The best project generator for NodeJS Express projects

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform, back-end JavaScript runtime environment that executes code outside a web browser. As an asynchronous event-driven platform, Node is designed to build scalable network applications.

Express is a minimal and flexible Node.js web application framework that provides a robust set of features for web and mobile applications.

Together, they are one of the most popular platforms for modern web applications and backend APIs, allowing developers to use the same language on the frontend and on the backend to write scalable and performant applications.

API Bakery provides much of the boilerplate you'll need for every Express project. You get project structure, routes, database integration, logging and testing, so you can start your next Node/Express project even faster.
