Express, Koa, Meteor, Sails.js: Four Frameworks Of The Apocalypse

JavaScript has definitely become one of the most popular languages in recent years, due to the humongous demand for web applications. While coding for multiple browsers, JavaScript is almost the only choice for front-end developers. One may argue that there’s CoffeeScript, TypeScript or Dart as alternatives. However, the truth is that CoffeeScript is mostly viewed as a syntactic sugar that eventually boils down to JavaScript. TypeScript is simply a superset of JavaScript that includes several object-oriented language features, such as optional static typing, classes, and interfaces, and it’s still in its early days. Dart is also an object-oriented language which has C-like syntax, but it still compiles to JavaScript for mainstream browsers.

With the birth and rapid growth of Node.js, JavaScript is no longer confined to front-end development anymore, and back-end development is no longer rocket science for front-end coders. People tend to think of JavaScript as a silver bullet that fits in all situations: front-end, web server, desktop application, embedded system, databases … the list just keeps getting longer. In fact, given the wider audiences of JavaScript, Node.js+MongoDB+AngularJS/React has made quite a large amount of full-stack web developers. However, Node.js is designed to be lightweight and provides only fundamental functionalities as a web server to boost web application development speed. One of the good-to-go frameworks that are available as npm packages would be a better option in the real world.
