The first draft of the tutorial is here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:SSethi_(WMF)/Sandbox/My_first_NodeJS_OAuth_tool. The tool works locally, a few more tweaks to get it to work in the Toolforge environment.

Very nice. One thing: when I last coded a nodejs toolforge web tool I found that express actually receives the toolname in the uri, i.e. if you request tools.wmflabs.org/toolname/ it receives /toolname/, unlike uwsgi which mounts / on /toolname/. Could you confirm whether that is still the case? If so, do you think it would worth to figure out a way to do the 'mount'?

@zhuyifei1999 Sorry for the late reply! Your comment here was helpful and you were right, express receives the tool name in the URI. I am now using the express router middleware that helps mount sub-apps on a mount point. I couldn't find anything cleaner than this :P I've made the related changes to the tutorial.
