How can I exit from a Node.js program if it's running?

Dung Do Tien Jul 06 2021 497

I have created a server basic with NodeJs as below:

const express = require('express')
const app = express()

app.get('/', (req, res) => {

app.listen(3000, () => console.log('Server ready'))

Now I want to stop and exit this server when I want to. 

How can I do it?

    Ends the process with the specified code. If omitted, exit uses the 'success' code 0.

    To exit with a 'failure' code:


    The shell that executed the node should see the exit code as 1.
