Porla is distributed as an NPM package and can be installed by simply running npm install porla. The idea is to be able to run your Porla instance as a Node.js application, preferrably from a private NPM package.
It is recommended to treat your Porla instance as a regular Node.js application. Keeping it versioned in Git is encouraged!
Using the Yeoman generator¶
Yeoman is a scaffolding tool and uses generators to create basic scaffolding for various things. There is an official Porla generator (generator-porla) which can be installed and used to generate a basic Porla instance.
$ npm install -g yo generator-porla $ yo porla
These two commands will first install Yeoman and the Porla generator into the global package space, then it will run the generator and set up a basic Porla instance.
Directly from NPM¶
$ npm install porla
