First, we need to install the Blueprint command-line interface (cli). The cli makes it easier to start a new Blueprint application, and implement different components of the application. When installing the cli, you want to install it globally.
Now, use the installed blueprint cli to generate a new application.
blueprint new super-rentals
The cli will generate a new Blueprint application in the
super-rentals directory. It will also install the node modules for the application.
Let's make sure the
super-rentals application generated correctly. Change to the newly generated directory, and run the application as follows:
This will start the Blueprint application in development mode, and make it available at http://localhost:5000.
If you want to run the Blueprint application in a different environment mode, then use the
NODE_ENV environment variable. For example, if you want to run the application in a
production environment, then use the following command:
NODE_ENV=production node ./app
