    INSTALLING

    Using Git:

    cd headlight
    npm install

    Using NPM:

    npm install headlight -g

    App Start

    headlight start 

    App Stop

    headlight stop

    App Status

    headlight status

    The easiest way to start an appliction would be to change to the directory where your nodejs application resides and type the following:

    headlight start

    Then to stop your script while within the same directory type in:

    headlight stop

    You can also run scripts from other directories like this:

    headlight start /path/to/my/app

    Or like this:

    headlight start /path/to/my/app myscript.js

    Note: If you do not specify a third argument headlight will attempt to read the package.json file within the directory and load the main script.

    MODULE

    Headlight can be included as a nodejs module. The examples folder on the github repo will show you how to programmatically use headlight in your own modules or scripts.

    CONTRIB

    Headlight is not designed to replace existing application runners instead you can use it with existing ones or stand-alone. We encourage forking.
