PERN (postgres, express, react, node) is a framework that allows developers interested in these technologies to get up and running with a minimum of fuss. It's still a work in progress, but it has the following pieces:

  • node/express backend for API calls
  • postgres database with minimal schema to demonstrate functionality
  • React/Redux frontend to demonstrate simple functionality
  • configuration files (e.g., nginx)
  • Instructions on how to set everything up
  • Unit tests
  • Minimal React Native app


Documentation can be found here.
