Here I’ll take a step back from previous posts and cover the HTTP API of Node.js in a focused way.
In prior posts I had you creating web apps/servers via very simple logic. Framework software provides infrastructure support that allows you to create all of that a lot more quickly. Here I’ll take a look at using Express with Node.js.
Here I’ll continue the Node.js learning process by starting to construct a very simple server that will serve up static resources, like HTML pages.
My goal here is to introduce others to Node.js by basically detailing how I have learned it. In this initial post, I’ll jump right into creating a simple app-as-a-server and use that as a springboard for learning other aspects of Node.js.
