Hackathon Starter

NOTE Hackathon-starter is primarily distributed using git clone of its repo at https://github.com/sahat/hackathon-starter. This npm package consists of a script that does that for you. Alternatively you can go to the hackathon-starter repo and follow the installation instructions there.

Hackathon Starter is a boilerplate for Node.js web applications.

If you have attended any hackathons in the past, then you know how much time it takes to get a project started: decide on what to build, pick a programming language, pick a web framework, pick a CSS framework. A while later, you might have an initial project up on GitHub and only then can other team members start contributing. Or how about doing something as simple as Sign in with Facebook authentication? You can spend hours on it if you are not familiar with how OAuth 2.0 works.


  • Local Authentication using Email and Password
  • OAuth 1.0a Authentication via Twitter
  • OAuth 2.0 Authentication via Facebook, Google, GitHub, LinkedIn, Instagram
  • Flash notifications
  • MVC Project Structure
  • Node.js clusters support
  • Sass stylesheets (auto-compiled via middleware)
  • Bootstrap 3 + Extra Themes
  • Contact Form (powered by Mailgun, Sendgrid or Mandrill)
  • Account Management
  • Gravatar
  • Profile Details
  • Change Password
  • Forgot Password
  • Reset Password
  • Link multiple OAuth strategies to one account
  • Delete Account
  • CSRF protection
  • API Examples: Facebook, Foursquare, Last.fm, Tumblr, Twitter, Stripe, LinkedIn and more.


Getting Started

The easiest way to get started is to clone the hackathon-starter repo :

# Get the latest snapshot
git clone https://github.com/sahat/hackathon-starter.git myproject

# Change directory
cd myproject

# Install NPM dependencies
npm install

# Then simply start your app
node app.js

Alternatively, this npm package can be installed globally, and consists of a script that does the cloning of the hackathon-starter project for you.

Install this npm package by installing it globally using:

npm install -g hackathon-starter

If you get a permission error during the installation, retry with sudo permission in bash. If you are using Windows CMD, retry using a CMD with Administrator privileges:

sudo npm install -g hackathon-starter

After the installation, you can just start a new hackathon project named myproject in the folder myproject by:

hackathon-starter myproject
