sane which has same goal but go further.MEEN is deprecated, please see
After some search, i found there have been some similiar solutions like meanjs and hackathon. However the first one using angularjs as frontend framwork while i prefer ember, and the latter one only focus on backend side.
Emberjs the frontend mvc framwork
express the app server
the express app follow below folder structure
- using middlewares
- using route middlewares
mongoDB the database
- mongoose the ODM tool
Nodejs the platform
The folder structure are following the "nature" way, express app as the parent project, ember app in express's public folder. let express serve complied ember static files. This solution is easy but have duplicated package.json(so node_modules as well), and cli commands works separated so no communication, for example 'ember build --wath' and can not notify express that ember is rebuild. Need improment later.
Make sure you have installed all prerequisites on your development machine.
- Node.js - Download & Install Node.js and the npm package manager, if you encounter any problems, you can also use this GitHub Gist to install Node.js.
- MongoDB - Download & Install MongoDB, and make sure it's running on the default port (27017).
- Bower - You're going to use the Bower Package Manager to manage your front-end packages, in order to install it make sure you've installed Node.js and npm, then install bower globally using npm:
$ npm install -g bower
Clone this repo and install Node.js dependencies, in the application folder run this in the command-line:
$ npm install
Running Your Application
After the install process is over, you'll be able to run your application.
# open terminal, at project root. npm start # open another terminal, at project root. cd public ember build --watch
Your application should run on the 3000 port so in your browser just go to http://localhost:3000
That's it! your application should be running by now, If you encounter any problem try the issue tracker.
