I like building up a project from small parts but sometimes it’s good to try using a full framework to see what parts I’m missing. Today I tried starting a mean.js app with yeoman. It comes with a lot preconfigured, including five different authentication options, and since I chose it, an articles model. I removed four of the five authentication modules and changed the name of Article to Bin. In the process I found where things are stored in mean.js. It seems to do a good job of following the rails mantra of Convention Over Configuration.
- The Code (unfinished, and most of it isn’t mine, the commits show what I did)
I want to return to this experiment and get it working the rest of the way and deployed on Heroku. The basic idea is a minimalistic jsfiddle.
