  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • hackathon-starter

    A boilerplate for Node.js web applications

    A) This is a great starter with auth, and a bunch of api examples. I started my project with this, and it’s been great, but I recently found out that there’s also a TS version by Microsoft of the same starter. I think that it’s opinionated enough for someone new to this ecosystem. (Ps: I think you’re better off switching the templating language from pug to ejs. It’s pretty php-like)

  • TypeScript-Node-Starter

    A reference example for TypeScript and Node with a detailed README describing how to use the two together.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • Nest

    A progressive Node.js framework for building efficient, scalable, and enterprise-grade server-side applications on top of TypeScript & JavaScript (ES6, ES7, ES8) 🚀

    There's plenty of highly opinionated frameworks in nodejs as well. For example, AdonisJS (very similar to Laravel), NestJs, Loopback, etc. the difference is that they're not as popular as laravel is to php.
