Hi, I'm bones
I'm a happy little skeleton. You can clone me to use as a starter on your projects! I have React, Redux, Sequelize, and Express all just rattling around in here ready to go.
I need node >= 6.7.0
If you don't have it, I'll complain and tell you how to install it.
1. Make me into something!
Create a git repo however you want to. You can fork me on Github, but you can only do
that once (so weird!). You can also create a Github repo and clone it, or just do
git init in an empty directory on your machine.
After you have a repo on your machine:
git remote add bones https://github.com/queerviolet/bones.git git fetch bones git merge bones/master
And then you'll have me! If I change—which I probably will—you can get the most recent version by doing this again:
git fetch bones git merge bones/master
2. I need a name.
I don't have a name. I think I used to have one, but it turned to dust right along with my heart and liver and pituitary gland and all that stuff.
Anyway, I'll need one. Give me a name in
3. Start my dusty heart
Short and sweet:
npm install npm run build-watch npm start
npm start doesn't build, so watch out for that. The reason it doesn't build is because you
probably want to watch the build and run me in separate terminals. Otherwise, build errors get
all mixed in with HTTP request logging.
/app has the React/Redux setup.
main.jsx is the entry point.
/db has the Sequelize models and database setup. It'll create the database for you if it doesn't exist,
assuming you're using postgres.
/server has the Express server and routes.
start.js is the entry point.
/bin has scripts. (Right now it has one script that creates a useful symlink.)
.jsx files, unless
require makes for cleaner code.
I use two spaces, no semi-colons, and trailing commas where possible. I'll have a linter someday soon.
