About a year ago (summer 2013), when I tried node.js and used Express.js as a framework two things came to my mind:
- node.js is a future
- I'd love to switch to node.js as soon as Express.js becomes more comprehensive, just like Ruby on Rails.
In other words, the question was when will Express evolve to become more rails-like?
Last week, however, I have realized that I was asking the wrong question all along.
Imagine being able to build fully fluid, native app like experience by simply deploying a website. Not only that. Doing it with minimal setup and beautifully readable code. You can securely query database directly form the client side and keep a copy of the data on the client side. And there is a lot more.
Think: Google Apps experience with almost no code. How exciting that is?
