Node Boilerplate

node-boilerplate takes html-boilerplate, express, connect and Socket.IO and organizes them into a ready to use website project. Its a fast way to get working on your Node website without having to worry about the setup.

To start a project:

    git clone git:// mynewproject
    cd mynewproject
    sh ./bin/

This will copy down all of the boilerplate files organize them appropriately and init a fresh new git repository within which you can build your next big thing.

To run the boilerplate template app:

    node ./project/app.js

Go to and click on the send message link to see in action.

You can git clone any other modules into the lib folder. Any modules cloned into the git folder can be required as global modules ie.. require('somemodule').
