This week features multiple task runners/build tools (Bud and Broccoli) and multiple Web Audio libraries (webaudiox.js and jsfx).
Nodyn enables the use of Java libraries within Node, but, according to Alex Young, getting it running isn’t easy.

Broccoli is a new Node-based build tool currently in beta and designed for fast rebuilds and chainable plugins.
