Codeshelver is open source

Yesterday I took the time to fix some bugs and clean up the Codeshelver code, so I could finally open source it. Some people asked about that and I think it’s a good resource for dipping your toes into nodeJS and get up to speed with ExpressJS, because the app is not too complex (350 lines of code) but goes beyond a simple “hello world” and utilizes some interesting technologies. If you’d like to extend it, feel free to send me pull requests and I’ll be glad to merge in extensions and enhancements and deploy them to

btw: I’ll be talking about ExpressJS and some of the learnings in developing Codeshelver at the next meeting of the Rails Usergroup Hamburg, taking place the upcoming wednesday at XING.
