Sheikh Heera has posted an nice article about AdonisJS framework - a Laravel-ish Node Framework.

Adonis Laravel

You can download the framework at:

As a web application developer, I mostly work using PHP and Laravel framework as a back end developer and use Javascript for front end, mostly jQuery and other micro libraries. Also, love to code using Angular. So, I’ve a good understanding of Javascript as well but never use it for back end. Well, as Node provides us the ability to use Javascript to write web application which runs on server. This is really awesome and I’ve played with it using Express framework.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. Node.js allows the creation of Web servers and networking tools using JavaScript and a collection of “modules” that comes with Node (written in javascript) to handle the various core functionality. So, it’s a platform where we can run web applications written in Javascript.

So, as a Node framework, Express is very popular one and most of the Node developers use it and I’ve tried it as well. It’s really nice. The most used technologies to build a web application by the Javascript developers are Mongo (NoSql Database), Express (Javascript Back End Framework), Angular (Javascript Front End Framework) and Node (JavaScript Web Development Platform) and these are known as MEAN stack tools or who uses these technologies known as MEAN stack developers. Anyways, it’s not a new concept and I’m not going to write how to develope web application using Node or MEAN stack tools.
