Build Better APIs, Faster than Ever.

Build Better APIs, Faster than Ever

Feathers is a real-time, micro-service web framework for NodeJS that gives you control over your data via RESTful resources, sockets and flexible plug-ins.

Visit the website at feathersjs.com to read the Getting started guide or learn how to build real-time applications with jQuery, Angular, React, CanJS, iOS, Android - you name it - and Feathers as the backend in our guides.

Want to see it in action? Here is a full REST and real-time todo API that uses MongoDB:

// app.js 
import feathers from 'feathers';
import rest from 'feathers-rest';
import socketio from 'feathers-socketio';
import mongodb from 'feathers-mongodb';
import bodyParser from 'body-parser';
const app = feathers();
const todoService = mongodb({
  db: 'feathers-demo',
  collection: 'todos'
  .use('/todos', todoService)
  .use('/', feathers.static(__dirname))

Then run

npm install feathers feathers-rest feathers-socketio feathers-mongodb body-parser
node app

and go to http://localhost:3000/todos. That's all the code you need to have a full real-time CRUD API.

Don't want to use MongoDB? Feathers has plugins for many other databases and you can easily write your own adapters.
