NodeJs beginer

Node.js makes it possible to write applications in JavaScript on the server. It’s built on the V8 JavaScript runtime and written in C++ — so it’s fast. Originally, it was intended as a server environment for applications, but developers started using it to create tools to aid them in local task automation. Since then, a whole new ecosystem of Node-based tools (such as Grunt and Gulp) has evolved to transform the face of front-end development.

To make use of these tools (or packages) in Node.js we need to be able to install and manage them in a useful way. This is where npm, the node package manager, comes in. It installs the packages you want to use and provides a useful interface to work with them. But before we can start using npm, we first have to install Node.js on our system.

1. Install NodeJs from website
2. npm install: run this command from cmd (shift + right click on a specific folder) to download all depending packages that lists in project.json file
