Redis

Mac (using homebrew):

brew install redis

Linux:

sudo apt-get install redis-server

COPY .env.example to .env

cp .env.example .env

Note: I highly recommend installing nodemon.

nodemon is a tool that helps develop node.js based applications by automatically restarting the node application when file changes in the directory are detected. nodemon does not require any additional changes to your code or method of development. nodemon is a replacement wrapper for node, to use nodemon replace the word node on the command line when executing your script. npm install -g nodemon.

API Start

npm run start
npm run start:local # with nodemon

Docker compose

docker-compose up -d --build
docker-compose -f docker-compose.dev.yml up --build # with nodemon

ESlint Start

npm run lint
npm run lint:write # with prefix --fix
