Quick Start

Create index.html:

<html>
<head>
<title>Hello World!</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>
We are using node.js <script>document.write(process.version)</script>
</body>
</html>

Create package.json:

{
  "name": "nw-demo",
  "main": "index.html"
}

Compress index.html and package.json into a zip archive, and rename it to app.nw:

app.nw
|-- package.json
`-- index.html

Download the prebuilt binary for your platform and use it to open the app.nw file:

$ ./nw app.nw

Note: on Windows, you can drag the app.nw to nw.exe to open it.
