Flatiron is an adaptable framework for building modern web applications. It was built from the ground up for use with JavaScript and Node.js.

PHILOSOPHY

No one agrees on frameworks. It's difficult to get consensus on how much or how little a framework should do. Flatiron's approach is to package simple to use yet full featured components and let developers subtract or add what they want.

MOTIVATION

Build a collection of decoupled, unobtrusive tools that can operate as well in unison as they do independently. Promote code organization and sustainability by clearly separating development concerns.

FEATURES

  • URL Routing - A simple tool for directing traffic based on URLs that are received both on the browser and server.
  • Templating - An unobtrusive templating tool that is fast,DSL free and simple to use.
  • Data Management - A storage agnostic resource-oriented object to document mapper for building data models with validation and sanitization.
  • Middleware - A Modern hybrid buffered/streaming middleware kernel backwards compatible with connect.
  • Plugins - A plugin manager that provides lightweight application extensibility and composition with a twist of feature reflection.
  • Logging - A multi-transport async logging library for node.js with plugins for many commonly targeted stores.
