— NestJS — 1 min read
In this post, I'm going to introduce you to NestJS, a progressive Node.js framework for building efficient, reliable, and scalable server-side applications. It is deeply inspired by Angular and written on TypeScript. So if you're familiar with Angular, it's gonna be pretty easy for you to pick up. Behind the scenes, NestJS actually uses Express or Fastify, depending on your configuration. It provides an abstraction above these frameworks.
You can install NestJS CLI using:
$ npm i -g @nestjs/cli
Then, create a new NestJS project with:
$ nest new <project_name>
Go to the project directory and run your project with:
$ npm start// or$ npm run start// or$ npm run start:dev
Open your web browser, point to http://localhost:3000/ and voila!
Congratulations! You just created an app using NestJS!
