hostsamurai / app.js
Created Jun 9, 2013
This solves two gotchas I came across when deploying a node site running express through systemd: 1) Remove the callback in `listen` or the requests will hang, and 2) tell systemd what the working directory for your app is.
View app.js
var express = require('express')
, http = require('http')
, path = require('path');
var app = express();
// configuration and routes go here...
