How do we use Javascript to connect and send data to HTTP Event Collector?

We would like to know what is the simplest way to use JavaScript in a basic web application to send data to Splunk? I've tried a few examples without success over the past few days and it's just gotten frustrating. Does anyone have any simple example of getting this working with XMLHttpRequest functions?

Thanks!

@sweatherly have you tried Overview of Splunk Logging for JavaScript on Splunk Dev which is currently under beta?

Additional details: When I follow the instructions exactly, we are getting the following:

On the step where it states:

npm install --save splunk-logging

this is the result...

npm ERR! code ENOSELF
npm ERR! Refusing to install package with name "splunk-logging" under a package
npm ERR! also called "splunk-logging". Did you name your project the same
npm ERR! as the dependency you're installing?

How do we get past this? Is there something we are missing?

Hi folks, we anticipate that no one has experienced this? Any clue would assist if this has been seen before with the installer.
