Description

What is Node.js?

Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.

What is PurpleJS?

PurpleJS is a simple and capable framework for creating performant web applications without leaving Javascript. It is created in Java to give the flexibility and performance Java provides. It's optional to use Java but it's required if you need to embed PurpleJS in existing applications.

What is Revel?

Revel makes it easy to build web applications using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern by relying on conventions that require a certain structure in your application. In return, it is very light on configuration and enables an extremely fast development cycle.
