The major benefit of using a framework like DoneJS is it allows you to focus on development rather than boilerplate.
Another tool that provides a similar benefit is Nanobox. It creates instant, isolated, development environments, so you don’t have to worry about things like language versions, version managers, global dependency conflicts, etc. So download Nanobox and lets get started!
Step 1: The boxfile.yml
Nanobox uses a
boxfile.yml to configure your environment; create one at the root of your project:
Step 2: Create a DoneJS app
Just before creating the app add a convenient way to access it from the browser with
nanobox dns add local done.dev.
nanobox run to create your applications environment and drop into a console:
Install DoneJS by running
yarn add donejs.
With DoneJS installed change to the
/tmp directory and create your application. Once the app has been created move its contents into your project folder and change directories back there.
# cd into /tmp and create the application
donejs add app myapp
# copy the contents of your new donejs app to your project root
cp -ar ./myapp/. /app
# return to your project root
Step 3: Run your application
npm start to start your app:
With your app running you can visit it in a browser using the custom domain you added earlier: done.dev:8080.
