Express & ES6 REST API Boilerplate

This is a straightforward boilerplate for building REST APIs with ES6 and Express.

Tip: If you are using Mongoose, you can automatically expose your Models as REST resources using restful-mongoose.

Getting Started

# clone it
git clone
cd express-es6-rest-api

# Make it your own
rm -rf .git && git init && npm init

# Install dependencies
npm install

# Start development live-reload server
PORT=8080 npm run dev

# Start production server:
PORT=8080 npm start

Docker Support

cd express-es6-rest-api

# Build your docker
docker build -t es6/api-service .
#            ^      ^           ^
#          tag  tag name      Dockerfile location

# run your docker
docker run -p 8080:8080 es6/api-service
#                 ^            ^
#          bind the port    container tag
#          to your host
#          machine port
