Switch branches/tags

Name already in use

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Almost the same as project-stub but with BEMTREE and Express.

Build Status


git clone
cd bem-express
npm i


npm run dev

will run initial enb make command and then start the server with nodemon which will restart it on any server file update. Also chokidar will watch for changes in *.blocks/** and rebuild the project automatically. Then livereload will update the page in the browser.

You may also set NO_LIVERELOAD env variable to switch livereload off:

NO_LIVERELOAD=1 npm run dev

You may also run rebuild manually with enb make or with external watcher (e.g. npm run watch). To switch off automatic rebuild use NO_AUTOMAKE env variable:

NO_AUTOMAKE=1 npm run dev


YENV=production enb make
NODE_ENV=production node server


Templating starts in root block which replaces itself with page or any other context (if specified as argument to render function).

Pro tips

Run server in dev mode with NODE_ENV=development environment variable (nodemon will set it for you).

In dev mode

  • Add ?json=1 to URL to see raw data
  • Add ?bemjson=1 to URL to see BEMJSON generated with BEMTREE templates.
