Spring is the time when the plants send out their green shoots and look to grow in all directions. Node.js may be several years old now, but it is still in the spring of its life. The options are multiplying as everyone experiments with new and better ways to build websites and applications on the platform. There are dozens of frameworks, and the new growth is everywhere.
What follows are just a few of the most prominent frameworks that caught our eye. They make it simpler to build a complex website, a data-driven Web app, a real-time application, or an API. If you're starting a new project, building on one of these frameworks is a fast way to leverage much of the best prior work and experience to be found in the Node ecosystem.
