A simple development server to test ideas, like jsbin but with node powers.

It features an ecstatic server that publish the /public dir.

Browserify is watching the /application.js creating a bundle.js so you can use node modules in the frontend.

Everything have live reload so you can try different ideas faster.

To ease the export, the public folder is not served directly, instead it is first copied to the build directory.

How to use?

Check the sample folder to get an idea, but all you need is:

build/          ---> created automaticaly
public/         ---> your files copied as is
application.js  ---> entry point for browserify
server.js       ---> server code

The server code is really short:

var server = require('nodebin')
