A Command line interface for instantly building an express server.
Global Express using different strategies :

  • Scaling on a single machine, the common concept is to have multiple processes running on the same port.
  • Create models, graphql (resolvers and schema), rest-api (controllers, routes and services) and doc-api (swagger) in matter of seconds.
  • Server configuration which includes port, host, http/https, page limit, rate limit suspend time and max hit per IP.

Contributing and Internal Documentation

The global express family welcomes any contributor, small or big. We are happy to elaborate, guide you through the source code and find issues you might want to work on! To get started have a look at our documentation on contributing.


Note: The experience this CLI provides does not work as smooth in Git Bash terminal, since it is not an interactive terminal, but if you are using Git Bash inside VS Code, then there are no problems, I found no complications using any other terminal.

Feel free to post issues if you run into any.
