scanservjs is a nodejs port of scanserv. It's a simple web-based UI for SANE which allows you to share a scanner on a network without the need for drivers or complicated installation. scanservjs does not do image conversion or manipulation (beyond the bare minimum necessary for the purposes of browser preview) or OCR.

- Installation notes here
This is yet another scanimage-web-front-end. Why?
- I wanted a simple server which would simply scan an image with as little dependency on other software as possible. I already have Photoshop / GIMP I don't need a webapp to do that stuff
- Desire for easier and cleaner set up and configuration
- Separation of presentation and control logic with json-rpc
- I just wanted to
- Setup page (auto diagnostics)
- Configuration page for debugging set up assisting new users
- Multi-language support
- This project owes a lot to phpsane
- In many respects phpsane is more powerful than this. Scanservjs does not support jpeg conversion or OCR. phpSANE, however, is also more brittle and somewhat dated in its implementation.
