Has REST really won? For external-facing web APIs it certainly has, at least on the surface. However, the reality is that enterprises still have many legacy APIs with a mish-mash of SOAP and proprietary data formats over HTTP.
Rarely can there not be controversy when open source and commercial interests combine. Some folks are skeptical of the commercial turn of events, some have gone so far as to suggest creating a new package manager or forking. And finally, some are asking where the money they donated a few months ago to Nodejitsu’s crowdsourcing project went. In fact there was a lively discussion about this very topic at the BayNode Meetup last week. Here’s a quick cheat sheet for those of you following along at home…
An oft-requested feature is the ability to embed Node.js in other applications, particularly in ways that let it integrate with other event loops and (“while you’re at it”) with support for multiple Node execution contexts: that is, the ability to have multiple instances of Node co-exist peacefully within the same process.
