MEAN.JS Framework – Creating a Simple Blog App – Part 1, The Setup

Tutorial time!

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?”

Let’s begin!!!

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.
