Coding the Web - The Basics

In this course we will discuss the basics of the technologies that power the modern web. We will cover the basics of HTML and Typescript.

Lesson 5

NodeJS

In this lesson we will cover why NodeJS is useful and important.

localhost:3000Node allows you to run your typescript code (once compiled into javascript) outside of the browser. When you install NodeJS, it will come with NPM, a package manager to install other engineers' code.

NodeJS will let you run a local server so that you can access the web app you are building on your machine without having to update a server somewhere else. By doing so you can instantly see the changes you make.

Once you have Node installed you can run

npx create-next-app@latest --typescript

in your terminal, and then run

npm run dev

This will create a starter Next (React) app and start up a local development server to host it that you can access via your browser by navigating to

http://localhost:3000
