posted in: AngularJS, NodeJS, Testing | 0

Getting started with CleverStack



cleverstack-cli depends on NPM, GruntJS and Bower.

$npm install bower -g

$npm install grunt-cli -g

*Note: In windows, these commands are best executed in a cygwin terminal interface such as git bash

1. Install NodeJS

2. Do a global install of clever-stack:

$ npm install cleverstack-cli -g

3. Create a new project:

$ clever init YOURAPPNAME

Making the register/login work:

$ clever install clever-auth

Follow the cli prompts and set database information etc. (We used MySQL DB and REDIS)

The installation will automatically install clever-orm module as well

If the installation fails in some try running the install command again

Once the installation completed you should be able to register a user, view the user list, logout and login.

Adding a new Module

1. (for initial setup create a directives and services module as well)


2. In new module’s module.js, change the route to the module name:


3. Add this new module to the main.js in your module’s folder root:



4. Add your new module to modules/application (Inject this module into the following files)

4.1 config.js

4.2 main.js

4.3 modules.js

Repeat steps 1-4 for each new module.
