How do I start with Node?

let’s build our first web server. Create a file named app.js containing the following contents:

Blockquote const http = require(‘http’);

const hostname = ‘’;
const port = 3000;

const server = http.createServer((req, res) => {
res.statusCode = 200;
res.setHeader(‘Content-Type’, ‘text/plain’);
res.end(‘Hello World’);

server.listen(port, hostname, () => {
console.log(Server running at http://${hostname}:${port}/);

Now, run your web server using node app.js. Visit http://localhost:3000 and you will see a message saying “Hello World”.

Refer to the Introduction to Node.js for a more comprehensive guide to getting started with Node.js.
