For review: Noderunner

I've been working in Node.js for the last year or so, and am starting to share some of the results in the form of little focused server apps that do one thing well. I think of them as snacks, like the ones I released for in-browser JS in the summer. Nothing earth shaking, just useful tools.

The server snacks are also provided as open source, so they serve as good example code to help people get started with server-side JavaScript development. A lot of people want to learn to program these days, and imho server-side JavaScript is a good place to start. It's a very nerdy and deep place, but also soulful and well-connected to both the past and the future. And in its own way, welcoming. (It's a good way to find out if you really like programming.)


Before I start beating the drum about the first one, Noderunner, I want to ask some of the people who read this site who are experienced Node developers, to look it over. Perhaps install the software, give it a try.

Looking for feedback that I haven't made any horrific errors or omissions.

I'm using Noderunner myself, so that's one thing that makes me think it's ready for others to try out.

PS: I started a mail list for server snacks support.
