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.
The Grapes CLI tool was created after we experienced increasing frustration as we worked with massive CloudFormation files. We're amazed by what AWS CloudFormation can do and the way it helps with managing the AWS infrastructure, but working with one gigantic file is too labor intensive and prone to countless errors and endless frustration.
We decided to do something about this. The end result is Grapes, a simple CLI tool that cuts the amount of time spent creating a stack in half. It makes the entire process more enjoyable, in addition to making it easy to organize and extend.
