A boilerplate project for NodeJS + ExpressJS on ECMAScript 6 with MongoDB

With the advent of JavaScript ECMAScript 6/ECMAScript 2016/ES6, a whole bunch of new features were introduced, most of them being game-changers for anyone who wanted to switch over. My colleague Ragavan and I took it on ourselves to convert one of our existing ES5 NodeJS projects to ES6, and I thought it would be good to put together a base project that anyone could use to bootstrap a typical NodeJS + ExpressJS + MongoDB + REST project using the tools that we used.

We have used the following tools to make this work:

The full code can be found on Github. A huge shout out to Ashantha Lahiru who worked really hard to make the code presentable and more generic, as well as the MongoDB integration.
