A Vue based web server with an integrated API system

Quick Installation

To install Core Server and start a new project, run the following commands:

npm install -g core-server
core-server --init

Core Server

Core Server helps teams set a standard project structure and workings for all sort of Node projects.

We developed Core Server to provide a standard and global project structure for our web platforms developed in-house. We were loosing to much time figuring out a project structure for each seperate project. We open sourced as it may help other developers facing the same problems.

Technology stack:
Core Server is based on Node's v10 architecture and has a tight integration with VueJS.

Currently used by multiple launched projects!
This open-source version is currently not yet production ready.
We recently added a CLI and modular plugin system before open sourcing, which still needs testing.
We started versioning since open sourcing the project. CHANGELOG.
