Build Status

A React seeder app for my own convenience so that I can just clone this whenever I need to test out with some React. Clone it, install dependencies and you're good to go.

Quick Start

  1. Install CloudyDay globally with the command
npm install -g cloudyday
  1. Use the following command to run the interactive guided mode to creating your own project:
  1. Start making something!

What's Inside

Server Management

We use ExpressJS for the server.

UI Tools

ReactStrap and Material UI is included depending on which suits your use case.

ReactStrap URL: MaterialUI URL:

FontAwesome is also included for ease of using icons.

Code Quality

ESLint is included. Run ESLint test with npm run test-eslint.

Quality Assurance

Mocha, Chai, Enzyme and Karma are used. Nightwatch should be on the way for feature testing. Run Mocha tests with npm run test-back. Run it continously with npm run test-back-watch.


Cron scripts allowing for periodic running of scripts are available in /cron.

This seeder defines 3 environments: production, test and development.

Getting Started

Project Initialisation

Global Installation

Install the CloudDay package globally by using npm install -g cloudyday.

Create a project by running cloudyday in any folder.

Local Installation

Clone the repository from

Run npm run init to customise your repository.

Project Setup

After cloning, change the repository details to your own using npm run init which will guide you through customising your project and removing existing Git history from the clone.

Install all modules using npm run update.

To setup the database for development, run npm run db-setup-dev. This needs to be run the first time to initialise the database.

To tear down the database for development, run npm run db-teardown-dev. This is useful because Sequelize's removal of seeders does not work as expected sometimes. When that happens, run this script followed by npm run db-setup-dev to restore the base state.

To run the application in production use npm start.

To run the application in development use npm run dev.

To run the application in test use npm run ci.

To use Sequelize use npm run sequelize <SEQUELIZE-CLI-COMMAND HERE>. If using additional flags like --name, add a -- prefix to the command so that flags can be picked up. Example: npm run sequelize -- model:create --name NewModelName

To test the application using Mocha and Istanbul use npm run test-back.

To check code quality using ESLint use npm run test-eslint.

To build the application, run npm run build.

To run all tests, code quality checks and build process use npm test.

Developing on CloudyDay

Assets are stored at /assets and is linked statically at the /assets/** endpoint.

Configurations are located inside /config.

The API is defined at /api and is available via the /api/** endpoint.

The WebView is defined in /webview and consists of the React app entry point.

The Server itself is defined in /server and defines pretty much everything above.

Tests are located inside /test.
