create-monots

The easiest way to get started with monots.

The easiest way to get started with monots is by using create-monots. This CLI tool enables you to quickly start building a new monots project, with everything set up for you. You can create a new project using the default template, or by using one of the official boilerplate. To get started, use the following command:

# npm
npm create monots

# yarn
yarn create monots

# yarn
pnpm create monots

To create a new project with a specific name, you can send a name as an argument. For example, the following command will create a new project awesome in a folder with the same name:

npm create monots sideproject

Currently create-monots requires either a global installation of pnpm or corepack to be installed and enabled.

If you are using a version of node lower than 16.9 then you will need to install it manually.

npm i -g corepack

And then enable corepack.

corepack enable

Options

create-monots comes with the following options:

  • -e, --example [name]|[github-url] - An example to bootstrap the app with. You can use an example name from the monots examples repo or a GitHub URL. The URL can use any branch and/or subdirectory.
  • --example-path <path-to-example> - In a rare case, your GitHub URL might contain a branch name with a slash (e.g. bug/fix-1) and the path to the example (e.g. foo/bar). In this case, you must specify the path to the example separately: --example-path foo/bar

Why use create-monots?

  • Zero Dependencies: Initializing a project is as quick as one second. create-monots has zero dependencies.
  • Offline Support: create-monots will automatically detect if you're offline and bootstrap your project using your local package cache.
  • Support for Examples: create-monots can bootstrap your application using an example from the monots examples collection (e.g. npx create-monots --example api-routes).
  • Tested: The package is part of the monots monorepo and tested using the same integration test suite as monots itself, ensuring it works as expected with every release.
