    Node.js and Websockets are the perfect combination to write very fast, lag free applications which can send data to a huge number of clients. So why don't we start learning about these two topics by building a chat service! We will see how to install Node.js packages, serve a static page to the client with a basic web-server, and configure Socket.io to communicate with the client.Read More…

    In this article we'll be building a complete website with a front-facing client side, as well as a control panel for managing the site's content. As you may guess, the final working version of the application contains a lot of different files. I wrote this tutorial step by step, following the development process, but I didn't include every single file, as that would make this a very long and boring read. However, the source code is available on GitHub and I strongly recommend that you take a look.Read More…

    Going Live With NodeGoing live with node retina preview

    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…
