Hi Ksenia-

I was able to get a server started by just listing the port. See here:

var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (request, response) {
  router.home(request, response);
  router.user(request, response);
console.log('Server running at http://workspaceurl:3000');

Are you using Node on Workspaces or your local computer? If you are using on Workspaces, won't work as that is a default local address for a local server.


Hi Greg! I am using console, not the workspace and unfortunately it still doesn't work.

how do we get it on the web page?
