The Explainer - Node.js Version
This sample implements a Node.js client and server that talk the Explainer Protocol.
The Explainer is totally inspired by Natalie Silvanovich’s Hardware Excuse Generator
Node doesn’t need protocol compilation, so setup is as simple as installing the grpc module.
The module and other dependencies are in
package.json, so install as usual:
$ npm install
Test Drive - Node.js Client
I don’t have a node.js server yet, so using the ruby version Start the server in one console window..
$ cd ../ruby $ ./explainer.rb ShiFu is waiting to explain all of your problems...
Now try the node.js client in another:
$ node ./explain.js Here's some help: Describe your problem in a sentence, using the text "REASON" where-ever you'd like a good excuse inserted e.g. "Glitching was not a viable attack because of REASON" $ node ./explain.js "Your laptop is crashing because of REASON" Your laptop is crashing because of a lack of shielding against alpha radiation (cosmic rays) in antenna
