Introducing Fastify, a Speedy Node.js Web Framework

Fastify is a new Node.js web framework based off Hapi, Restify, and Express. After realizing that the APIs for most web frameworks could not be easily optimized without breaking backward compatibility, co-creators Tomas Della Vedova and Matteo Collina built Fastify with speed, stability, and scalability of Node.js applications in mind. Fastify helps you build extremely fast HTTP APIs that use JSON as the data format, while also serving as a general purpose web framework.

Hiproxy: A Lightweight Web Proxy Tool Based on Node.js

hiproxy allows developers to easily solve the problem of host management and reverse proxy needs. If you are working as a team where each developer needs a different proxy setting, you will no longer need to modify your hosts file or use a web server like Nginx as a reverse proxy.

Built by zdying, zhouhailong, and Alfred Sang, hiproxy extends the syntax of hosts file to support port numbers and supports configuration through a syntax similar to the Nginx configuration file.
