npm install (you may need to prefix this with sudo if you're on Mac)

Run the app:

node server.js

Then navigate to http://localhost:3000

If you want tests to execute every time you change a file:

jasmine-node ./spec/describe_Game_spec.js --autotest --watch ./game.js

To run the E2E tests you first must install protractor. see:

npm install -g nodemon

Then run the following instead of node server.js:

nodemon server.js

Signing up, and deploying to Nodejitsu


The documenation was available on the front page (right under the sign up for free button):

Install the Nodejitsu Package

npm install jitsu -g (you may need to prefix this with sudo if you're on Mac)

Register via the command line:

jitsu signup (yes you can sign up via the command line)

You'll get a confirmation email with a command to type in:

jitsu users confirm [username] [confirmation-guid]

If you've already registered, you can login with:

jitsu login

After you confirm your email, you can login (the confirm command should prompt you to log in).

Change the subdomain value in package.json, to reflect the url you want to deploy to:

  "name": "nodejs-against-humanity",
  "subdomain": "nah-amir-rajan" <--- this value

now deploy:

jitsu deploy

And your app should be up on Nodejitsu.
