    Using Node's Event ModuleNode event module retina preview
    36 shares
    When I first heard about Node.js, I thought it was just a JavaScript implementation for the server. But it's actually much more: it comes with a host of built-in functions that you don't get in the browser. One of those bit of functionality is the Event Module, which has the EventEmitter class. We'll be looking at that in this tutorial.Read More…

    In my previous article I talked about my joy of discovering the Express framework. Express is what makes me feel like I could really build something with Node and have fun doing it. And in fact - I did that! I built some sample web apps and had a lot of fun. But eventually I decided it was time to buckle down and get serious. I liked Node, I loved Express, and if I was really going to commit to learning it, then why not take the final step and actually create a real website using it. Another thing I learned early on during my Node education (Nodacation?) was that having to stop and restart a Node app was a real pain in the rear. I had great success using Nodemon by Remy Sharp. It will notice updates to your code and restart your Node app automatically. This sounds trivial I suppose, but for me my entire experience with Node was at the command line. I'd simply run node app and test away on port 3000. I really didn't know what it involved to get that same application up and running on a real server and responding to a domain. In this article I'll describe two different attempts I made to move a Node app into production. Obviously there's more ways (and look for more articles here at Nettuts+!) so keep in mind this is what I tried and had success with. Read More…
