Backend project - Node.js

Let's initialize npm project first:

        
            
              $ mdb blank init 
        
        
    

Specify project name and choose an npm and . You can also add other meta descriptions or accept default values.

project initalization

Open project in editor (ie. VS Code), create index.js and create your app. You can use sample code:

        
            
          const http = require("http");

          const port = 3000;
          
          const server = http.createServer((req, res) => {
            res.statusCode = 200;
            res.setHeader("Content-Type", "text/plain");
            res.end("Hello Node.JS World ");
          });
          
          server.listen(port, () => {
            console.log(`Server running at port: ${port}`);
          });

              $ mdb backend publish -p node12
