Feathers Nuxt Save

A Feathers + Nuxt boilerplate for kick starting server-side rendered VueJS real-time applications.

Project README


A Feathers + Nuxt demo/boilerplate



This project uses Feathers. An open source web framework for building modern real-time applications.

It also uses NeDB to store users. This is because NeDB handles data persistence in text files and it won't require you to have MongoDB, PostgreSQL, or any other database installed to just try this boilerplate.

Feathers and Vue/Nuxt integration is done through the amazing feathers-vuex.

Remember to set these environment variables when running in production:

PORT=3030 # or whatever port you want to use
API_URL=https://yourappdomain.com/ # this is where the API is running
AUTH_SECRET=[super-secret-hash] # make it long (>512 chars), and NEVER check it into source control

After that, you can safely start the application by using npm start, which will trigger a Nuxt build and then start the app.

Here's a working demo running on Heroku.

⚠️ Support

You may use this boilerplate for whatever projects you want, but beware that updates to it will be scarse. You're very much welcome to contribute if you find something is off.
