GW2API is a nodeJS module designed to help facilitate communication with the excellent Guild Wars 2 API. It features several convenience methods that chain calls together in order to make more friendly results, as well as an internal storage mechanism to cache the results of calls without much effort.


var gw2 = require('gw2-api');
var api = new gw2.gw2();
api.setStorage(new gw2.memStore());

console.log("Getting Daily PVE Achivements: ");

api.getDailyAchievements().then(function (res) {
  if (!res.pve) {

  var achievementIds = [];

  for (var i = 0, len = res.pve.length; i < len; i++) {

  return api.getAchievements(achievementIds);
}).then(function (res) {
  for (var i = 0, len = res.length; i < len; i++) {

Because I needed a way to convert odt files to pdf files on the fly (and whenever they were updated in Dropbox), I wrote a quick Dockerfile to wrap up some common functionality in order to watch a mounted volume.

It uses fswatch to watch the filesystem (using the poll method since inotify generates around 12 calls per Dropbox file change) and a small shell script to invoke Libreoffice's command line.

Phantom Jetstream

Phantom Jetstream is a front-end performance testing tool written on top of phantomjs which provides reporting and metric tracking of various performance statistics. It can be set up to fail with a non-zero exit code if the longest resource load time takes longer than some number of seconds, or if {X} header isn't present or set to a wrong value.

It features a basic event dispatching system that can be used to hook into the checks it is doing.
