Host node.js application on Domino as alternative to App Dev Pack

Unfortunately App Dev Pack required a separate node.js environment outside of Domino. This also means that Domino is reduced to being only the database. Personally I think that this approach increase the risk of Domino being replaced by other non-relational database since both the node.js environment and the code already reside outside of Domino.

Ideally we wanted to be able to host the node.js code inside an NSF and serve it using Domino HTTP. This way, Domino host both the data and design as well as serve the HTTP request. If there are any technical difficulties for doing so, please let us know so that we would understand whether or not this is possible.

    Stay tuned for news about node running on Domino.  It won't be quite like your wishlist here, but it should help with some of the setup issues we are having in the AppDev Pack space.

    Due to technical restrictions especially in terms of npm this will not be implemented.

    This approach would be nice, but I'm sure it would also mean a lot of potential headaches when it comes to updates to both Node and Domino.  The Domino HTTP stack is a good example of the potential issues.  Being able to build and deploy a Node app just like a Domino app would be ideal.  Not every company/organization can just spin up new servers to add capabilities.
