Overview

We run multiple server processes in two data centers. Each process listens on two ports, one for HTTP and one for HTTPS. HTTPS is terminated by Apache prior to reaching node.js. HTTP goes directly from the client to node.js (through a master load balancer). We do not use clusters. We slice our physical servers into thin virtual machines running SmartOS, each with about 3GB of memory designed for a single node.js process.

Our node.js servers are hapi.js servers using the composer functionality and plugins architecture. We have three sets of plugins loaded: mobile web front end experience (single page app), legacy API reverse proxy, and monitoring.

We also serve original node.js services off another server zone which runs closed source plugins using hapi.

Advanced SCSS

Or, 16 cool things you may not have known your stylesheets could do. I'd rather have kept it to a nice round number like 10, but they just kept coming. Sorry.

I've been using SCSS/SASS for most of my styling work since 2009, and I'm a huge fan of Compass (by the great @chriseppstein). It really helped many of us through the darkest cross-browser crap. Even though browsers are increasingly playing nice with CSS, another problem has become very topical: managing the complexity in stylesheets as our in-browser apps get larger and larger. SCSS is an indispensable tool for dealing with this.

This isn't an introduction to the language by a long shot; many things probably won't make sense unless you have some SCSS under your belt already. That said, if you're not yet comfy with the basics, check out the aweso

A real world usage for git subtrees.
View example-subtree-usage.md

Let's say you have an iOS project, and you want to use some external library, like AFNetworking. How do you integrate it?

With submodules

Add the project to your repo:

git submodule add git@github.com:AFNetworking/AFNetworking.git Vendor/AFNetworking

or something to that effect.

// example function where arguments 2 and 3 are optional
function example( err, optionalA, optionalB, callback ) {
// retrieve arguments as array
var args = [];
for (var i = 0; i < arguments.length; i++) {
args.push(arguments[i]);
}
// first argument is the error object

Cross-platform git hooks for Node.js
View README.md

Here's how this works:

  • Include a git_hooks/ directory in your project, with these two files (plus other hooks if you want, written in a similar style).
  • Add "npm" to your devDependencies in package.json, so that the pre-commit hook can do its magic.
  • Add test and lint scripts to your package.json, e.g.
    "scripts": {
        "test": "mocha",
        "lint": "jshint ./lib --show-non-errors"

1. Clone your fork:

git clone git@github.com:YOUR-USERNAME/YOUR-FORKED-REPO.git

2. Add remote from original repository in your forked repository:

cd into/cloned/fork-repo
git remote add upstream git://github.com/ORIGINAL-DEV-USERNAME/REPO-YOU-FORKED-FROM.git
git fetch upstream
You can’t perform that action at this time.
