Authentication and Authorization with hapi.


via Authentication and Authorization with hapi. — Medium.

NodeJS has been my favorite system to work with for the past couple of years. It’s extremely fast, there is an amazing ecosystem of code, developers have found creative ways to solve new and old problems, and the community is very supportive. Every day modules are evolving and new ones are being created.

During the time I have spent with node, my favorite module and web server has become hapi.js. It has really solved a lot of problems in a clean way that other node web servers haven’t done yet, and with a focus on security first. Built into hapi you have access to route validation, api documentation, logging, modularity with a plugin architecture, caching, authentication, and authorization.

What’s New in Node.js v0.12 – execSync: a Synchronous API for Child Processes

Although Node.js was primarily invented for writing web servers, developers have since discovered other use cases for when to (and not to!) use Node. Surprisingly, one of these use cases turns out to be an alternative for writing shell scripts. And there’s some sense to that: Node’s cross-platform support is pretty good these days, and when you’re writing both your frontend and your backend in JavaScript, wouldn’t it be great to write your build system in JavaScript too, right?
