A shell script to add to Transmission so the downloads automatically get added to iTunes library. If conversion (with or without encoding) is required from MKV or AVI formats to MP4, this script automatically does that before adding to library. (HandBrakeCLI and FFMPEG required).

This is a middleware for Connect and Express that redirects any requests to a default domain. Based on, modified to work on Openshift platform.
View openshift-node-force-domain.js
Openshift uses haproxy ( as a front proxy to route request to instances of the app.
This proxy does the job of unwrapping https and sets the 'x-forwarded-proto' header.
Because of this, the Node.JS app never sees the actual protocol of the request, unless it checks the presence of this header.
I modified the code written by goloroden ( to check this header instead of ports.
This gist does exactly what his code does, except checks for actual protocol instead of relying on the port for the protocol.
var rewrite = function (route, options) {
options = _.defaults({
