  1. Hello!

This is a drawing web application written by Ben Corne. It is written in HTML and Javascript. Technologies used are node.js, express, jade, HTML5 and now.js. An example running application can be found at http://draw.bennit.be.

  1. Installation

To use this application, you need node v0.6.16+. You can install and use different versions of node using nvm (https://github.com/creationix/nvm/).

After node is installed, go to the main directory and type npm install. In case the now dependency is not installed automatically, try installing it explicitly: npm install now

Now in the main directory type node app.js

and visit your drawing application on http://localhost:8080

  1. Code

The application is implemented as a variation on the MVC-pattern.
