Installing Joodle for use within Node.js is really easy and takes no time at all!
# Create a Node.js Project
Start by creating a new Node.js project (if you haven't already).
npm init -y
You should find a newly generated
package.json file inside your directory.
# Install as a Dependency
Now you can install Joodle from NPM as a dependency inside your
npm i joodle
You should find that your
package.json file has updated to include
joodle under the
dependencies section. A
package-lock.json file and a
node_modules directory should have also been generated. The
node_modules directory is where Joodle's source code is downloaded to.
You should commit both the
package-lock.json files to version control, but not the
node_modules directory. You can do this by creating a
.gitignore file in your project's directory and adding
node_modules/ as the first line.
Your project's directory should now look something like this:
my-joodle-app |- node_modules |- .gitignore |- package.json |- package-lock.json
