This is a module for Node.js that will do nothing on its own. Unless you're a Node.js developer who would like to handle stratum authentication and raw share data then this module will not be of use to you. For a full featured portal that uses this module, see NOMP (Node Open Mining Portal). It handles payments, website front-end, database layer, mutli-coin/pool support, auto-switching miners between coins/pools, etc.. The portal also has an MPOS compatibility mode so that the it can function as a drop-in-replacement for python-stratum-mining. This server was built to be more efficient and easier to setup, maintain and scale than existing stratum poolservers which are written in python. Compared to the spaghetti state of the latest stratum-mining python server, this software should also have a lower barrier to entry for other developers to fork and add features or fix bugs.
