Project structure

Main logical entities are Games, Teams, Rounds, and Users.


Backend is written in Node.js (Express) and it’s using MongoDB as a database. Index file is server.js in the root folder. Here all routes are applied. Routes could be found in the routes/api folder. They are divided into 4 logical entities. Every route has its Mongoose schema. All Mongoose models could be found in the models folder. Firebase is used for authentication.


Frontend is written on Vue.js (^2.6), Vuetify as a UI library, and Vuex as a state management library. For routing, we’re using Vue Router and Vue Test Utils (based on Jest) for unit tests. Frontend index point is main.js. Pages could be found in views folder, components are in components folder. For structuring components, we’re sticking to official Vue styleguide. Vuex store is the brain of the app. All API calls are going through VUEX. It’s also divided into main 4 entities. All manipulations with the store must go through actions, which will call respective mutations. More info about Vuex actions and mutations.
