Follow the instructions in Using Arc to run Arc and log in.
Use Arc App Controller to run an application.
The application must have one of the following in the root directory (where you're running Arc):
- Main application script file named
package.jsonfile with a
mainproperty specifying the main application script file.
To run an application:
- Click at the upper right of the view to display App Controller, shown at right.
- Click the Start button to start the application.
When the application has initialized and is ready to accept requests, it will say RUNNING along with a link to the application root, by default http://localhost:3000/ for the local application.
Click Stop to stop a running application.
Typically, you'll see feedback in the console where you started Arc, for example, for a standard scaffolded LoopBack application:
To stop the application, click the Stop button.
After making changes to the application, click Restart button to restart the application so you can see the changes.
