Nodal (GitHub: keithwhor/nodal, License: MIT, npm: nodal)
Nodal is a web server and API framework for Node.js. It is built upon an ideology of a robust, scalable microservice architecture.
It borrows a lot from Rails and Django so working with the framework made me feel right at home since I used to do a lot of Rails.
With familiar commands such as:
nodal g:controller et cetra.
One of the features that really blew me away was how a scaffold CRUD handles query parameters.
It uses the
.where(this.params.query) where the query params will be applied as a filter.
Which uses a very similar syntax as the filter methods in Django’s ORM.
The developer posted a screencast of him setting up a very simple twitter clone which I recommend you watch.
And there will be more screencast’s in the future. This will definitely be part of the next API I’m gonna build.
