Can't get css file in node

I just started learning Node.js and I have a small problem with getting data from css file. When I add data to the index file code it works.

Here are my codes:

app.js

var http = require('http');
var fs = require('fs');

//404 response

function send404response(response) {
response.writeHead(404, {
"Context-Type": "text/plain"
});
response.write("Error 404: Page not found!");
response.end();
}

function onRequest(request, response) {
if (request.method == 'GET' && request.url == '/') {
response.writeHead(200, {
"Context-Type": "text/html"
});
fs.createReadStream("./index.html").pipe(response);
} else {
send404response(response);
}
}

http.createServer(onRequest).listen(8888);
console


index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>

<meta charset="UTF-8">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css" >
<title>First node app</title>
</head>
<body>
<div class="header"></div>
<div class="container">Welcome to my first website! <br> This website is created in NodeJs!</div>
</body>
</html>


main.css

* {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}

body {
background: url('http://i.stack.imgur.com/1voHP.png') repeat;
font-size: 100%;
}

.header {
width: 100%;
height: 500px;
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .9);
}

.container {
font-size: 1em;
margin: 0 auto;
width: 70%;
height: 90%;
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .3);
padding: 5%;
}

* {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}

body {
background: url('http://i.stack.imgur.com/1voHP.png') repeat;
font-size: 100%;
}

.header {
width: 100%;
height: 500px;
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .9);
}

.container {
font-size: 1em;
margin: 0 auto;
width: 70%;
height: 90%;
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, .3);
padding: 5%;
}


They are all in same folder.

Answer
if( request.method == 'GET' && request.url == '/' ){
    response.writeHead(200, {"Context-Type": "text/html"});
    fs.createReadStream("./index.html").pipe(response);

So if the browser asks for / then you'll send them the homepage…

}else{
    send404response(response);

… and if the browser asks for anything else you'll send a 404 error.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css" >

So when the browser asks for /main.css … you'll send a 404 error.

You need to write some code to actually handle the case of the browser asking for /main.css.
