How to maintain Node projects with iCloud Drive

iCloud Drive is infinitely helpful for anybody plugged into the Apple eco-system. My primary development machine is the 12" Macbook, which costs about $1100. I love it to death. Seemingly endless battery life, a crisp, snappy keyboard that your fingers can fly across, an incredible retina display, all built on top of a UNIX system; what’s not to love?

When Apple reinvigorated its iCloud Drive platform, it really got me committed. My two development machines, the aforementioned 12" Macbook and a late model 15" Macbook Pro, share a filesystem. Whatever I’m doing on the road with the 12" can be picked up in a heartbeat as soon as I need more power on the less portable 15". It’s a developer’s dream.
