    What is QEWD?

    In summary: QEWD is a Node.js-based platform for developing and running both interactive WebSocket-based applications and REST APIs. QEWD can run as either a monolithic back-end or as a set of MicroServices.

    QEWD uses a unique architecture that prevents CPU-intensive or long-running APIs bringing a Node.js system to its knees, and includes QEWD-JSdb, a powerful high-performance, tightly-integrated multi-model database which, uniquely, presents your data as persistent JavaScript Objects.

    Try it out

    The quickest way to try out QEWD is using the pre-built Docker version.

    docker pull rtweed/qewd-server
    

    There's also a Raspberry Pi version

    docker pull rtweed/qewd-server-rpi
    

    Create three files within a folder of your choice (eg ~/myQEWDApp), using the sub-folder structure shown below:

        ~/myQEWDApp
            |
            |_ configuration
            |            |
            |            |_ config.json
            |            |
            |            |_ routes.json
            |
            |_ apis
            |    |
            |    |_ helloworld
            |            |
            |            |_ index.js
    

    config.json

      {
        "qewd_up": true
      }
    

    routes.json

      [
        {
          "uri": "/api/helloworld",
          "method": "GET",
          "handler": "helloworld"
        }
      ]
    

    index.js

      module.exports = function(args, finished) {
        finished({
          hello: 'world'
        });
      };
    

    Fire up the QEWD Docker instance:

    docker run -it --name qewdup --rm -p 3000:8080 -v ~/myQEWDApp:/opt/qewd/mapped rtweed/qewd-server
    

    or on a Raspberry Pi:

    docker run -it --name qewdup --rm -p 3000:8080 -v ~/myQEWDApp:/opt/qewd/mapped rtweed/qewd-server-rpi
    

    Try out your REST API:

    http://{{host-ip-address}}:3000/api/helloworld
    

    eg:

    http://192.168.1.100:3000/api/helloworld

    Getting Started with QEWD using QEWD-Up

    Information on QEWD-JSdb, the multi-model database that is integrated with QEWD. This is a unique, ground-breaking database abstraction which provides you with on-disk, persistent JavaScript Objects with which you directly interact via JavaScript.
