NodeJS - Run the Examples

LiveViewJS ships with over a dozen example LiveViews that show everything from simple button-based events to real-time, multi-player views. It takes approximately ⏱ 1 minute to get these examples up and running and is a good way to get a feel for the user experience of a LiveView. Let's get started!


Node.js version 18.x or above.


We rely on the NodeJS Fetch API, which is only available in 18+.

If you haven't already, download the LiveViewJS repo.

Run the Examples

First, load the NPM dependencies:

# install the NPM dependencies
npm install

Then, start the express server with the examples:

# run the examples
npm run start -w packages/express

Point your browser to http://localhost:4001

Explore the Examples

You should see something like the screenshot below including a list of examples with a brief description, a link to the running LiveView, and a link to the source code for each example.
