ZestJS Simple Server Template
From the ZestJS Quick Start at http://zestjs.org/
First ensure both Volo and the Zest-Server command line tools are installed with npm (provided by the nodejs install):.
npm install volo zest-server -g
You will need to run this with admin privileges.
Then create this template with volo:
volo create folder_name zestjs/template-basic-cs
Note: on windows you may need to separately type
npm install from the project folder to download the node dependencies.
zest from the created project folder to run the server.
Then navigate to
http://localhost:8080 in the browser.
Also navigate to
http://localhost:8080/sometext to see routing in action.
To run a build, simply run zest in the production environment, by initiating the site with:
zest start production
from the project folder.
This will build the necessary browser files into one file including -
- Templates are compiled
- CSS and LESS is inlined into script
- CoffeeScript is compiled if using require-coffee
