comment JS Async: . Can I forget callbacks all together and replace with promises and/or generators
Promises will be a lot, lot cleaner than plain callbacks. But, keep in mind that promises work via callbacks too, they just offer you a lot more functionality and structure for use with those callbacks.

comment What is the best way to go about storing application options: file system or db?
File system vs. database Google search. Lots of articles to read. The answer is that "it depends" upon a lot of factors that are unique to your particular application.

comment Why is it common to put an underscore before a method in JavaScript?
Often, an underscore prefix means this method is not meant for public consumption. I don't know about jQuery UI specifically.

comment Are web sockets a browser feature or supplied by a specific OS version?
@AlexLL - All versions of OSes have TCP/IP which is the only thing webSockets need from the OS. So, yes you can run the latest Firefox on XP (if Firefox chooses to support XP) and webSockets will work there.

comment Executing scripts in parallel based on dependency tree
You get parallelism from the OS by spawning separate processes for each task you want to run in parallel. You get serial execution by running one task and then monitoring its completion before you start the next task. The specifics of how to do this depend entirely upon which development environment you choose to write the controlling program in.

comment Is there any reason to use the “var” keyword in ES6?
I haven't tried this yet (since I'm not yet writing ES6 code), but it seems that using var as a conscious indicator that this variable is intended to be scoped to the entire function might be a useful "self-documenting" convention.

comment Should I prefer classes or singletons in JavaScript/Node?
I wouldn't design yourself into a singleton design unless the type of object could NEVER have more than one. If you might ever want more than one, then you may as well design an object that you can instantiate more than one of.

comment Why is the Document Object Model the view?
The DOM is the visual representation or visual presentation. Most people would call that the view (what you see and what a user interacts with). It's the Document Object Model to the browser which just means it's the structure that the browser uses to display things, but it's not the data model or object model of your app. Yes, the terminology is a bit unfortunate, but it's not your app's model - that would be something completely different.

comment JavaScript program design: to what degree should I separate logic and display?
My preferred answer here is that you should assess your immediate goal and any likely future goals you might have with this code and find a design that is clear, concise, extensible in likely directions, yet efficient in implementation. This means you don't go way out of your way to decouple things that are unlikely to need to be decoupled, but at the same time, you pick an intelligent architecture that is easy to understand, implement, debug and produce solid maintainable code with while meeting the needs of your immediate project and any likely follow-on projects.

comment JavaScript program design: to what degree should I separate logic and display?
Javascript, by its nature is NO more coupled to the HTML and CSS than you write it to be. Your Javascript code has no generic coupling to your HTML or CSS unless you make it be coupled. So, I think your supposition here is entirely flawed that by its nature things are coupled - they aren't.
