Express 4.10.6

A high performance, high class Web development framework for Node.js, the server-side JavaScript platform that has been taking the Web development world by storm
Express is largely based on Connect and provides a flexible structure for creating Node.js Web applications.

Express provides a robust set of features for building single-page, multi-page and hybrid Web applications.

The framework is quite successful amongst Node.js developers because it lets developers deal not only with their backend code, but also go down till the HTTP-level of their app, helping them not only control, but boost performance, taking full advantage of the high-powered features Node.js brought to JavaScript development.

Another great design model that developers love(d) about Express is its agnostic nature when it comes to pluggable technology.

Express is basically only the core code, letting developers plug-in their desired extensions for things like: template engines, ORMs, data storage, pre-processors and so on.

There's no doubt that if you ever go into Node.js development, at one point or another you'll end up stumbling upon or working with Express, the framework being one of the most revered, used and loved tools when it comes to server-side JavaScript.
