Welcome to the developer documentation for Prismic and Node.js + Express.js. This page outlines some of the resources that you will find in this documentation.

Introduction to Node.js & Express.js

If you've found yourself here, then most likely you already know at least a little about Node. For those that don't, the Node.js website describes Node as "a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine".

Express.js is minimalist framework built for Node to help handle your website routing & middleware. Combined with one of the many templating systems (such as Pug or EJS), it makes it easy to setup a server-side rendered, dynamic website.

Before you start

If you don't have any previous experience with Node.js or Express, then we recommend learning a little about these before continuing here. There are lots of great resources available to help you get started:
