What would you like to do?
// Require the http core module
var http = require('http');
// Create a server and provide a function (callback) that
// gets called for every request
http.createServer(function (req, res) {
// Speccify a content type
res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
// Write into the response object sent to the client
res.write('Hello World!');
// End the request
}).listen(4242); // Tell the HTTP server on which port it should listen
