Getting started

Before you get started with Clinic, first let's make sure we install it on our machines and run a couple of tests just to make sure everything is working fine. Let's follow these steps to kick off:

1. Note: You must use a version of Node.js >= 8.11.1

$ npm install -g clinic
$ npm install -g autocannon

2. Confirm that it has installed ok with:

$ clinic doctor --help

3. We have a set of example apps on Github. Let's run through the first one:

$ git clone git@github.com:nearform/node-clinic-doctor-example.git
$ cd node-clinic-doctor-examples
$ npm install
$ clinic doctor --on-port 'autocannon localhost:$PORT' -- node ./slow-io

This will run autocannon against a simple app with an IO issue and once it's complete it will automatically launch the Doctor tool inside your browser.
