Async: Async is a utility module which provides straightforward, powerful functions for working with asynchronous JavaScript. Although originally designed for use with Node, it can also be used directly in the browser. Async provides around 20 functions that include the usual ‘functional’ suspects (map, reduce, filter, each…) in addition to your async function.

Request: A simplified HTTP request client. It supports HTTPS and follows redirects by default.

Grunt: A JavaScript task runner that helps automate tasks.

You can find the listing of plugins here. makes WebSockets and real-time possible in all browsers and provides built-in multiplexing, horizontal scalability, automatic JSON encoding/decoding, and more.

Mongoose: A MongoDB object modeling tool designed to work in an asynchronous environment. It includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box.

Browserify: Browserify will recursively analyze all the require() calls in your app in order to build a bundle you can serve up to the browser in a single script tag.

Forever: A simple CLI tool for ensuring that a given node script runs continuously (i.e. forever).

Grunt: is a JavaScript Task Runner that facilitates creating new projects and makes performing repetitive but necessary tasks such as linting, unit testing, concatenating and minifying files (among other things) trivial.

Request: Request is Simplified HTTP request client make it possible to make HTTP calls. It supports HTTPS and follows redirects by default. It’s a node.js real-time framework server.

Sails : API-driven framework for building realtime apps, using MVC conventions (based on Express and

Underscore: Underscore.js is a utility-belt library for JavaScript that provides support for the usual functional suspects (each, map, reduce, filter…) without extending any core JavaScript objects.

Commander: The complete solution for node.js command-line interfaces.

Mocha: Mocha is a feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on Node.js and in the browser, making asynchronous testing simple and fun.

ejs: Embedded JavaScript templates

Jade: Jade is a high-performance template engine.

Vue.js: Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
