In case you ever wanted to have a Node.js window manager, there's now one that works for X11 environments that works on Chrome OS, Debian, and friends.

NWM is a dynamic window manager for X11 (no Wayland support yet!) written in Node.js. NWM is a dynamic tiling manager that has Xinerama support for multiple monitors, virtual workspaces/desktop support, various layout modes, and a native X11 binding written in C/C++ is what then emits events to Node.js. So it's not entirely in Node.js, but relies upon the binding layer to make everything possible, but nevertheless is cool.
