    Latest mention: I’m trying to build a simple turn based rpg game, using HTML and CSS. As a back-end code, to calculate dice rolls, would Javascript or python work better? Alternatively could I use both at the same time? I’m a novice to most back-end coding and programming languages. | | 2021-01-14

    Earlier you said that you already know python, and js is quite similar, as they are dynamically typed (you don’t need to tell it what type of values your variables stores), and using nodejs allows you to make simple web servers really easily.

  • meteor

    Meteor, the JavaScript App Platform

    Latest mention: What to expect in Q1 2021 for Meteor ☄ | | 2021-01-05

    Meteor 2.0 is in works and after the winter breaks we can expect the work to pick back up, though there is still a few major things to be resolved before the final release. Also its release will most likely coincide with the release of Meteor Cloud. Most notably we this release will include tree shaking, hot module reload and upgrade to Node v14. Other things like updated logging packages MongoDB bulk insert and other smaller things are also being worked on.

    If child_process.spawn or child_process.exec, or even maybe the cluster module isn’t enough to suit your needs, in NodeJS Design Patterns there’s a recommendation for pm2 to handle multi-CPU stuff, though I haven’t used it myself

    ⚡️ Streaming torrent client for the web

    Latest mention: Developing a bit torrent client | | 2020-12-26

    I would suggest learning about peer to peer connections first, as it is the base of torrent. Regarding resources I would recommend this talk about building a torrent client in the web. Although it is written in javascript the concepts are the same for python. The repo for the project shown in the talk is here

    Not sure how redundant all of this work is but I've used Sharp for Node which is basically ImageMagick. This allows me to write a script for certain images.

  • pkg

    Package your Node.js project into an executable

    Latest mention: The final step: How to package a Node.JS application | | 2021-01-04

    The first option is to use pkg. It is a command-line interface that enables the developer to create executables from Node.JS projects; allowing you to run the app even on environments that do not have Node.JS installed on them. Use cases include being able to share your app without sharing your source code thereby equipping you to create cross-platform commercial and demo copies of your application without needing to re-code the entire application or install dependencies on the machine that runs the application.

  • egg

  • mysql

    A pure node.js JavaScript Client implementing the MySQL protocol.

    Latest mention: How to connect javascript to mysql? | | 2021-01-14

    If you're using javascript on the back end in node you'll probably want a node module like mysql on npm. This will give you an api to connect to the database and execute queries. Their readme is very informative so I suggest starting there:

  • ws

    Simple to use, blazing fast and thoroughly tested WebSocket client and server for Node.js

    Latest mention: First attempt at React app | | 2021-01-09

    I'd recommend ditching and using ws instead. is an unnecessarily opinionated wrapper for standard websockets that require you to use their client and server and have extreme browser support with fallbacks that you probably don't want anyone to use. Use native websockets and you'll have more control and can use it with any client/server you want and it'll be far faster for your users.
