Installation

Quick Start

lcm, the command line interface to Locomotive, can be used to generate a starter application. To use it, install Locomotive globally.

$ npm install locomotive -g

Next, create an application and install dependencies.

$ lcm create hello
$ cd hello
$ npm install

Start the server.

$ lcm server

The application is available at localhost:3000.

Start the server with node debug mode

$ lcm server --debug (node --debug mode)
$ lcm server --debug-brk (node --debug-brk mode)

Then you can use debug tools like node-inspector to debug your application as usual.
