Article category improvements?

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing.

As Node.js is an interpreted scripting language much like Python and Ruby, I would suggest keeping this article aligned with the others and thus focused on Node itself.

For a specific guide on running Node apps e.g. behind nginx and Monit, I would rather create an article with a more specific name, maybe in https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Category:Server_and_Security somewhere. However, the category doesn't mention web applications in general, doesn't include any other similar stuff, and I'm not entirely sure if this actually belongs in the Gentoo Wiki at all, as this is very specific and there are many ways to achieve the same thing. There is no other category where I would see this fit.

Finally, I would change the name of the article to Node.js, as that is the official spelling, see https://nodejs.org/en/.

Let's have a good discussion here! :)

Hi Daniel, it looks to me that the general purpose behind this article is how to get Node.js running on Gentoo. This article definitely can use some improvement (I'm not presently the guy for the job). It's good to have articles that help our users do things specifically for Gentoo; although the steps in this article seem to be more suited for a guide-like article.
As for the article rename, I'm fine with it. It should have the official name anyway!
