A simple Battlesnake AI written in Javascript for NodeJS.

To get started you'll need a working NodeJS development environment, and at least read the Heroku docs on deploying a NodeJS app.

If you haven't setup a NodeJS development environment before, read how to get started with NodeJS. You'll also need npm for easy JS dependency management.

This client uses Express4 for easy route management, read up on the docs to learn more about reading incoming JSON params, writing responses, etc.
