This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including
vapid-cli with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
vapid-cli lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:
This service is provided by RunKit and is not affiliated with npm, Inc or the package authors.
Vapid is an intentionally simple content management system built on the idea that you can create a custom dashboard without ever leaving the HTML.
Vapid requires node v8.9.0 or higher, and can be installed via npm
npm install -g vapid-cli
Note: A desktop GUI application is coming soon—please add yourself to the mailing list if you'd like to be notified when that is available.
To create a new website project, use the Vapid command line tool:
vapid new path/to/project/folder
Then change to the project directory, and start the development server. By default, the server will livereload, and refresh your website as you change the source files.
cd path/to/project/folder vapid start .
A few files and folders you should be aware of:
|www||Your website files. Anything you put in here is an accessible resource, with the exceptions of files that start with underscores or periods—those are private/special. Sass and JS files that have the |
|data||SQLite database file, and uploaded images. In general, you do not want to mess with this folder.|
|node_modules||This one should also be ignored.|
|package.json||Information about your project, including Vapid configuration options.|
|.env||A private file that contains server environment variables, like the SECRET_KEY used by the web server.|
Vapid can be deployed to any hosting service that supports Node.js. Here are a few to consider:
|Vapid||Zero-config service that can be accessed via the |
|Heroku||Free or paid tiers. One thing to note is that Heroku's file system is ephemeral, so Vapid's |
|Glitch||The easiest way to take Vapid for a test-drive.|
