Getting started with Bun
To get started with Bun, you will need to install the Bun CLI. You can do this using the following command:
npm install bun
Once Bun is installed, you can create a new Bun project by running the following command:
This will create a new directory called
my-bun-project with a basic Bun project configuration.
To write a “
Hello, World!” application in Bun, simply create a new file called
index.js in the
my-bun-project directory and add the following code:
// index.js console.log("Hello, World!");
Once you have saved the file, you can run your Bun application using the following command:
This will start the Bun HTTP server and listen on port 3000. You can now open your web browser and navigate to
http://localhost:3000 to see the “Hello, World!” message.
