Our Open-Source Tools
We love to be efficient, but we hate repetitive work! That's why we build tools that help us do the repetitive work for us. It's also why we share them with the world so that others can also benefit. We strongly believe in sharing knowledge in the simplest possible way so other people are able to learn what we already know. Sharing in this way allows us to help people create fresh ideas that will benefit our community.
This is 0x4447's take on the express-generator CLI that's included with ExpressJS. We created this project because we'd always spend quite a bit of time on bringing the default ExpressJS template up to speed. This was especially true when there was a constant need to spin up new micro-services.
One of this project's nicest features is how simple it is for the user to customize it. If you have your own style, all you need to do is clone the repo and edit the source folder as you like.
We created the Grapes CLI tool after experiencing increasing frustration as we worked with a massive CloudFormation file. While what AWS CloudFormation do amazed us, working within one gigantic file became too labor intensive and prone to errors. At that point, we decided to create Grapes.
Grapes gave us the ability to break down the entire CloudFormation file structure into smaller chunks, which made it much easier to reason out issues and work with the file.
