Node.js - Much more than a webserver

April 20, 2011

I’ve started to play around with Node.js lately, and it’s amazing.

Without to much effort, I hacked up a script that parses my .less files to css and minifies them, furthermore, the script minifies my javascripts with uglify-js.

The node js automagically runs when I save a .less/.js file, and notifies me via growl notifications if it’s succesful or not..

The ease of setting this up, and the fact that it works flawless both on the Mac and Ubuntu blowed me away.

I’m going to beautify the script and put it up on github soon.

[UPDATE] Have a looksie here

If you have a couple of minutes to spare, install Node.js and hack away, it’s worth it!
