Build Compelling Websites with Node.js
Do you love Node.js? With features like code completion and built-in templates based on best practices, WebMatrix makes it easier to write Node.js applications.
Code Completion for Node.js
Many development tool editors have a feature called "code completion" (or IntelliSense) that suggests appropriate functions or keywords as you type. The WebMatrix editor suggests variables, functions, and even npm modules potentially relevant to the current context.
Every project starts somewhere. Our built-in templates provide a wide range of starting points from empty sites, up to through fully featured applications that use Express, routing, OAuth, and more.
Jade and EJS
WebMatrix has first class support for Jade and EJS, so you can choose your favorite template rendering language.
LESS and Sass
Use CSS preprocessors like LESS or Sass to make your style code more effiecient. WebMatrix supports code completion, validation, and formatting of your CSS documents.
If you don’t like curly braces, WebMatrix has a great CoffeeScript editor, complete with extensions that provide automatic compilation.
Publish to the Cloud
You can publish your Node.js website to Windows Azure or any hosting provider that supports FTP or Web Deploy.
