Fergus's aim is to enable anybody to get a RESTful API up and running in a matter of minutes. Based on (express) with cli service generators that generate all basic CRUD functionality as well as the Waterline ORM from Sails.js. It is also easy to add custom endpoints and route filters (middleware). A users service and basic authentication come with a fresh install.
Perfect for rapid prototyping of single-page apps but also able to scale nicely with adapters for different storage types (mongodb, mysql, etc).
No functionality of Waterline or express has been curtailed. The framework can be extended as you wish and modules can be plugged in as middleware on routes.
npm install fergus -g
fergus new app_namecd app_name
fergus generate service service_name
fergus generate service car
Would create a car model and the corresponding CRUD actions and RESTful routes at
Coffeescript please. Send pull-requests my way. Any feedback is more than welcome.
