build your application with webpack and minify the JS & CSS (for production).
npm start Start the server in production mode (after running nuxt build).
npm run generate Build the application and generate every route as a HTML file (used for static hosting).

Using Docker

# docker build -t [IMAGE_NAME] .
# docker run -d --name [CONTAINER_NAME] -p [PORT]:3000 [IMAGE_NAME]
