It is actively developed and maintained to closely track iotivity (it is
also part of iotivity):
https://gerrit.iotivity.org/gerrit/#/admin/projects/iotivity-node
(which is a mirror to [1]).

An example of using it is found here [2]:
https://github.com/01org/SmartHome-Demo

The OIC (OCF) API [3] is experimental and I have made it based directly on
the OCF specifications rather than based on the iotivity C API. However,
the iotivity C API is also exposed one to one as a low level JS API in
iotivity-node (i.e. it provides a low level and a high level API).

Feedback about the JS API spec should come to me. The spec will soon move
to [4], then we can track issues there.
