33. An app-aware console
(15 September 2014) Sometimes when you're working on an app you need to be able to run arbitrary commands. You want to play with your app's modules without running a server. You just want to be able to execute arbitrary statements and immediately see the results. You want a REPL, or read-eval-print-loop that knows about your application. You can achieve this with the basic `node` command and a few `require` statements, but why stop there when you can get crazy with it? That's exactly what we do in this episode.
