Track what users are on which pages with redis.


Depends on fab, ntest, redisclient, and underscore.

There's no packaging system for node.js yet, so I've just been creating symlinks in my ~/.node_libraries path.

$ ln -s /path/to/fab              ~/.node_libraries/fab
$ ln -s /path/to/redisclient      ~/.node_libraries/redisclient
$ ln -s /path/to/underscore       ~/.node_libraries/underscore
$ ln -s /path/to/wheres-waldo/lib ~/.node_libraries/wheres-waldo

$ ln -s /path/to/redisclient/redisclient.js   ~/.node_libraries/redisclient/index.js
$ ln -s /path/to/underscore/underscore-min.js ~/.node_libraries/underscore/index.js


Display a list of users that are visiting a certain page. Using a snippet of javascript at the bottom of your site, you can end up with something like this:

  • HMAC URL authentication
  • Ability to store json data per user instead of just a name or ID
