Install NodeJS with NVM


Today I started my first steps into the world of server-side javascript with nodejs. First thing was installing NVM, the node version manager. You can do that with this simple steps:

git clone git://github.com/creationix/nvm.git ~/.nvm
. ~/.nvm/nvm.sh

After that you can go ahead and install nodejs:

nvm install v0.7.1

Now you need to download an IDE, a compiler, an enterprise service bus… oh no, wait. Just open your texteditor, paste the following text:

var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  res.end('Hello World\n');
}).listen(1337, "127.0.0.1");
console.log('Server running at http://127.0.0.1:1337/');

save it as simpleserver.js and then run it with

node simpleserver.js

Now you can point your browser to http://127.0.0.1:1337/ and you’ll see the response of your first application with nodejs.
