bootstrap allows you to create a new node.js app with a few things already setup to get you started. It takes a lot of inspiration from the express app executable.

You can use Javascript or Coffeescript by following the prompts.


$ npm install -g bootstrap
$ bootstrap yourappname
$ cd yourappname
$ npm install

$ coffee
