REUSE Hello (Simple)

reuse compliant standard-readme compliant

This repository is a part of the REUSE project and shows an example repository which is compliant to the REUSE best practices for making copyrights and licenses computer readable. It can be used as inspiration and for reference, to see what a repository following the practices would look like.


To install Hello World, simply copy the file src/server.js to a convenient location, or (even better!) keep it in the repository.


To run the server, listening on the default port (8082), simply run it from the src/ directory as such:

$ cd src
$ node server.js

Visit http://localhost:8082/ to receive your Hello World greeting, after starting the server.
