Build Status

Nodejs Express Mongoose Demo

This is a demo node.js application illustrating various features used in everyday web development, with a fine touch of best practices. The demo app is a blog application where users (signing up using facebook, twitter, github and simple registrations) can create an article, delete an article and add comments on the article.

Read the wiki (or the old blog post) for the application architecture.

Install

NOTE: You need to have node.js, mongodb and imagemagick installed and running.

  $ npm install
  $ cp config/config.example.js config/config.js
  $ cp config/imager.example.js config/imager.js
  $ npm start

NOTE: Do not forget to update your facebook twitter and github APP_ID and APP_SECRET in config/config.js. Also if you want to use image uploads, don't forget to replace the S3 and Rackspace keys in config/imager.js.

Then visit http://localhost:3000/
