    Get started with Node.js and Express
    Node.js is a server-side platform built on Google Chrome's JavaScript V8 engine. It allows you to build fast and scalable network applications that are written in JavaScript and can be run on OS X, Linux, and Microsoft Windows. Before Node.js was released in 2009, applications on the web had their server-side code written in languages like PHP, Perl, Python, Java, and others, but it is now possible to use JavaScript on the front-end and back-end entirely, meaning that you can run JavaScript code outside of the browser now. Some notable companies, like Netflix, PayPal, GoDaddy, and IBM, currently use Node.js to power their software.

  • @hanmhs9, on windows or mac if you create a blank new file, you can simply call your file "user.ejs" and it will save the file with that extension. You don't need any special program to create a file with that extension.

  • @mrdaniel yeah so how do you 'create a blank new file'? Is that supposed to be the right click->new->text document and name it "user.ejs"? I can't find anything called 'File' in the 'new' category except text documents, folder, word doc, excel, etc but no 'FILE'.
