The node.js world is crazy, in my opinion. Your whole project 
depends on some "obscure" packages. It's a big gamble and a 
maintenance hell. In my experience, such projects are for 
"instant gratification", it makes the client happy ("Wow! Looks 
good!"), but it quickly turns into a nightmare for those that 
have to maintain it. I prefer to invest time in a sound 
foundation and build on that. Some fancy things are easy to 
achieve with bog standard JS and CSS (transitions, 
transformations etc.), this has the advantage that you're in 
control and you don't depend on some obscure packages. A lot of 
info is here [1].
