Elder.js Template Project

node version

This is a project template for Elder.js apps. The template lives at and the Elder.js source is here:

Here is a demo of the template:

Get started

To create a new project based on this template using degit:

npx degit Elderjs/template elderjs-app
cd elderjs-app

Install the dependencies:

npm install # or just yarn

Start Project:

npm start # or npm run dev

Navigate to localhost:3000. You should see your app running.

This spawns a development server, so simply edit a file in src, save it, and reload the page to see your changes.

You can also see a live demo of this template:

What to Expect

  • A dev server is watching your files for changes. It will restart when it needs to.
  • Rollup is watching your files for changes. It will restart when it needs to.
  • If your elder.config.js has @elderjs/plugin-browser-reload': {} in it's plugins, your browser will automatically restart after the server restarts.


If you are looking for a faster development experience run npm run esbuild this is experimental but will be improving rapidly.

To Build HTML for Production:

npm run build

Let the build finish. It will put all of your statically generated files in ./public.

If you wish to preview you can use:

npx sirv-cli public

To Run in SSR Mode for Production:

npm run serve
