So, despite the fact that I know excessively little about how to work Node.JS,
especially when coming from a PHP background - I am beyond obsessed with the language.

it thrills me to no end that there is now a Node.JS executable for Windows.

Of course,
things kind of suck when you don't have the super simple power of NPM, but that's life for ya.

understand the basics of Node.JS (If you've ever touched JavaScript, its hard NOT to);
but some fine details such as templating elude me.  Maybe you're not supposed to template?  Maybe you're
just supposed to serve up some static HTML that then queries the Node.JS server for the information it
needs?  Oh.. now there's a thought.. program a single frontend that just talks back and forth with the
backend.  Kind of like Google+, actually.

Is that what I'm supposed to do?  God I love
this language.


  1. considering how much of the ecosystem is based around linux/mac, you'll probably still
    be better off firing up a VM and using Ubuntu or something.

  2. My poor four year old computer can't really handle that.

    I've got
    a machine though, so I have that to play with too.
