  • Hardwire - app container
  • Wiretree - dependency injection container
  • Passport - Multiservice auth
  • Jade - Template engine

Node.js and MongoDB

Quick start


Initialize a npm proyect and install JetKit as dependency (it requires a package.json):

mkdir myapp && cd myapp
npm init
npm install --save jetkit


JetKit postinstall script add 2 scripts to your package.json: jk-boilerplate and jk-initdb, run the first one in order to generate your app structure folder (/app) and a launcher (app.js)

npm run jk-boilerplate


You must configure your database connection before run your app. Open /app/config/default.json and add your credentials into mondgodb section.

Then create a user in DB:

npm run jk-initdb

Start app

Run your app:

npm start

App structure

JetKit is structured in blocks, and block are composed by public files, views and/or plugins.


Blocks folder structure:

  • config
  • controllers
  • lib
  • models
  • public
  • routes
  • services
  • utilities
  • views


See Wiretree


Configuration is exposed in tree as config. Their files are stored in /config.

See deep.json

Public files

Public files are stored in /public folder in blocks, and by default available through HTTP under /_public URLs. JetKit creates also 3 folders in public folder: js, css and img


Views are not exposed in tree. Their files are stored in /views. Views are jade templates


Routes are not exposed in tree and their files are stored in /routes


Controller files are stored in /controllers.

Exposed in group control with its file name as keyname, and under tree root with suffix Ctrl


JetKit uses Mongoose models stored in /models folder.

Exposed in group models with its file name as keyname, and under tree root with suffix Model.

3 types of models:


Collections are pure Mongoose models with its entirely API, and their files are stored in /models/collections

Subcollections (not implemented yet)

Subcollections are collections stored into a single document into _keyval collection.

Subcollection document schemas are stored in /models/subcollections folder


Singles are models that contain a single document and their files are stored in /models/singles.

Simplified API: read and update


Libraries are not exposed in tree.

Their files are stored in /lib


Service plugins are stored in /services.

Exposed in group services with its file name as keyname, and under tree root with suffix Srv.
