Using RethinkDB with io.js: exploring ES6 generators and the future of JavaScript

A group of prominent Node.js contributors recently launched a community-driven fork called io.js. One of the most promising advantages of the new fork is that it incorporates a much more recent version of the V8 JavaScript runtime. It happens to support a range of useful ECMAScript 6 (ES6) features right out of the box. Although io.js is still too new for production deployment, I couldn't resist taking it for a test drive. I used io.js and the experimental rethinkdbdash driver to get an early glimpse at the future of ES6-enabled RethinkDB application development.
