Nodejs Express Mongoose Demo
This is a demo node.js application illustrating various features used in everyday web development, with a fine touch of best practices. The demo app is a blog application where users (signing up using facebook, twitter, github and simple registrations) can create an article, delete an article and add comments on the article.
Want to build something from scratch? use the boilerplate app
- Checkout the apps that are built using this approach
- The wiki is wip, it has some information about the way application is setup.
$ git clone git://github.com/madhums/node-express-mongoose-demo.git $ npm install
NOTE: Do not forget to set the facebook, twitter, google, linkedin and github
development env, you can simply copy
config/env/env.json and just replace the
values there. In production, it is not safe to keep the ids and secrets in
a file, so you need to set it up via commandline. If you are using heroku
checkout how environment variables are set here.
If you want to use image uploads, don't forget to set env variables for the imager config.
$ export IMAGER_S3_KEY=AWS_S3_KEY $ export IMAGER_S3_SECRET=AWS_S3_SECRET $ export IMAGER_S3_BUCKET=AWS_S3_BUCKET
$ npm start
(Note: When you do npm start,
NODE_PATH variable is set from package.json start script. If you are doing
node server.js, you need to make sure to set this)
Then visit http://localhost:3000/
$ npm test
