Install express for node.js on Windows 7

Getting express working on Windows 7 did not work exactly as shown in the vast majority of tutorials/blogs that I found.

While simple, it requires an additional step or two.

Before we start, the following are the current versions of node and npm that I’m using on Windows 7:

node.exe -v
v0.6.10

npm -v
1.1.0-3

Open PowerShell, then type:

npm install express

Unfortunately, this installs express in:

C:\Users\Akbar\node_modules

If you try to start the node.js server with require(‘express’), node will be unable to find express.

To correct for this issue, do the following:

Open Windows Explorer to (replace Akbar with your user name): C:\Users\Akbar

Copy the node_modules folder.

Open the folder that contains your node app, such as: C:\my_node_app

Paste the node_modules folder.

That’s it. run the node server and everything should work fine.

node.exe .\app.js

Install Tornado on Windows 7

Please see my prior post on how to Setup virtualenv on Windows.

Open PowerShell, then enter the following commands:

cd C:\Python27

.\env_tornado\Scripts\activate.bat

.\Scripts\easy_install.exe pip

pip.exe install tornado -E .\env_tornado

 

If you want to install in the global site packages, then skip pip above and use:

.\Scripts\easy_install.exe tornado

That’s it. Time to start writing code.

Setup virtualenv on Windows

I’m going to assume you have Python 2.7 correctly installed on Windows at C:\Python27. These instructions are applicable to Windows XP and Windows 7.

 

Open Windows PowerShell, then enter:

cd C:\Python27

.\Scripts\virtualenv.exe –no-site-packages env_tornado

And now to activate the new environment:

.\env_tornado\Scripts\activate.bat

The new virtual environment is now setup and ready for use
