The simplest possible "hello world" node.js module written in C++

Build Status

This is a super simple module written as a C++ binding. It does not show how to handle async io, but at least it illustrates how the code hooks into node and v8. This is just a place to start...

Download, build and test instructions:

# Install node-gyp globally if not installed yet
npm install -g node-gyp

# Clone, build and test
git clone git://
cd node-cpphello
node-gyp configure build
npm test
