Here is a recap of the Node.js related content we posted in the last week, upcoming events, plus StrongLoop related articles we came across on the web.
StrongLoop is excited to announce the immediate availability of StrongLoop Process Manager, the industry’s best deployment and runtime management solution for Node clustering. StrongLoop’s Process Manager improves upon existing community cluster management efforts such as forever and pm2 by adding:
- A graphical interface via StrongLoop Arc
- nginx load balancing integration
- Remote management
- Automated build and multi-host deploy
- Integrated monitoring and profiling
Tuesday’s announcement of the creation of the Node Foundation backed by a number of founding sponsors who are all big names left a few folks asking, “is this big companies taking over Node?” “What about io.js?” The Hacker News thread seemed to leave a few folks confused as to what the future holds for node.js and io.js, the two mostly-compatible forks. My prediction: io.js and Node.js will unify.
Part of what makes Node.js so great is the wide variety of high-quality modules available on npm. But, way too many modules don’t take advantage of testing tools like Travis and Coveralls. Travis is a lightweight continuous integration tool that runs tests on every commit to your GitHub repo, even pull requests. Coveralls is a test coverage reporter that you can integrate with Travis. These tools improve your workflow, make reviewing pull requests easier, and make users more confident in your module’s quality. In this article, you’ll learn how to integrate these tools with mocha and istanbul for a simple Node project.
StrongLoop is excited to announce that GoDaddy has selected its solutions to assist in developing both public and private APIs using Node.js. The new GoDaddy API’s make it easier for its business partners to buy and sell domains and associated GoDaddy products. This popular program represents a growing revenue stream for GoDaddy, and is critically important to GoDaddy’s Internet of Things enablement strategy.
It has been an exciting year so far for Node! Not only has there been tremendous adoption by Node in the enterprise, but in the last week we’ve also seen Node v0.12 finally get released plus the Node project officially move into a foundation with an open governance model.
