This is a community supported blog about how to program in nodejs.

This is powered by a new static blog engine written in node called wheat.

To run a local version of the blog, simply install wheat and it's dependencies, node.JS v0.1.101 or later.

If you have spark installed, just type spark in this directory. If not, append .listen(3000) right before the closing semicolon and run it with node app.js

You can get a working wheat environment out of the box with ivy.
