The following steps show how to run a simple Node.js web application on OSX. The steps should be very similar for Linux or Windows.
Download avatar-js.jar from the java.net Maven Repo. You can find the current version here
Example file: avatar-js-0.10.25-20140313.063039-43.jar
Download the native library avatar-js.dylib from the java.net Maven Repo.
Current version is here
Example file: libavatar-js-macosx-x64-0.10.25-20140312.062209-35.dylib
For Linux you would download the corresponding .so file from ../libavatar-js-linux-x64/0.10.25-SNAPSHOT/
For Windows you would download the corresponding .dll file from ../libavatar-js-win-x64/0.10.25-SNAPSHOT/
Rename the native library to avatar-js.dylib and rename the jar to avatar-js.jar and put both in a directory called dist
Place the below code in app.js file and place in your project folder
Run the command:
java -Djava.library.path=dist -jar dist/avatar-js.jar app.js
The output should be:
Server running at http://127.0.0.1:8000/
