Visual feed of quantum random numbers built using node.js/express/socket.io: http://qrand-6081.onmodulus.net/. Wrote and deployed this in 3 hours early this morning based on my existing node modules https://github.com/cbumgard/node-qrand and https://github.com/cbumgard/node-boot. Enjoy!almost 5 years ago
Yahoo says: "We scale with node.js" That is probably one of the best informations about node (product side), so many people requesting benchmarks of node.. Linkedin and Yahoo approves this topic.
Released https://github.com/cbumgard/node-dwolla-masspay this week -- makes it easy to send money to your users via Dwolla (like we do in our online marketplace). They wrote about it on their blog here: http://blog.dwolla.com/masspay-nodejs/. Hope it's helpful!almost 5 years ago
Hi all, check out http://node-boot.herokuapp.com. It's a turnkey starting point for node web apps based on a express / jade / socket.io / bootstrap / mongo / redis / passport stack. What you see on the site is what you get when you run the code.
It's not a framework, but rather a forkable starting point with boilerplate and wiring taken care of already to jumpstart a new project. It's a ready-to-deploy solution (running on Heroku with all free add-ons requiring minimal config). I've been doing this solo up till now in my spare time, have lots more in mind, and would love feedback and/or pull-requests. You can fork it at https://github.com/cbumgard/node-boot.
I'm planning on updating the blog with further how-tos, but you can just fill in the blanks in the config files and deploy straight to Heroku. I'm using a totally free stack on Heroku with the following add-ons: MongoLab, RedisToGo, and SendGrid.

Here's a presentation I gave at Klout's HQ back in April on the stack I used to build https://askyourusers.com - I've learned a lot since but might be interesting still: https://speakerdeck.com/cbumgard/into-the-wild-with-nodejs-and-web-appsabout 5 years ago
