Hi PH, Nice to be here! I’m Andrei, a 26 years old javascript dev and not that long time ago I lost a few days implementing a simple but large and time consuming app. That's why I started Scriptgun, an application that writes the code for basic and repetitive features to save developers' time. Just by describe how the data should look like and some settings you will get a fully functional Backend (node + express) with all the basic functionalities, a 100% configuration of the database (MongoDB) and more .. all in under 10 minutes. We plan to launch many features in the future ( Authentication, Swagger, frontend project, db query builder and many more ). Today I would like to share with you the MVP. I would appreciate very much any kind of feedback. Thanks!

@andrei_panturu Congratulations on your release! Seems like a great tool to bypass the boilerplate setup and get your app started fast. Did you make any guides or tutorials for basic sample apps? Would love a quickstart guide with a basic task app or something

@msny_36 Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately I didn't make any tutorials / onboarding process yet but this is a top priority in the future tasks.
@andrei_panturu Cool product! Are you planning on porting to other languages (Ruby, Python, Swift, Java, etc.)?

@srinitude in the near future, No. We will think about that after a full-stable version for javascript.
It'd be nice to have this as a desktop app, so you can "code" and test all the changes on the fly

@levchenkod Thanks for feedback! "test all the changes on the fly" is a very good point. I was thinking to solve this by pushing the code into a git repo instead of downloading a zip with the all code.
@andrei_panturu I think having things local has more perks: you have your project folder and git/grunt/webpack/npm/whatever setup in no time. But the main one (for those who have trust issues) - it's local. Also there's node-webkit, so you can convert it in to desktop app in a day or so 🙂

I think scriptgun is a product any developer could use to gain more time on his hands for his projects.

Pros:

does the job for you in less time.

Cons:

there aren't any I stumbled upon.

Using Scriptgun I managed to get the most complete, custom and useful starter for my back-end in less than a few minutes. Hell, you can use it for V2 as well.

Pros:

insanely fast

Cons:

none so far
