If you ever had the need to use Intuit's Customer Account Data(CAD) and are using NodeJS we have definitely been in the same boat together.  The boat where there is about ten anchors holding you back because Intuit does not have a module for NodeJS yet to help you.  Sound familiar?  If so, look no further, as I implemented their CAD API with JavaScript and put it in a NPM module called intuit-cad.  This allows you to effortlessly authenticate your customers and get access to their institution's data such as transactions and accounts.

Have you ever wanted to get the scope of a linking function in a directive for testing.  Let me rephrase that. Have you ever wanted to test the isolate scope within your directive's linking function?  You probably have if your are a fan of well written and maintainable code. So I was trying to test my brand spanking new directive lets call it "myPerogative".   Now myPerogative just happens to have an isolate scope like most directives.
