Console with command prompt

rl.pause();
console.log('Something long is happening here...');

var cliConfig = {
    promptPrefix: ' > '

HTTP server

const http = require('http');

console.log('Starting server...');
var config = {
    port: 80,
    contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8'
};
// JSON-API server on port 80

var server = http.createServer();

    console.log(remoteAddress +' '+ request.method +' '+ request.url);
    
    var out = {};
    // Here you can change output according to `request.url`
    out.test = request.url;
    res.writeHead(200, {
        'Content-Type': config.contentType
    });
    res.end(JSON.stringify(out));
});
server.on('listening', () => {
    c.info('Server is available: http://localhost:'+ config.port);
});
