    Hi Daniel!
    Is it possible to use some features of the processing lib inside the nodejs server code?
    I wonder if I could do some common physics processing in the server, for a game based in physics like a snooker game, and send back to all players only the result so the game develops equally in all players screens.. can I do that?
