What is Sails JS?

Sails JS Benefits

100% JavaScript

Like other MVC frameworks, Sails is built with an emphasis on developer happiness and a convention-over-configuration philosophy.

Any database

Sails bundles a powerful ORM, Waterline, which provides a superficial data access layer that works, no matter what database you're using.

Powerful associations

Sails offer a new take on the familiar relational model aimed at making data modelling more practical.

Auto-generate REST APIs

Sails come with blueprints that help jumpstart your app's backend without writing any code. Just run sails generate api groovy.

Out of the box WebSockets Support

In the past, adding real-time/"comet" features meant maintaining two separate code bases. But since the request interpreter in Sails translates incoming socket messages for you.

Flexible asset pipeline

If you are building an app for the browser, you're in luck. Sails ships with Grunt- which means your entire front-end asset workflow is entirely customizable.

Reusable Security Policies

Sails provides basic security and role-based access control by default in the form of policies - simple, reusable middleware functions that run before your controllers and actions.

Front-end agnostic

While the promise of "one language/framework to rule them all" is certainly enticing, it isn't always realistic. Sails is compatible with any front-end strategy.

Rock-solid foundation

Sails is built on Node.js, a popular, lightweight server-side technology that allows developers to write blazing fast, scalable network applications in JavaScript.
