Treeline is a project by the Sails core team to make Node.js more approachable. Think about it like blueprints for everything- web servers, APIs, background processes, devops scripts. To learn more about the project, please visit our website.

The underlying technology at work is mostly composed of a number of open-source modules which are a collaborative effort from the Sails.js and node-machine projects.



If you are interested in contributing to any of these modules, please follow the directions outlined in the relevant repo(s). Feature requests, bug reports, patches, tests, documentation, or even proof-reads are all welcome :)

The Treeline.io Beta

So... Treeline is not publicly available yet. We're working very hard to get ready for GA, especially on docs and examples. For the latest release schedule, check out our website or @treeline on Twitter.

If you're interested in beta testing, please visit our website and sign up for early access.

If you're a Sails.js contributor still waiting on your beta code, hit me up on Twitter (@mikermcneil) and I'll set up your account personally.


This module is developed and actively maintained with the help of these contributors:
