Very Quick Launch

# npm start cendre

The default webfolder is located here :


Quick Launch

Open the configuration file :


Set the appropriate port. Create a file named "localhost" in '[..]/node_modules/cendre/conf/vhosts' and put the following lines in it :

exports.hostname = 'localhost'; = require('../base.nodejs')(); = '/var/www';

Then launch Cendre by typing this command :

$ npm start cendre


You can code your own dynamic pages. They have the .nodejs extension by default.

Here is the minimal code :

exports.mimetype = 'text/plain';
exports.encoding = 'utf-8'; = function(c, end)
	end('Hello world !');

It will return an UTF-8 encoded .txt file with "Hello world !" as content.
