My first Node app consumed a Metro newsfeed API, filtering out articles with the highest social score to produce a list of the stories most likely to succeed on social media. As well as a Bootstrap UI, with an alternative version for office display screens, the app also provided JSON output and periodically sent a notification to Slack. I set this up as an AWS microservice with load balancer behind CloudFront, with Forever restarting the app on reboot. (GitHub.)
