What is FeathersJS?


 Many web developers nowadays take advantage of crossplatform runtime environments like NodeJS to write both client-side and server-side code in JavaScript.  As a key component of MEAN stack, NodeJS further helps developers to build a variety of isomorphic applications by leveraging a robust NoSQL database like MongoDB and widely used JavaScript libraries like AngularJS and ExpressJS.  The developers can even accelerate isomorphic web application development by taking advantage of a number of NodeJS frameworks.


 FeathersJS is a widely used micro-service and real-time framework for NodeJS. It is designed with features to simplify development of modern web applications and mobile apps.

 FeathersJS enables developers to control data through RESTful resources and sockets. At the same time, REST APIs provided by the JavaScript framework make it easier for developers to make the web application connect and communicate with various third-party applications and services.  The developers can even integrate FeathersJS with several widely used JavaScript frameworks and development tools.


Understanding FeathersJS

Features

of

A Minimalist Web Framework FeathersJS is developed as a micro-service framework for NodeJS. But the developers can use FeathersJS as a minimalist web framework to write web applications and mobile apps efficiently in JavaScript. The framework allows developers to take advantage of the latest features provided by JavaScript. At the same time, it helps JavaScript developers to keep the application relevant in the long run by supporting ECMAScript6.


Can be used universally FeathersJS allows developers to build full-stack web application by combining services and hooks. The hooks are designed as small function. A single hook can perform only one thing. But the developers can simplify complex web application development by combining multiple hooks. The hooks further make it easier for developers to share common functionalities between client and server. Both hooks and services run on the client-side as well as server-side. That is why, FeathersJS run seamlessly on web browsers, web servers, React Native, and NodeJS.


Provides REST APIs Automatically

Nowadays, web developers use REST APIs to make applications communicate with third-party applications and services smoothly. The functions provided by REST API further enable developers to send requests and receive responses through HTTP protocol. FeathersJS makes it easier for developers to make an application communicate with third-party applications and services by providing REST APIs automatically and instantaneously for various services.


Supports both Relational and Non-Relational Databases FeathersJS allows developers to work with several widely-used relational and non-relational databases. The service adapters provided by the framework makes it easier for developers to connect to various databases, query databases through a single interface, and swap databases. At the same time, FeathersJS simplifies development of data-rich web applications by providing pagination for various services. The developers can take advantage of pagination to avoid loading all data at a time.
