Installing node-portfinder

  $ [sudo] npm install portfinder

Usage

The portfinder module has a simple interface:

  var portfinder = require('portfinder');

  portfinder.getPort(function (err, port) {
    //
    // port is guarenteed to be a free port 
    // in this scope.
    //
  });

By default portfinder will start searching from 8000. To change this simply set portfinder.basePort.
