This first post will be very short because Microsoft has already done a good job of writing it 🙂 The first step in learning any new tool/framework/language is simply saying “hello” or more specifically, “hello world.” Microsoft has provided an excellent tutorial for getting up and running with Node.
npm install -g express-generatorexpress ExpressAppcd ExpressAppnpm install
You are then free to write in a hello world message…
you can then fire up the debugger and point a browser to http://localhost:3000 to see the hello world
From here I added in boot strap into the views and put together a nice starting point to branch out into future learnings. You can see what I have done on my GitHub.
