  • Press the “Use this template” on the top of this repository’s GitHub page.
  • Run pnpm install.
  • pnpm dev for development.
  • Use pnpm test to run tests.
  • pnpm build for production builds.

Note: You can install pnpm via homebrew on macOS: brew install pnpm.

Protips for the fastest Developer Experience

  • Use npm-run-all to parallelize local test runs.
  • Prettier and eslint have --cache flags. Use them!
  • Do not run prettier inside of eslint. It commonly takes 50% of the eslint runtime!
  • Automatically sort imports when running prettier/saving the document via @trivago/prettier-plugin-sort-imports.
  • Use swc with ts-node for fast node scripts with ESM. See below ↓

Run node scripts with ESM and TypeScript, fast.

Create a script.ts file, run chmod x script.ts and execute it via ./script.ts.

#!/usr/bin/env node --no-warnings --experimental-specifier-resolution=node --loader ts-node/esm

console.log('Your code goes here.');

And for restarting instantly when files change:

#!/usr/bin/env NODE_ENV=development node_modules/.bin/nodemon -q -I --exec node --no-warnings --experimental-specifier-resolution=node --loader ts-node/esm

console.log('This processes instantly restarts when a file changes.');
