  • GitHub repo Meteor JS

    Meteor, the JavaScript App Platform

    Project mention: NestJS: It's making me cry | | 2021-07-21

    My personal choice is Koa. I love it. If you want something more "out-of-the-box" and opinionated than Koa or Express, then there are a plenty - many built on top of express or using a similar APIs. Hapi, Feather, Meteor, Adonis, even Next. It really depends on what exactly you are building (API only? Static site? React server rendering?).

  • GitHub repo parse-server

    API server module for Node/Express

    Project mention: Ask HN: What Back End Framework with User Management Is Your Favorite? | | 2021-06-29

    I am curious what backend framework you would choose to run with for prototyping an application with run of the mill user management requirements. That is functionality along the lines of: session management, password policies, password reset, user verifications, etc.

    Sadly it seems there really aren't any frameworks that have user management natively supported. The only one I am aware of is [Parse Server](, however it is now somewhat dated and the community is seems to be diminishing. I am also aware there are many libraries that handle this sort of thing which can be added to a more vanilla framework. If no framework comes to mind I am curious what are your favorite libraries for said use case? Any language works.

    Lastly, more generically, what tools / frameworks / libraries / solutions did you use in the last web app you made to facilitate not having to recreate the mundane?

    Thanks for your input!

    Project mention: Show HN: Amplication – Instantly Generate Node.js Apps with GraphQL and REST API | | 2021-01-12

    > Well, yea, but that's the point of my whole comment - Node could have a Django or Rails equivalent after ten years, don't you think?

    It's not that such a thing hasn't been developed, but that by the time such a thing gets developed (for example: [0]), NodeJS devs have already decided they don't like gulp, they like webpack; they don't like AngularJS, they like React (or VueJS now); etc.

    Almost feels like the JS ecosystem is plagued by people who want to rise to dev stardom by making the next big framework, and they spend a LOT of time trying to convince people their thing is the next best thing since sliced bread. I've seen grown up devs abandon stacks that were perfectly fine to spend years migrating to the new thing — granted this happens more at larger companies where resume building sometimes overtakes business needs.
