I can second this. When I first found out about node, I wanted to write all my web apps in it. I quickly found out that made no sense at all.

It might be a bit more performant than Django (my go to framework), but the amount of time it took me to produce the same work made it impractical.

The one web app situation I would use it for is when I have to make a request to a couple of databases/caches/etc, and each response isn't dependent on the others. That would make node far more performant than a sync framework. But this situation rarely seems to arise.
