I have just released seic, which is a basic setup package for setting up an
HTTPS server with Express, SPDY and Socket.IO enabled and Cluster.
In addition there is a facility that enables the workers to easily
broadcast events to all workers, so that socketi.io can work across
clusters even without the redis stuff in that background.
This is basically what I need to do for almost every web project, so this
makes things much easier. Rather than rewriting the same boilerplate every
time, I just do a require, and am ready to go.
I really hope others might find this useful as well.
