NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies Status

In heavy development until version 0.1.0. Not nearly usable until then.


There are lots of fine libs for JavaScript/NodeJS out there. Not so much as for frameworks. With React/Webpack/Babel coming to mainstream it's becoming obvious that there's no decent full stack framework embracing those technologies. So the goal of this project is to become Ruby on Rails/Django for modern JS stack. Not nearly ready even for alpha quality prototypes. Wait for 0.1.0.

There are some libs that should be considered base platfrom for Rjanko and chance of them going away is extremly low:

All others should/must be made optional or replacable.


There 2 main goals of this project:

  • make full stack JS developer as productive as possible
  • use as little self written code as possible, rely on well established libraries, avoid bikeshedding at all times
  • make libs other than core (see above) pluggable

Wanna try?
