Chapter 12. Popular Node.js Web Frameworks

Throughout this book, we've focused exclusively on using Express.js as our web framework of choice, primarily because it's one of the most popular web development frameworks for Node, has been around for quite a while, and is very widely used. However, there are a number of alternate frameworks available that I want to introduce to you. Some of these frameworks are much more powerful and robust than Express.js, while others are right in line or slightly less feature packed.

Most of the frameworks that exist today and discussed in this chapter are still in their early stages of development; some have not even reached a 1.0 status. The use of these in a production environment should be considered carefully and under a fair amount of scrutiny.

In this chapter, we will take a brief look at the following frameworks:

  • Meteor

  • Sails

  • hapi

  • Koa

  • Flatiron
