A set of common dependencies needed to get started with a nodejs-server.

This project encourages a modularized/co-located file structure so it's easier to split a service up in smaller chunks in the future.

It has the following set of highly opinionated drivers:

  • db: A database driver for postgresql.
  • httpReq: Make HTTP requests to other servers.
  • jwt: Just a re-export of jsonwebtoken.
  • logger: Logging based on Winston.
  • pubSub: Google Cloud Platform's Pub-Sub message broker for sending events between services.
  • report: Generate PDF reports. This is optional, and not included in the standard serverDeps set. Import it directly instead.
  • server: Wraps Express with some defaults, and exposes initRoutes that mounts routes, extracts variables, and calls model methods with those variables.
  • uuid: Generates v4 uuids.


Run yarn add @karmalicious/nodejs-drivers.


Copy the .env.example and fill out the values. GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS need to be set according to https://cloud.google.com/docs/authentication/production in the section "Creating a service account". Alternatively, go to https://console.cloud.google.com/apis/credentials/serviceaccountkey and download the JSON in to the root of the project and set GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=./gcp-service-account.json in the .env file.


Run yarn test. Run yarn test -- --watch for watch mode.


  • Run yarn publish and set a new semver number.
  • Run git push && git push --tags.
