Hi,

I have tried to work through chapter 4 and even with the hints posted here, I have not yet managed to get the server running. Since I am not the only one having issues with this particular chapter, I was wondering, if perhaps an updated version exists? The version that we have bought is v6 from January this year.
Thanks a lot.

Cheers,

Martin

Re: Update of chapter 4 ("simple" server)?
I just pulled down the server from Git this morning. Didn't run at first for me, either.

Then I ran "npm install" from the server's root directory and this installed the express and jade dependencies. Once that was done, the server runs ok for me.

FWIW, I'm running on Windows 7.
