A framework skeleton of standard libraries, helpers, and tools that provide a way to effortlessly build and run applications. It needs to have the security, flexibility, compatibility and flexibility for making an application.
Following are some really useful and popular Node.js frameworks:
Express is a popular, fast, minimal and flexible Model-View-Controller (MVC) Node.js framework that offers a powerful collection of features for web and mobile application development. It is more or less the de facto API for writing web applications on top of Node.js.
It’s a set of routing libraries that provides a thin layer of fundamental web application features that add to the lovely existing Node.js features. It focuses on high performance and supports robust routing, and HTTP helpers (redirection, caching, etc). It comes with a view system supporting 14+ template engines, content negotiation, and an executable for generating applications quickly.
Socket.io is a fast and reliable full stack framework for building realtime applications. It is designed for real-time bidirectional event-based communication.
It comes with support for auto-reconnection, disconnection detection, binary, multiplexing, and rooms. It has a simple and convenient API and works on every platform, browser or device(focusing equally on reliability and speed).
Third on the list is Meteor.js, an ultra-simple full stack Node.js framework for building modern web and mobile applications. It is compatible with the web, iOS, Android, or desktop.
MEAN (in full Mongo, Express, Angular(6) and Node) is a collection of open source technologies that together, provide an end-to-end framework for building dynamic web applications from the ground up.
Sailsjs is a realtime MVC web development framework for Node.js built on Express. Its MVC architecture resembles that from frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. However, it’s different in that it supports for the more modern, data-driven style of web app and API development.
It supports auto-generated REST APIs, easy WebSocket integration, and is compatible with any front-end: Angular, React, iOS, Android, Windows Phone, as well as custom hardware.
It has features that support for requirements of modern apps. Sails is especially suitable for developing realtime features like chat.
