Hello world app packaged with node-pre-gyp

node-addon-example

Sample application of a Node C++ addon packaged with node-pre-gyp.

If you are interested in learning how to write C++ addons see the official guide.

This repo is meant to be copied from as start code for your own C++ module. And the docs below are meant to be a template for how you might document your module once packaged with node-pre-gyp.

  • Node.js 0.10.x or 0.8.x

Install from binary:

npm install

Install from source:

npm install --build-from-source

The node-pre-gyp tool is used to handle building from source and packaging.

To recompile only the C++ files that have changed, first put node-gyp and node-pre-gyp on your PATH:

export PATH=`npm explore npm -g -- pwd`/bin/node-gyp-bin:./node_modules/.bin:${PATH}

Then simply run:

node-pre-gyp build
node-pre-gyp build package
npm install aws-sdk
node-pre-gyp publish
