i get this after

$ ./bin/initproject.sh 

since today

fatal: http://github.com/LearnBoost/Socket.IO.git/info/refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?

then alot of errors where it tries to copy the html5 boilerplate and a ls in the lib folders shows me that's nothing in it.


fixed this one, pls pull


I don't see any commit to the boilerplate project around your comment. Is this fix available in the public repo? I have just cloned and run the init script with the same bug described above. Any help appreciated.


seems the maintainer doesn‘t maintain the repo any more. there are to unfinished pull requests from me and another one regarding the socket.io updates and dependencies.


*to = two.

sry i am on mobile


Any recommendations on how to get up and running? Should I use NPM instead of relying on the submodules?


You could try to merge in my pull request, run the .sh script then do:

$ npm install -d

to install dependencies like redis (either in the socket.io module dir or the root of the boilerplate).


I must be missing something. I did what you suggested: ran init script and then npm install -d but I am getting error when I run the npm command. How do I merge in your changes? Do you have a repo I can pull from?


to merge the pull request, as i deleted my fork:

$ curl https://github.com/robrighter/node-boilerplate/pull/12.patch | git am --signoff

$ git apply --reject --whitespace=fix .git/rebase-apply/patch

$ git add .

$ git am --resolved

after that run the initproject.sh, and try an

$ npm install -d 

in the socket.io dir
