npm install
node start
curl localhost:3000

# -> Hello World!

Thanks for sharing.

No need to use Babel for that code, if you have Node > 4

import express from 'express';

const app = express();
const port = 3000;

app.get('/', (req, res) => res.send('Hello World!'));
app.listen(port, () => console.log(`Example app listening on port ${port}!`));
