Node Roundup: 0.10.26, DozerJS, Keybase

Node 0.10.26

Node 0.10.26 is out. It includes updates for V8, npm, and uv, and fixes for several core modules, including crypto, fs, and net.

DozerJS

DozerJS

DozerJS (GitHub: DozerJS / dozerjs, License: MIT, npm: dozerjs) is an Express-based project that aims to make it easier to develop MVC-style REST-based applications.

It looks like the focus is on simplifying the server-side implementation so you can focus on the UI. The conventions used for the server-side structure seem to follow the popular wisdom: route separation, simple models with validation, and HTTP verbs for CRUD operations.

Keybase

Keybase

Keybase (GitHub: keybase / node-installer) is a public key sharing tool that you can install with npm: npm install -g keybase-installer. It allows you to associate several keys with a single identity:

In one command, Keybase has acquired maria's public key, her keybase username, and her public identities, and confirmed they're all her, using GnuPG to review a signed tweet and gist she posted.

I think it's an extremely interesting project -- the website is clear, and I like the idea of being able to confirm identities for collaborating with people online. Using npm to distribute the client seems like a smart approach.
