Episode 3 - Koajs QuickStart Guide

Author: James Moore

In the last Episode I talked about JavaScript generators, and how they can make your developer life a little more pleasant.

This week I am giving you a quickstart tutorial on using Koajs the first web framework built from the ground up using generators.

Koajs was built by the developers that created express.js, so they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to koajs.

I believe we are at the beginning of a huge adoption of koajs in the node community, so if you are just learning node.js, starting a new side project or beginning a greenfield project at work you should seriously consider koajs. It provides a totally refreshing approach to building web applications in node.js.

In this episode I will show you how to install nodejs and create a basic Koajs app as well as create custom middleware.
