    How about a Node.js section?

    I was wondering if it would be possible to add a new "Sub-Forum" to the "Server side development" section; "Node.js".

    Node.js is a rapidly expanding and increasingly recognized server-side platform using chrome's V8 javascript engine to deliver data to/from URIs and files.


    Node.js is also under-served in stronger community-based forums, most searches defaulting to S.O. threads and tags. I think we could attract a few knowledgeable regulars who have little elsewhere to go besides IRC. It's a win-win situation for CF and the node.js community.


    Aside from Node.js code problems, the technology has a few major sub-topics itself: NPM packages, deployment, and discussion seem like major ones. Discussion would be for non-code questions like "is it safe to use", "can it handle xyz", and "is there an NPM package that does xyz".


    I think it merits it's own section, but that's an opinion. I think it's more factual to say "we could use something on node.js", so a section like "Python" in "Other server side languages/ issues" would be better than nothing.


    I would be glad to help out in anyway i can with this.

    Sub-forums are only created due to high demand and popularity of a certain subject. I've not seen that much about this in the forums, so I don't think a sub-forum will be made for it.

    i think it has higher demand than rails and coldfusion. if that's the case, why do those get their own?

    Dunno, maybe they were popular at the time they were created. There's only been a handful of threads for node.js (that I've seen) this year

    Node.js sounds fun, but I don't see any compelling evidence of demand. Unfortunately the "build it and they will come" does not really apply if there isn't at least a small extant presence to kick-start it.
