Node.js Tutorial for Beginners (Part 2): Working With Templating Engines

See the original posting on DZone Python

Welcome back to our series on Node.js for beginners! Last time, we went over the advantages of using Node.js and Express, got our environment set up, and coded up some basic web pages. In today’s post, we’ll go over the roles of templating engines in Node.js applications and figure out how to use them to get some basic HTML markup onto our pages. 

Project Recap

I’ll be basing the app I work on in this series of a project from a Udemy course (found here) that I’ve been using on-and-off for a while. I love to travel, and the US National Parks are some of my favorite places to go. To teach myself Node.js, Express.js, templating engines, and Bootrap, I’m going to design an application to keep track of my park travels.
