I have Mist wallet running on Windows 8. I want to connect my NodeJS applcation to the Ethereum network. I have no idea where to start. Could you point me to the direction I should be looking at? Are there any NPM modules for this?
P.S. My end goal is to create a website that connects through an Ethereum client to the network, calls a contract and recieves return values from it. In other words, I want to create a custom token and issue it to the users of my app. This is an amazing technology!
