// Environment
var port= 59798;
 
// Dependencies
var express= require('express');
var turnout= require('express-turnout');
 
// Setup express
var app= express();
app.use(turnout());
app.use(function(req, res) {

Example:

angular.module('myApp',['ui.router'])
.run(function($rootScope,$window){
  $rootScope.$on('$viewContentLoaded',function(){
    var renderedTemplate= document.body.innerHTML.trim().length>0
    if(renderedTemplate){
      $window.expressTurnoutRendered();

  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>Welcome googlebot!</title>
  <base href="/">
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/angular.js/1.3.15/angular.js"></script>
  <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/angular-ui-router/0.2.14/angular-ui-router.js"></script>
 
  <script src="/express-turnout.js"></script>
  <script>
  //...
  </script>
</head>
