Meaniscule is a miniscule MEAN stack app generator that focuses on providing the bare minimum framework to get you up and running quickly in a MEAN stack environment, with an AngularJS front-end, an Express/NodeJS server, and a MongoDB database using the Mongoose ORM.
The newest release of Meaniscule graduates to 1.0 and includes improved client-side architecture, fractal server-side architecture, and a new
nodb flag that you can use when generating your app.
nodb flag is for situations where you know in advance that you won’t be needing a database. Why bother creating it if you won’t use it, right?
nodb flag provides the benefits of:
– an even smaller file tree
– no unnecessary local database creation and connection
– no database setup required on the server should you decide to deploy
