ExpressJS vs TypeORM: What are the differences?

Developers describe ExpressJS as "Sinatra inspired web development framework for node.js -- insanely fast, flexible, and simple". Express is a minimal and flexible node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single and multi-page, and hybrid web applications. On the other hand, TypeORM is detailed as "An ORM that can run in NodeJS and others". It supports both Active Record and Data Mapper patterns, unlike all other JavaScript ORMs currently in existence, which means you can write high quality, loosely coupled, scalable, maintainable applications the most productive way.

ExpressJS and TypeORM can be categorized as "Microframeworks (Backend)" tools.

Some of the features offered by ExpressJS are:

  • Robust routing
  • HTTP helpers (redirection, caching, etc)
  • View system supporting 14+ template engines

On the other hand, TypeORM provides the following key features:

  • automatically create the database table schemes based on your models
  • transparently insert / update / delete to the database your objects
  • map your selections from tables to JavaScript objects and map table columns to object properties

ExpressJS and TypeORM are both open source tools. ExpressJS with 45K GitHub stars and 7.55K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than TypeORM with 14.4K GitHub stars and 1.85K GitHub forks.

Twitter, Intuit, and OpenGov are some of the popular companies that use ExpressJS, whereas TypeORM is used by Sofit Software, Yieldify, and Certain Lending. ExpressJS has a broader approval, being mentioned in 1202 company stacks & 4118 developers stacks; compared to TypeORM, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to ExpressJS and TypeORM?
    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.
    Golang
    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.
