node-session is a great tool for the barebones Node.js web server, which will allow you to store user sessions. And the code is simple, to boot!
Node-multipost is an easy-to-use Node.js interface for sending multipart/form requests. Node-multipost takes all the difficulty out of multipart requests.
Node-ass is a solution for node.js based web servers that allows the server to do the parsing of the advanced style sheets, rather than the user.

I've worked a few different jobs in my (so far) short working life. Each one I considered fairly carefully, and made sure that by taking the job I was pursuing the things I prioritized most. My first job I got when I was 18; I was freshly married, pretty broke, and eager to get started in the "real world". I didn't know much at the time about working or money, but I did know that I suddenly had a wife to supply for, and that I needed money. Money was my priority. I was offered a job doing IT at a commercial printing company. The pay was fine - way less than I make today, but way more than most 18-year-olds with no professional experience can expect to make. Even with the low starting pay, I knew there was room for extreme salary growth, so I took the job. Within a year I was making 60% more than my starting salary.
Many moons ago I released a Node.js tool called Simple-API. Simple-API is a "A Node.js API Scaffolding Library"; essentially that means that Simple-API makes it incredibly easy to quickly build an API in Node.js. I use it for all of my own development, and have found it to be incredibly quick and useful.
I've been doing web development for quite awhile now. Maybe not relatively to the rest of web developers, but relative to my lifetime, it's been a long time. I've learned a lot in this time; languages, processes, servers, hosts, best practices, hacks, and a lot of ways to break things. I learn new things because the old ways suck. I started writing in vanilla PHP. I didn't like that, so I started using CodeIgniter, and then Zend. I still didn't like that, so I decided to give up on PHP and use node.js. I love it. All this learning has been for the goal of building the best web development process ever. I think I'm getting close.
