node.js

AN EXAMPLE: WEBSERVER

This simple web server written in Node responds with "Hello World" for every request.
var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
  res.end('Hello World\n');
}).listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');
console.log('Server running at http://127.0.0.1:1337/');
To run the server, put the code into a file example.js and execute it with the node program from the command line:
% node example.js
Server running at http://127.0.0.1:1337/
Here is an example of a simple TCP server which listens on port 1337 and echoes whatever you send it:
var net = require('net');

var server = net.createServer(function (socket) {
  socket.write('Echo server\r\n');
  socket.pipe(socket);
});

server.listen(1337, '127.0.0.1');
