Vue, Express, MongoDB full-stack JS Boilerplate

Known Vulnerabilities Node 10 VueJS 2 Webpack 4

This is a full stack webapp boilerplate project with VueJS + ExpressJS + MongoDB. It is NOT an out-of-box project. I make it in order to create an up-to-date starter repo which contains all important functions (user signup, login, oauth, profile, ...etc) except the business-logic. So when neccessary I can create a new webapp and only need to develop the business logic.

This is just my personal boilerplate, it may or may not be a good fit for your project(s). Inspired by dstroot/skeleton and sahat/hackathon-starter

If you like my work, please donate. Thank you!
