Tech Stack


Getting Started

Generate a new project from this template, clone it, install project dependencies, update the environment variables found in env/*.env, and start hacking:

$ git clone example
$ cd ./example
$ yarn install
$ yarn start

The app will become available at http://localhost:5173/ (press q key to exit).

IMPORTANT: Ensure that VSCode is using the workspace version of TypeScript and ESLint.


  • yarn start — Launches the app in development mode on http://localhost:5173/
  • yarn build — Compiles and bundles the app for deployment
  • yarn lint — Validate the code using ESLint
  • yarn tsc — Validate the code using TypeScript compiler
  • yarn test — Run unit tests with Vitest, Supertest
  • yarn edge deploy — Deploys the app to Cloudflare

How to Deploy

Ensure that all the environment variables for the target deployment environment (test, prod) found in /env/*.env files are up-to-date.

If you haven't done it already, push any secret values you may need to CF Workers environment by running yarn workspace edge wrangler secret put <NAME> [--env #0].

Finally build and deploy the app by running:

$ yarn build
$ yarn deploy [--env #0] [--version #0]

Where --env argument is the target deployment area, e.g. yarn deploy --env=prod.

How to Update

  • yarn set version latest — Bump Yarn to the latest version
  • yarn upgrade-interactive — Update Node.js modules (dependencies)
  • yarn dlx @yarnpkg/sdks vscode — Update TypeScript, ESLint, and Prettier settings in VSCode
