Suppose there were an option in the XenForo Admin interface to enable Node.js integration. What new things might then become feasible in future versions of XenForo or in addons?
I've put this thread in "off topic" and put "(for grins)" in the title because I don't see it happening. But I'm curious about what might become possible, and sometimes it is valuable to think about what we would do with power that isn't currently on the roadmap.
I would imagine a separate node.js application that would have access to the same SQL database that XenForo uses, but if there are other ideas, I'm all ears. It only takes a couple of lines on the command line to install node.
Thoughts? Any cool features that might become feasible? I've got a couple in mind, but want to know what the hive mind comes up with.
