About The Project

After publishing a series of blog postsopen in new window on creating a full-stack project with this same stack, I decided to publish a generic boilerplate for future use. This template has saved me hours of re-implementing the same logic for authentication, user management, Swagger documentation, and more.

This repository results from my experiments with different repository structures, best practices, and framework integrations. Part of the evolution of this repository included chunks of code copied from, or inspired by, other repositories.

This list continually evolves; more will be added as the repository evolves!
