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 out.
- 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||Bootstraps a MEVN stack based boilerplate template of choice|
|mevn serve||Serves the client/server side template locally|
|mevn add||Adds additional plugins as required on the go|
|mevn generate||Generates component, model, route, controller, and DB config files|
|mevn codesplit||Lazy load components as required|
|mevn dockerize||Serves the client and server in separate docker containers|
|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 he/she has to do is to focus on writing actual code.
- Its written in ES6 syntax, which is a developer-friendly syntax that keeps the code simpler and smaller.
- The whole project is done in modules(thanks to ES6 syntax) which enhances user readability and much more compact code.
- Mevn-CLI simplifies the entire workflow by generating boilerplate code as required, automating redundant tasks etc.

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!
