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://github.com/robrighter/node-boilerplate.git mynewproject cd mynewproject sh ./bin/initproject.sh
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:
Go to http://0.0.0.0:8081 and click on the send message link to see socket.io in action.
To add additional modules:
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').
