        What are some alternatives to ExpressJS and Jersey?
        Koa
        Koa aims to be a smaller, more expressive, and more robust foundation for web applications and APIs. Through leveraging generators Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling. Koa does not bundle any middleware.
        React
        Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
        Flask
        Flask is intended for getting started very quickly and was developed with best intentions in mind.
        Django
        Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
        Go
        Go is expressive, concise, clean, and efficient. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel type system enables flexible and modular program construction. Go compiles quickly to machine code yet has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. It's a fast, statically typed, compiled language that feels like a dynamically typed, interpreted language.

        Express.js is the workhorse of the Cloudcraft.co backend. It's not the most exciting part of a stack, but it works, is very well documented, and you can find a plugin for almost everything you could possibly want. We also carefully evaluated Koa.js, but decided not to go down this route: fewer plugins, less documentation & answers online. I'm also not personally convinced by the generators yield syntax at all. ES7 async functions looks like a much better bet, and with Promises and Babel I can have that already today.

        I use express.js for nightly.zerotoherojs.com and dojo.zerotoherojs.com web apps.

        Express is well-known, lightweight, works out-of-the-box, has great middleware support and has minimal learning curve.

        It is the best framework to start developing a general Node.js web app.

        I'm fluent in ExpressJS, but over the past two years I have moved to HapiJS. Similar results, but I find Hapi to be more full-featured towards my app, api and service needs. I can operate confidently in both.

        We rely on ExpressJS to serve our content simply, easily, and effectively, without the bloat-ware. Big thanks to StrongLoop for supporting this package.
