How to write and unit-test universal JavaScript modules (browser, Node.js)


Node.js has a very nice module system that is easy to understand, yet distinguishes between the exports of a module and things that should be private to it. This post explains how the code of a Node.js module can be modified so that it works on both Node.js and web browsers. It also explains how to unit-test such code.

I waited for something like this

New Node.js Book from Packt


Node Web Development by David Herron (Packt)

Node.js is the new cool thing on the web, and everybody seems to be talking about it these days. And when everyone starts talking about something you start seeing books on the subject. Some time ago, I’ve caught David’s anouncement of the book he was writing, and was wondering about when it will be available, when Packt contacted me asking for a review of David’s Node web development, which has just been released (August 2011).

I learned lisp and functional programming on Clojure a couple of years ago, but I’m not keen on the JVM, particularly the memory consumption, so I dropped it, and reverted to haXe, targetting Js and nodejs with my type sigs; coding in a…

Kanso Framework

Kanso is a framework for creating web applications which run on CouchDB. You don’t need anything else in your stack, meaning apps are easy to deploy and easy to distribute.

The Kanso framework was designed for rapid development and code maintainability. Because it only requires CouchDB to host an app, you can write web apps which run on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even mobile devices!

CouchDB documents iterator

Couchtato gives the ability to iterate through all documents in a CouchDB database without having to create any view in a design document - thus avoiding view indexing. Couchtato is also useful when you want to find documents based on certain criterias, or when you want to generate a database dump, or when you want to update, delete, and count documents in the database. Since Couchtato is a simple command line tool, the users won’t have to know anything much about CouchDB, all they need to know is how to write simple JavaScript functions in Couchtato config file.
