Great Node.js libraries
While the majority of the list is standard fare, there are some in there that I'd never played with before. Step is a *fantastic* looking solution for when you need to get some bits of data in sequence, and don't want ridiculous-looking nested callbacks. Async.js has been in most people's tool belts for this, but Step gets around some of Async's shortcoming beautifully. Request is a kickin' shortcut for that painful HTTP request process in Node, though admittedly with Request's string parsing it might be faster to jump through the hoops of using the native http.request object. Worth playing with . Winston seems to be a pretty sick logging solution, too -- which really pisses me off because I just finished my own custom logging library with multiple transports this morning xD.
All in all, though, this is a really good read.
