New developments in web app frameworks-Node.js

Told to me by the same clever man at NextSpace, whose name I did not get, Node.js is a server-side web application framework written in Javascript, that has been getting a lot of attention.

Even though it is written in JavaScript, you can actually write it in CoffeeScript, a simple Ruby-like language that is compiled into Javascript, so the distance between it and the horrible old, incompatible Javascript experiences of the past become farther and farther away.

It looks wonderful, but I don’t know how to install it on my MediaTemple virtual host account, so I don’t care about it right now. I am too lazy.

On the other hand, maybe it would be good, because I am so lazy, to install it. It is loved.
