Node.js Learning Resources?
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:16 PM »
Any favorite Node.js learning resources?

Currently reading The Node Beginner Book, though the version covered is 0.4.9 while what appears available currently is 0.6.7.

Started looking through O'Reilly's Up and Running with Node.js, but found the former preferable at this stage.

node.js seems like it's still pretty young and growing. Best bet is probably on their site keeping up with the changes.

Indeed.  Perhaps it's not too uncommon for there to be a fair bit of change in the early days of young and growing things.  I've found it easier to learn certain things in their earlier stages -- perhaps sometimes there is less complexity in the way :)

Apart from the main site you mentioned, the following are some additional things that looked promising to me:

I don't even know what it is, but this question has been asked on Quora as well. I noticed some overlap between the answers you have already been given, but maybe there is something new there:

Thanks!

I hadn't yet seen (or gone through):


The list at StackOverflow looks good too :)

Hey guys, love Node.js and the whole server-side JavaScript idea.

I've embarked on a "pdMultiSite" project based on Express.js (the popular Node.js framework).

The next batch of sites in our operation go live with this new web engine.

I'm enjoying developing it and would like to recommend Mongoose ODM; it makes working with the MongoDB backend a joyful experience with easy-to-use schemas.

Express + Mongoose = :Thmbsup:

Congrats! :up:

We're almost into the same stack! I'm using EJS as view engine.

Yeah I must say I'm not thrilled with the mustache template engine.

Yeah I must say I'm not thrilled with the mustache template engine.

I've used Handlebars before. My mustache got shaved as I actually chose to keep things as simple as possible for this multi-site web engine given it leans toward being more complex than others (by being network-oriented to allow our users to keep the same login on all present and future sites).

A view/template language may an overkill when you can basically re-use what you already know in your target language of choice.

When I was doing PHP I liked smarty templates. But as things got simpler by using JavaScript on both the front-end and back-end, using as much of a single/same app language as possible to avoid "language zoo" kind of grows on you... (for the most part --I guess! Certainly there are/will be most-valid use-cases :) )
