NodeJS Serving dynamic files

0 votes
I have been using PHP, where codes are put in a file and executed each time while loading.

With NodeJS, I need to use HTML files. A way to do it would be putting the whole file's HTML content into the file that is running the HTTP server, but I'd like to have them in files instead.

I am using NodeJS and Express. How to do it?

You must use the EJS (Embedded JavaScript template) as your template engine.along with express to render the HTML files.

So to use in your application include the below lines in your application.js file 

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

app.set("view engine", "ejs");
app.set("views", __dirname + "/views");
app.set("view options", { layout: false } );

app.get('/', function(req, res) {

console.log('listening on port 3000...');
and then create a folder named views under which create a file named "index.ejs"
html using ejs

then start your server with node server.js and type localhost:3000 in the browser 
express with ejs
