db = require('knex')({
	client: 'mysql',
	connection: {
		host       : options.DEV ? 'localhost' : 'eu-cdbr-west-01.cleardb.com',
		user       : options.DEV ? 'root' : 'cleardb_user',
		password   : options.DEV ? 'password' : 'cleardb_pass',
		database   : options.DEV ? 'trycode_db' : 'cleardb_dbname',
		socketPath : options.DEV ? '/Applications/MAMP/tmp/mysql/mysql.sock' : '', // I have OSX and need mysql.sock
		charset    : 'utf8',
	}
});

What for?

With the passage of the interview in one of the companies, I was offered to write code in collabedit.com. After using this online editor, I noticed that it works very badly and has a very sucks editor (it's uses "long polling" :facepalm:). Then I got the idea to realize a simple and convenient at the same time online code editor on the WebSockets.

P.S: Sorry for my lousy English :)
