Why rostrum

There are many folder structures for Nodejs projects, however, I liked and appreciated the advice from this article and thought I would automate the process of creating new nodejs projects from this folder structure.


  1. nodejs must be installed on your laptop\computer.


From the terminal (Ctrl + T to invoke on Linux) run the following

npm install -g rostrum or

npm i -g rostrum


  1. Execute command express --view=ejsto create express application.
  2. Create unit tests
