Installation
$ npm i moleculer
or
$ yarn add moleculer
Create your first microservice
This example shows you how to create a small service with an add action which can add two numbers and how to call it.
const { ServiceBroker } = require("moleculer");

// Create a broker
const broker = new ServiceBroker();

// Create a service
broker.createService({
    name: "math",
    actions: {
        add(ctx) {
            return Number(ctx.params.a) + Number(ctx.params.b);
        }
    }
});

// Start broker
broker.start()
    // Call service
    .then(() => broker.call("math.add", { a: 5, b: 3 }))
    .then(res => console.log("5 + 3 =", res))
    .catch(err => console.error(`Error occurred! ${err.message}`));

Create a Moleculer project
Use the Moleculer CLI tool to create a new Moleculer based microservices project.
  1. Create a new project (named moleculer-demo)
```bash
$ npx moleculer-cli -c moleculer init project moleculer-demo
```
  1. Open the project folder
```bash
$ cd moleculer-demo
```
  1. Start the project
```bash
$ npm run dev
```
  1. Open the http://localhost:3000/ link in your browser. It shows a welcome page that contains more information about your project & you can test the generated services.

:tada: Congratulations! Your first Moleculer-based microservices project is created. Read our documentation to learn more about Moleculer.
