Navigate to the example directory:

$ cd ./nodejs-export-server-application

To run this example you have to install dependencies. Run this command:

Notice! AnyChart NodeJS module requires ImageMagic to create JPG and PNG images. Visit Image Magic install page for details. Note for Windows users: you have to create environment variable as described in Image Magic: Advanced Windows Installation article.

And to run the export server you should just execute index.js file with nodejs:

$ node index.js
Export server listening on port 3000!

Notice! Please refrain from using percent values in chart. In node js DOM emulation there is some problems with this and resulting image may be differ from the planned.
