Helper to use promises in restify (might also work for express)
View asyncWrappersForRestify.js
* Use restify with promises
* Restify middleware and route handlers are passed a callback function `next`
* which must be called on success, or on an error.
* But you may prefer to define your middleware and routes using promises or
* async functions instead of using callbacks.
* To achieve that, simply wrap your middleware functions in `middleware()` and

I couldn't find a quick example of how to deploy a node.js app using Capistrano 3. This gist assumes you are using Capistrano 3, Upstart, Forever, ssh/forward agent, and an unprivileged user named 'deploy'. Hopefully this simple setup will help to get you started.
View deploy.rb
# config/deploy.rb
# probably a lot of ways to improve this...
set :application, 'my_app'
set :repo_url, ''
# should set up a deploy user
set :user, 'deploy'
set :deploy_to, '/var/www/my_app'
set :scm, :git

View Why Hypermedia

So the brilliance of hypermedia is that it's a protocol programming language: the client is the generic execution environment, and the server is the "programmer" which sends tiny little chunks of programs down to the client to dictate what actions may be taken next, given its context.

The fact that the client also builds a UI is irrelevant to this power. The power is in creating a dynamic, custom protocol by choosing for the client which message structures that will be sent from the client, which is done using merely the tools of hypermedia. The protocol between a client and server is then codified in the hypermedia (e.g. HTML) part of the code which uses links and forms to document the various messages which may pass between client and server, and the client states in which either may be used.

Armstrong's formula for a good protocol:

Client-State, Client-Message => Server-State, Server-Response-Message

But in hypermedia, the server's response dictate's the client state:

You can’t perform that action at this time.
