The nodejs typedefs on haxelib give you the raw interface to nodejs api
with no haxe adornments like enums or classes.
If you want to see in use have a look at my Http repo on
Tong has an xmpp server, and dion has hydrax, both available on github.

you need all nodejs dev environment.
You need git, obviously, this is the base for most if all repos.
This includes Ruby for tools (best installed via RVM for more moduarity)
Then you need to install nodejs.
Then you need the npm (package manager) installed.
on the haxe side; you need nodejs and you would greatly benefit from using the externs (check my or dion's repo).
Something that annoyed me was that I needed a linux vm to run nodejs and npm (specially because npm is totally broken on windows) and that FlashDevelop runs on windows.
I have been able to make it work using vmware with ubuntu as guest and share a folder (not using vmware tools sharing which prevent symlinks to work) but using 'normal' network folder sharing.
I think you best try it yourself and ask on need!
Hopes it helps,
