So I started working on this Express boilerplate. It includes Jade, Stylus & Gulp support out of the box with BrowserSync magic. :) Handy if you want to build a full server side app in Node. https://github.com/niallobrien/express-boilerplate

So get this, director in Dublin said myself & Mark have to get a mountain of content in by Friday which means staying late if we have to. Do you know what it means? I’ve handed in my notice already you cunt, swing off my fuckin’ nut-sack! :)

@niallobrien I'd he's going to get a big bucket of fuck off before you leave. Dickhead. I hope you let him know what your overtime rate is!!

Yeah, he really spoke to Mark like shit which was bad.
I then tried to express my concern to Aaron, the director here and he was like “Shur we’ve known about this since September” And I was like “Yeah, I couldn’t done it back then but I was busy building the fuckin’ site. Take your pick!” What assholes. They don’t give a fuck about their employees.

@niallobrien suppose it might be better not to burn bridges, but still it's a bit late in the day

Yeah, for sure.
Anyways, how are you guys getting on?
@mjpwall Did you check out the Express Boilerplate I posted? Just ‘git clone’ ‘nom install && bower install’ and run ‘gulp watch'

I'll probably take a look at the boilerplate over the weekend. Looks like it will remove a lot of effort for me!
I see you went for the model, view and controller directories
Niall O'Brien
@niallobrien
Jan 08 2015 12:13
Yeah it will for sure.
Yeah, kept it simples
The controller passes an obj into the view too
So you’ll see in the Jade template it’s outputting the title
So yeah, I’ll get to grips with 100% server side before I chance building APIs with Node etc.

Jan 08 2015 12:15
Yeah, I saw that all right
What about testing?
Niall O'Brien
@niallobrien
Jan 08 2015 12:16
Ha
Yeah, that’ll come later :)
Cuz I’d have to cover testing both the server side js and the client-side js
Oh, in the boilerplate it’s using TJ’s example of ES6 js, which gets transpiled to ES5 so it’ll work in all browsers. But yeah, some nice new JS syntax in there /assets/scripts/
I think the latest version of node.js also supports ES6 syntax, can anyone confirm?

I recently seen a Node tutorial where he was using classes and constructors so I guess its in there, to some extent at least anyway
