Prime-NestJS: Your Next-Level NestJS Boilerplate

A boilerplate for NestJS that helps you to build your next-level NestJS application.

Are you ready to embark on your next Node.js project? Look no further! I am thrilled to introduce you to Prime-NestJS, an open-source NestJS boilerplate that will take your development experience to new heights. As the developer behind this project, I've poured my heart and soul into creating a powerful toolset that will supercharge your server-side application development.

Why Choose Prime-NestJS?

Prime-NestJS is not just another boilerplate—it's the result of my passion for building efficient and scalable applications. Here's why Prime-NestJS deserves your attention:

1. NestJS: Unleash the Power As a developer, I understand the importance of choosing the right framework. That's why I built Prime-NestJS using the latest version of NestJS. With its modular architecture, dependency injection, and TypeScript support, NestJS provides a solid foundation for creating robust and maintainable applications.

2. Streamlined Configuration Say goodbye to configuration headaches! Prime-NestJS leverages the power of Dotenv, enabling you to manage environment variables effortlessly. You'll appreciate having a single configuration file that adapts to various deployment environments, making your life as a developer much simpler.

3. Security at the Core Security is a top priority in today's digital landscape. With Prime-NestJS, I've integrated JWT authentication, empowering you to secure your APIs effortlessly. Additionally, the boilerplate includes Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Claims-Based Access Control (CBAC), enabling fine-grained authorization to protect your valuable resources.

4. Seamless Database Interactions Working with databases shouldn't be a burden. Prime-NestJS integrates TypeORM, a powerful Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) library. You can leverage the flexibility of TypeORM alongside the reliability and scalability of PostgreSQL, the default open-source relational database in Prime-NestJS.

5. Comprehensive API Documentation Save valuable development time and foster collaboration with built-in Swagger support. Prime-NestJS automatically generates API documentation, providing a comprehensive reference for your endpoints. Clear and up-to-date documentation ensures that your APIs are easily discoverable and consumable.

6. Effortless Container Orchestration Simplify deployment and ensure consistency across environments with Docker Compose. Prime-NestJS comes pre-configured with Docker Compose, allowing you to effortlessly containerize your application and manage its dependencies. Focus on building great features without worrying about deployment complexities.

7. Proactive Security Measures Prime-NestJS incorporates Helmet, a powerful package that sets secure HTTP headers by default. Your application will benefit from enhanced protection against common web vulnerabilities, empowering you to build more secure software from the start.

8. Code Quality Tools Maintaining code quality is essential for long-term success. That's why I've included pre-configured linting tools in Prime-NestJS. ESLint and Prettier enforce consistent code style and formatting, promoting clean and maintainable code. With Commitlint, you can ensure that your commit messages follow conventional standards, enhancing the readability of your codebase.

9. Enhanced Security with Code Scanning Security should never be an afterthought. Prime-NestJS takes your application's security to the next level with built-in code scanning using CodeQL. Identify and address potential vulnerabilities and security issues early in the development process, ensuring that your applications are secure by design.
