    node-uci

    node-uci is an implementation of the Universal Chess Interface protocol for node.js. In short, you can talk to engines (like Stockfish, Rybka, etc.) from node.js without any headaches. Abstracts away the pesky communication and parsing of UCI and provides a sane API to communicate with engines.
