Considering running your Node.JS app on a Platform-as-a-Service provider such as Heroku, dotCloud, Nodejitsu - or testing it with Travis or doing testing & continuous deployment with Strider?
EveryPaaS handles all the annoying platform-specific details so that you don't have to. EveryPaas also makes local development a breeze according to 12-factor app best practices.
EveryPaaS detects which environment your app is running in and abstracts away the details of how to connect to external resources.
If you write your app with EveryPaaS, you and your users will be able to seamlessly run it on your dev box and any of a number of platform providers - without changing a single line of code!
EveryPaaS is available in NPM. Simply type
npm install everypaas to install
EveryPaaS has a very simple API. When you require EveryPaaS, it will detect which environment it is running in.

everypaas.getMongodbUrl() - Returns the URL for the MongoDB service. On Heroku, this will work with both MongoLab and MongoHQ add-ons.
