Node.js: Express tutorial
So far in the “Building web apps with Node.js” course we have installed the Node.js server on a variety of platforms, we were introduced to its unique functionality, we talked about Modules and Buffers (Node.js is a modular library) and we built a complete application from scratch.
In this lesson, we will use Express.js, a powerful web development framework for the Node.js (Node) platform. Express.js comes with the rest of the Node.js middleware modules and it can be used in order to develop any kind of web application, from simple to complex ones.
We will explore the various Express.js objects, the underlying concepts and we will also built a sample web application with NeDB as the backend.
