Initial Commit to start Supercharge

Marcus Pöhls @marcuspoehls

On 18th April 2018, I created the first git commit on the Supercharge Node.js framework. At this point, I didn’t know if anyone would ever care about the project.

Would anyone use it, except me?

Well, I was constantly thinking about a Rails-like Node.js framework giving you the developer joy you deserve. Supercharge was born. It should allow you to build resilient apps with a predefined application structure.

My idea: put files in a dedicated folder and the framework takes care of connecting all the dots. For example, if you want your HTTP server to run on port 2018, you can simply configure it in a configuration file for your application. Another example, place all your database models in the app/models directory and Supercharge loads them on app start.

Alright, we’re on good ground and things are aligning. I’ll definitely use it for my projects. Even if nobody else cares.

Please notice: I’m writing this milestone in the future, a year in the project.
