    So I've been looking into Node.jsjsjs $lately$. $It$ $seems$ $really$ $cool$ $and$ $all$ $and$ $I$ $really$ $want$ $to$ $do$ $something$ $with$ $it$ $but$ $I$ $can$'$t$ $really$ $come$ $up$ $with$ $anything$ ($yet$) $where$ $it$ $makes$ $sense$ $to$ $use$ $this$ $as$ $a$ $WebOS$ $background$ $service$?

    Any of you already have ideas?

    FILE I/O!!! Finally!

    Actually, now that we'll be getting hybrid apps, I may prefer to do File I/O with a PDK plugin. We'll have to see what's better.

    Ok I did something (that I'll be using in a killer app I'm planning). This is slowly starting to make sense!

    So, can someone please explain what the benefit of Node.jsjsjs $is$?

    As in, from my limited understanding, Palm has stated that switching from Java to Node.jsjsjs $will$ $introduce$ $speed$ $improvements$ $to$ $the$ $overall$ $OS$. $So$, $besides$ $an$ &$quot$;$optimization$&$quot$;, $of$ $sorts$, $what$ $benefit$ $does$ $Node$.$js$ $provide$ $to$ $developers$?

    Is Node.jsjsjs $a$ $way$ $to$ $use$ $javascript$ $in$ $a$ $server$-$side$ $app$? $O_o$

    edit: Here's some points I found on the internetz:
    • It is a command line tool. You download a tarball, compile and install the source.
    • It let's you run JavaScript programs by typing 'node my_app.jsjsjs' $in$ $your$ $terminal$.
    • The JSJSJS $is$ $executed$ $by$ $the$ $V8$ $javascript$ $engine$ ($the$ $thing$ $that$ $makes$ $Google$ $Chrome$ $so$ $fast$).
    • Node provides a JavaScript API to access the network and file system

    As im looking more into Node.jsjsjs, $I$'$m$ $getting$ $a$ $bit$ $more$ $excited$, $despite$ $the$ $fact$ $that$ $I$ $have$ $no$ $idea$ $what$ $it$ $really$ $is$.

    Can anyone say a WebOS-only MMORPG?

    We have several apps planned that will use Node.jsjsjs ($things$ $that$ $aren$'$t$ $out$ $yet$ $in$ $all$ $of$ $the$ $App$ $Catalog$), $though$ $we$ $cannot$ $mention$ $any$ $details$ $on$ $the$ $apps$.

    I can say that many people will be pleasantly surprised with some of our apps.

    If I get the time I will make a Google Voice app with it.

    I echo Blubble's enthusiasm

    As least based on Node.jsjsjs'$s$ $API$ $sheet$, $it$ $may$ $be$ $possible$ $to$ $replace$ $90$% $of$ $FileMgr$'$s$ $functionality$ $with$ $Node$.$js$-$based$ $code$. $Meaning$ $it$ $may$ $be$ $possible$ $to$ $one$ $day$ $see$ $an$ $App$ $Catalog$-$allowed$ $variant$ $of$ $Internalz$
