Node.js and Express on Windows

Tonight I decided I’d try to build a simple Node.js
application using Express on my Windows 7 machine. The installation went fairly smoothly, but Express refuses to cooperate. Here are the steps I’ve taken:

  1. Installed Node.js
    using the MSI available at http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.6.9/node-v0.6.9.msi
  2. Installed Express by running npm install express g
    from a command prompt.
  3. Created a directory for the application c:sourcenode> mkdir newapp
    .
  4. Changed directory to the application directory c:sourcenode> cd newapp
    .
  5. Ran Express: c:sourcenodenewapp> express --sessions --css stylus
    .

At this point the node.exe process fires up and runs endlessly at 25% CPU Time and continually uses more memory. After running for 20+ minutes the node.exe process uses 300+ MB of Memory. The express
command never completes and the newapp
directory remains unaltered.

If I run express --help
I see the help output in the console. I’ve tried running the command prompt as and Administrator but still Express appears to hang.

Does anyone have a clue what’s going on or what I’m doing wrong? Thanks in advance!

Solution

This is a bug in the Windows version of Node v0.6.9. Filesystem access is pretty much messed up. Rollback to v0.6.8 http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.6.8/node-v0.6.8.msi
and you should be fine.

The Express.js command line on Windows doesn’t quite work well either. I just tried with Node v0.6.8.

This works

express --sessions myapp

This doesn’t work for me

express --sessions --css stylus myapp

Fortunately you can add stylus support manually in your generated app. Open up app.js
and in the app.configure
function, add:

app.use(require('stylus').middleware({src: __dirname + '/public'}));

Hope this helps!

Update:

Oh ya, don’t forget your NPM commands. In your app directory, you may need to npm install jade
and npm install stylus
.
