It is not a secret that the use of frameworks allows the development of projects more quickly, facilitate scalability and code maintenance.
However, here are the available insights of the frameworks that really work better, achieve high quality code and build powerful web applications:
Express.JS, this is the most popular Node.JS development framework for Node.JS through the Internet and among web developers. Using a robust set of functionalities developers can create single, multi-page or hybrid web applications.
Express.JS is based on Connect, which is an extensible HTTP server management framework which provides high-performance plugins known as middleware. Middleware is software that assists an application to interact or communicate with other applications, software, networks, hardware and/or operating systems.
Sails.JS is a framework which handles the same good practices as other admired giants like Django and Ruby On Rails. In it, you can develop API’s and applications of very high level for your projects, without losing so much time in the details and focusing on the construction of the product.
It is made under the Express framework including several layers of abstraction to make development easier. It has an ORM, methods to create RESTful API and support to handle requests in real time, thanks to Socket.io. It is especially good for making applications that work in real time, such as chats, games, or collaborative applications.
Derby is a framework for building applications in real time which work both in the browser and in Node.JS. It is proposed as a solution to the disorder caused by adding dynamism to classic MVC applications and implicit duplication by including an MVC structure in client side. The documentation and the degree of development of the project are limited.
This framework allows you to create websites and services. It does not depend on any external service and you can install modules using the Node.JS Package Manager. It contains an extensive documentation with examples included.
Before you hire Node.js developer, our team has observed, every framework has its advantages and disadvantages. That is something our every software developer has experienced. Of course, there is a preference for a certain framework but the one that shall be ultimately used should depend on the type of requirement your project has.
