I have to start this post with a confession – I am a massive fan of Node.js. Although I am not the biggest fan of the combinations of brackets, braces and semi-colons required to write code for Node.js, I think it is a massively powerful framework for building stuff.
I went through the tutorial to auto-generate an application template, which also includes the generation of a line in its app.js file which reads:
No matter how much I search, I cannot find what the ‘dev’ part of this actually means and what other values can be put here, meaning that my Google-fu is incredibly weak or the documentation is. My vote is with the latter.
Until then, I am going to be venting here and trying harder with my Google-fu to find an answer to my seemingly simple question.
If anyone out there knows where I can get an answer please do let me know.
