I have updated this to avoid conflicts with REPL special construct,: _ and .command. I do sanitize both usage and require of lodash/underscore and sanitize chained calls that the REPL interprets as commands to itself:

(require 'dash)

(defun nodejs-repl--sanitize-code (text)
  "Avoid conflicts with REPL special constructs: _ and .command"
  (->> text
    ;; If there is a chained call on a new line, move the dot to the previous line;
    ;; the repl executes lines eagerly and interprets " .something" as a REPL command
    (replace-regexp-in-string "\n\\(\\s-*\\)\\.\\(\\w+\\)" ".\n\\1\\2")
    ;; Replace _ with __ because underscore is a special thing in the REPL
    (replace-regexp-in-string "\\_<_\\." "__.")
    ;; Replace var _ = require ... with var __ = ...
    (replace-regexp-in-string "var\\s-+_\\s-+=" "var __ =")))

(defun nodejs-repl-eval-region (start end)
  "Evaluate the region specified by `START' and `END'."
  (let ((proc (get-process nodejs-repl-process-name)))
    (comint-simple-send proc
                         (buffer-substring-no-properties start end)))))

Where do I put it? Most of my packages are in elpa.

How about a PR to node-repl?

Hi hi... this looks good, and I'd like to use it! However there's no license notice... would you consider this GPLv3+ like the rest of emacs?
