Node.js/Express Convention-Based Routes 2

I’ve always been a fan of convention-based routing so I converted a local route generation script I’ve been using with Node.js/Express applications into an npm package called express-convention-routes.

I also wanted to make sure that the application was approachable by people new to Angular since I’ve never found overly complex applications great for learning new concepts. The application initially started out small and was used in my AngularJS in 60-ish Minutes video on YouTube but […]
