Create Wiki — V8 Cookbook

Google's v8 is pretty nice, but its documentation is rather spotty. We figured we'd share bits of knowledge we used. Thanks go to to the v8-users discussion group for inspiration. There will likely be two kinds of articles: example articles and discussion articles.


Algorithm. Frameworks. Screencasts. Mastering Node - Open Source Nodejs eBook. Node.js Knockout. Mongoose « Gradebook. Add Update: Mongoose 1.0 has been released, and we recommend going to our dedicated website for the most up-to-date information and code At LearnBoost, we like to consider ourselves hackers. We look to implement the best technical solutions for our needs then tell people how we did it and hope they fork our code, contribute and make it even better. To make a kick-ass solution for schools , we needed a data store that was scalable, fast and able to keep up with constant iterations of features.

In this blog post, you will read about our thought process when choosing Mongo DB and also more about our technical infrastructure . The team is very proud to release Mongoose and we hope you like it! What is Mongoose? Mongoose is a javascript library that makes working with MongoDB a breeze. Getting Started with MongoDB and Node.js.

Pixel Ping: A node.js Stats Tracker

We even license our stories under Creative Commons (CC). However, in the past we've had trouble knowing precisely which stories had been republished where, and we had no way of knowing how many people were reading our stories on sites that republished them under our CC license. Shortly after the redesign of our site, we started working on a system that would help us solve this problem.

When we found out that Jeremy Ashkenas, a developer at DocumentCloud, was working on a similar problem, we joined forces, and finished work on a lightweight stats tracker, which we are open sourcing today. I pushed 20 more of my projects to GitHub. Remember my previous article "I pushed 30 of my projects to GitHub?

I pushed 20 more of my projects to GitHub

" Well, I just gathered 20 more projects that I had done (or did recently) and pushed them all to GitHub. Quick note on GitHub - GitHub is the best invention ever for programmers. Nothing stimulates you more than pushing more and more projects to GitHub and seeing people forking them, following them, finding and fixing bugs for you. I wouldn't be doing so much coding if there wasn't GitHub. If you like my projects, I'd love if you followed me on github! Right, so here are the new projects: How To Node - NodeJS. Parsing file uploads at 500 mb/s with node.js » Debuggable Ltd. A few weeks ago I set out to create a new multipart/form-data parser for node.js.

Parsing file uploads at 500 mb/s with node.js » Debuggable Ltd

We need this parser for the new version of transloadit that we have been working on since our setback last month. The result is a new library called formidable, which, on a high level, makes receiving file uploads with node.js as easy as: var formidable = require('formidable') , http = require('http') , sys = require('sys'); Essentially this works similar to other platforms where file uploads are saved to disk before your script is invoked with a path to the uploaded file. What's nice about this however, is that you can hook into the whole thing on a lower level: We use that interface for processing HTML5 multi-file uploads as they come in, rather than waiting for the entire upload to finish.

You could even overwrite the onPart handler, which gives you direct access to the raw data stream: Nodejitsu/node-http-proxy - GitHub. Node.js is genuinely exciting. I gave a talk on Friday at Full Frontal , a new one day JavaScript conference in my home town of Brighton. I ended up throwing away my intended topic (JSONP, APIs and cross-domain security) three days before the event in favour of a technology which first crossed my radar less than two weeks ago . That technology is Ryan Dahl’s Node . It’s the most exciting new project I’ve come across in quite a while. At first glance, Node looks like yet another take on the idea of server-side JavaScript, but it’s a lot more interesting than that.

It builds on JavaScript’s excellent support for event-based programming and uses it to create something that truly plays to the strengths of the language. Node describes itself as “evented I/O for V8 javascript”. Evented I/O? As I discussed in my talk, event driven servers are a powerful alternative to the threading / blocking mechanism used by most popular server-side programming frameworks.

This makes certain functionality extremely difficult to support.
