thats what I try to do:

router.get('/:id', function (id) {
var me = this;
if ( id !== 'favicon.ico') {
if (!window) {
jsdom.env("http://localhost:8080/", [
function(errors, win) {
window = win;
win: window,
logger: winston,
server: true
Framlin.stylePage();, id);
} else {, id);
} else {
//handle favicon


please fix this :/


I get the same error on my localhost.
I get this problem with jsdom 0.2.11 0.2.12 and 0.2.13 With version 0.2.14 I get #436
I guess that both issues is because I don't have contextify (do you have it on your production env?)

jsdom claims contextify to be optionalDependency, but it seems that it is not optional


I have reinstalled the whole thing from scratch and now it is runing
