This tutorial assumes you already have some prior experience (not tons) with Mongo, Express, Angular and Node, and that you’re interested in knowing how to quickly bootstrap a CRUD app using the MEAN.JS framework.
Also it may help to know that I come from a Ruby on Rails background, so my approach to building this app was “I know how to do this in Rails, how do I do it in MEAN.JS?”
First you’ll need to install the prerequisites
=>install bower(frontend assets) $ sudo npm install -g bower =>grunt is used as the task runner $ sudo npm install -g grunt-cli =>install yeoman to generate scaffolding $ sudo npm install -g yo =>install the MEAN.JS generator $ sudo npm install -g generator-meanjs =>make the directory $ mkdir blog && cd blog
In Part 2 we’ll generate a CRUD model.
