Express.js

Express.js

Express.js is a free and open-source web application framework for Node.js, released as free and open-source software under the MIT License. Express is designed for building fast web applications and APIs. In the Node.js community the Express framework is seen as the defacto standard when it comes to building such applications. The philosophy of the framework is to provide a small and robust toolset for building HTTP servers with JavaScript and Node.js. Express does not force you to use any specific database, ORM or templating language, as it leaves that up to you as a developer, to maximize freedom and choice. Express.js is used by companies and hobby developers alike to build single page JavaScript applications, websites, hybrids and public HTTP APIs.
