Simple installation

I looked into node.js and its installation is quite simple. After you install the main binary package, the "node" command becomes available in the shell. So you can create a javascript file and do:
> node app.js
And the app runs.

Now if you want to install a module, you can navigate to your project's folder and do:
> npm install express
And the "express" module is installed in that folder.

I think this is very simple and elegant. There is no fancy configuration or environment settings. It is dead simple.

Keep this in mind when you work on luan's installation.

I looked at various installers and they are all complicated, so I just wrote a simple script which should work on any unix system.  Please go to https://code.google.com/p/luan-java/ and download luan.tar and try it and tell me what you think.

It works fine and it is painless. If luan becomes a huge success, then you may look into Windows some day. You can close this thread.
