A little more than a year ago, I wrote about accessing SQL Server from Node.js using Edge.js. Technology can change a lot in a year, and I'm happy to report the Node.js modules for SQL Server have greatly improved. Not only that, but some of the brilliant developers I work with at LeanKit have created seriate, designed to make working with SQL Server from Node.js as painless and friction-free as possible.
By the way, seriate is just "the tip of the iceberg" among the amazing catalog of open source projects available at LeanKit Labs. Expect to see more articles on these projects in the future!
