@mikeal
i doubt that part is in JS :)

I will try to carve out some time to do some stuff around node-forward/help, but my primary objective there is to find as many people that I can delegate to as possible
anybody who's interested is welcome to get commit / moderation rights
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
ya, the README should say that :)
Forrest L Norvell
@othiym23
good point
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
also, moderation isn't quite a concern yet since there are no questions yet :)

@othiym23
my goal is to see how far I can get with that repo without having to open a text editor
so far I created the README and got the Gitter badge in there strictly through the web interface
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
good call, i use that web interface a lot actually
Forrest L Norvell
@othiym23
there
that's a start

@othiym23 I'd love to pitch in with help @mikeal I've commented on the issue about maths.

@kenperkins I'm guessing PayPal is using Breeze for their ML stuff

@rvagg I'm updating the Node Forward website with more calls to action and I want to put some stuff in there asking people to contribute to nan, is there a good starting point for that, or an Issue about the changes you want to make for the next big release?
Rod Vagg
@rvagg
@mikeal issues list is where all of it done, one of the main contributors only exists on github in fact
e.g. next release has been outlined here: rvagg/nan#205 - will be released at the end of this week.
I've just made this issue for v2 discussions: rvagg/nan#208 - so far there's only one small breaking change that's slated for it (I just can't recall exactly what it is right now!) but I'm opening up discussion to more severe breakages.

Hello guys. I have had a thought about node and I feel a little like "node" is missing a user interface. And wondered if that is worth a discussion.
Matt Brennan
@quarterto
If by "user interface" you mean a GUI, there are projects such as node-webkit and atom-shell which allow you to write HTML5 desktop apps that directly interface with node.js application code, or tint2, which is more of an extension of node.js which bridges with native desktop APIs.
Jeremiah Senkpiel
@Fishrock123

yeah, and existing browser engine is amuh better GUI than we’d be able to just implement.

Keep in mind that node is primarily a javascript I/O layer, so that should probably stay out of core itself. :)

Chris Williams
@voodootikigod
is there a discussion/place to discuss build targets for node?
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
yeah, there is a /build repo :)
that's where the people who are building and managing the new build system are
@rvagg is driving it
Martin Heidegger
@martinheidegger
@quarterto No I don't mean node-webkit. I mean an access to node without the shell. I know that this thought is sort of heretic but having settings for npm, managing global packages or projects could perhaps use a user interface.

@evantahler
@martinheidegger I'm having trouble wrapping my head around what you are asking for. I read this as GIU configuration tool for package.json files? I've seen something like this for rails apps once: https://github.com/RailsApps/rails-composer
Martin Heidegger
@martinheidegger
@evantahler Well: If you install nodejs on a mac these days all you "get" is a command line tool. Don't get me wrong: its cool. But for beginners it is sort of a black box. I think a UI could do following.
1) Offer a tutorial to get started with the first nodejs code
2) Offer a tool / display to set the global npm settings (and show them): npm set / npm get etc.
3) Offer a tool that lists the npm packages (particularly the ones that are often installed with -g) to install them globally (i.e.: coffeescript)
4) Offer a tool where you can add folders as "projects". Every project added has automatic (visual!) checks for the validity of the package.json (Eventually outdated dependency checks) buttons for all the enabled scripts (run/publish/etc.)
Mikeal Rogers
@mikeal
yes :)
Martin Heidegger
@martinheidegger
yes?

Right, so this article by Lauren Orsini: http://www.donotlink.com/ch53
seems not to have been informed by joyent/nodejs-advisory-board#1
gramergrater
@gramergrater
nice article, a bit long though
i do wonder though, for how long can joyent remain solvent?
gramergrater
@gramergrater
this thing is rad: http://nodered.org/
but i don't understand why ppl keep perpetuating "the internet of things"
wasn't that coined by the CIA chief?

huh. I think some of the features I was looking for regarding performance measuring and monitoring have been implemented already: http://www.brendangregg.com/blog/2014-09-17/node-flame-graphs-on-linux.html
