Light speed setup for MEVN stack based web-apps
A CLI tool for getting started with the MEVN stack. The acronym “MEVN” stands for “MongoDB Express.js VueJS Node.js”. It offers a super-simple boilerplate template and additional utilities for building a MEVN stack-based webapp. It takes away the hassle of setting up the local development environment which may become a nightmare especially for beginners who are just starting.
- git is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. It is primarily used for source code management in software development.
npm install -g mevn-cli mevn init <appname>
MEVN-CLI offers the following set of commands:-
|mevn init <appname>||Scaffolds a MEVN stack project in the current path|
|mevn serve||Serves the client/server side template locally|
|mevn add [deps] [--dev]||Adds additional dependencies as required on the go|
|mevn generate||Generates component files for the client and CRUD boilerplate template for the server based on MVC architecture|
|mevn codesplit||Lazy load components as required|
|mevn dockerize||Serves the webapp as multi-container Docker applications|
|mevn deploy||Deploys the webapp to a cloud service of choice|
|mevn info||Prints debugging information about the local environment|
- It allows Developers to build webapps with ease in which all the local environment setup is being taken care of. All they have to do is to focus on writing actual code.
- The whole project is done in modules(thanks to ES6 syntax) which enhances user readability and leads to compact code.
- MEVN-CLI simplifies developer workflow by generating the required boilerplate and automating redundant tasks.

Why should I contribute?
Contributing helps people and simply makes the world a better place, Without contributors this project would cease to exist.
How should I write a commit message?
type(scope?): subject #scope is optional body? #body is optional footer? #footer is optional

feat: activate open collective
chore: correct typo It should be "guest" and not "gest"
refactor(cli): drop support for node 6 BREAKING CHANGE: you will need to update your node version to keep using this CLI This closes #123
What if I cannot code or do not like it?
You can always write documentation, most repositories lack in it.
What is next?
Nothing! You're done and ready to get coding!
