Node.js + Socket.io + Windows 7 / 8?
I've been searching everywhere but can't seem to find a solution. Is it possible to install Socket.io on Node.js on Windows 7? If not is there some sort of alternative, or do you know of any future Windows support.
Usually node package manager is used, however I can't find a way of installing that on Windows. http://npmjs.org/
I'm currently using Node.exe (not running it through Cygwin).
This is how i'd imagine it would be installed on windows, if NPM worked:
> npm install socket.io
Node Package Manager now works on Windows 7Simply install Node.js and type into the windows console
npm install socket.ioand look in
Confirming that npm install socket.io works perfectly with node.js 0.6.10 on Win7 (remember to run cmd as Administrator).
