Playing with Node.js

Posted 29 April 2011 - 12:43 PM

I started playing with node.js yesterday and wipped together a really simple (and buggy) real time collaborative edit.

If you want you can play around with it:
http://50.56.124.67:8080/

The code is fugly. Didn't really try to make it pretty or efficient.

There is a '/help'. When you first go in it will ask you for a password, its 'password'.

Editing during playback is probably screwed up, so don't try it and hope someone isn't editing while your playing back.

After finals I'll probably rewrite the whole thing.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

you could say it is a server-purpose JS framework.

Does that mean it communicates with the server like PHP?

From what I have heard, I believe Node.js is more like an actual server (ie. Apache) than a language. I have not yet had time to mess about with it though, so i would love to hear JaKWaC's opinion of it.

as far as Iíve read you can code a webserver with node.js, though it is not a necessity. but it usually runs on a server.
