    Installation and Usage

    First make sure you have a working copy of Node.js and npm (the node package manager).

    To install escrito you'll need coffee.

    npm install -g coffee-script

    Check if everything went okay.

    coffee -v

    Next, run (this may take a while):

    npm install -g escrito

    Then start the server.


    That should be enough!

    You can pass custom arguments:

    escrito --port 4567

    Documents are not persistent by default but you can set a custom database type.

    The available options are 'memory' and 'redis'. Those are the database types supported by the ShareJS project.

    escrito --database redis

    For more detailed help type:

    escrito -h

    Local installation

    You can also install escrito locally. This will install it in your current directory.

    npm install escrito

    Start the server:

    npm start escrito

    To pass custom arguments using npm, you have to use a slightly different syntax.

    For example, to set up the server with a custom port you should do the following:

    npm config set escrito:port 5000

    From source

    You can clone the github repository.

    git clone git://

    Install all the dependencies.

    cd escrito
    npm install

    Run the server:


    Again, you can pass custom arguments.

    coffee --port 4567 --database redis

    Compiling CoffeeScripts

    If you want to compile the CoffeeScripts to JavaScript.

    cake build-dependencies
    cake build

    Run the server:

    node web.js

    This wouldn't be possible without Open Source projects like

    Check them all in the humans.txt file.




    npm i escrito
