For now I’m sticking to core functionality because I’m simultaneously studying Angular and want to use that to write an interface.
I wasn’t expecting everyone to use Express, but looking over other projects I notice the code is much more readable and elegant. Not sure how much to attribute to a framework and how much goes to better coding , but I’ll definitely consider re-implementing.
I also noticed when I stumbled implementing the 301 redirect (in the end it was because c9.io was preventing them) was much more is written for Express.js…, so I guess it somewhat dominates the landscape. Is there anyone who would recommend a framework other than Express (like kraken, feathers, etc.)
