I think NodeJS has a strong future but I’m not sure about the market for buying and selling NodeJS apps.
As you mentioned it would require a buyer who is aware of what it takes to get a NodeJS app up and running but that is the case for any script. The difference is that PHP is pretty much everywhere.
I tried to get feedback on this a week ago and barely got a response.
I may still create NodeJS items but I won’t expect it to sell well… at least not anytime soon. I would expect sales to be real slow unless Envato does a promotion around it like they did with the Ghost blogging platform (based on NodeJS).
I found this page in the new help section which got me excited about a NodeJS category. Is it coming soon? I don’t see it in the options. If you are interested in a NodeJS category here on CodeCanyon then chime in!
Yeah, well, how do you think users will handle command line, like compiling node from source, installing different modules using npm and so on ….
I agree with a node category, however, if we’re talking about modules, I think that there is all you need on the repos.cheers!
I think users would do fine with installing scripts just like they are fine installing PHP scripts. You don’t need to compile node from source (only for advanced stuff).
I think selling full applications would be the goal… not modules. Unless you have a module that solves a unique problem that required a lot of work.
Tried to find more NodeJS items but didn’t see anything more then the handful of items.
If Envato did a promotion like they did with Tumblr, Ghost and some other categories on Themeforest, I think we’d see more NodeJS items and purchases.
Is anyone else interested in NodeJS items??
Maybe there’s not a market for NodeJS apps yet.
300 Sales for StoreApp! 500 Total Sales… Yay!!
Thanks Envato Market
