jsdom + jQuery in 5 lines with node.js
In jsdom + jQuery in 5 lines with node.js, Charlie Robbins demonstrates how to create a simple screen scraping script with Node. I really like this because I have to write a lot of screen scrapers, and seeing as my brain seems to like jQuery and Node it might be the way forward for my next project.
It’s pretty simple really, he uses jsdom to get jQuery behaving. I tried to do this a few months ago but ran into problems, so I was excited to see this article.
Node in WebOS
I’m late posting about this even though I was very encouraged to see the news that webOS 2.0 will get Node. Some basic details can be found in Palm’s developer overview of webOS 2.0: Roll your own services with Node.js
My first thought was, “where can I get an unlocked Palm device”? But seeing as I juggle an iPhone and Android phone for development reasons, I may just wait until this comes out (and new devices).
Future Node Conferences
I noticed this post on the nodejs list — NodeCon 2011 — I thought it was interesting because list regulars like Timothy Caswell were enthusiastic about it. It might be worth keeping your ears to the ground in case that event materialises.
If you’re organising a Node conference let me know and I’ll promote it on DailyJS for you.
