Netflix, which uses Falcor for the company's mobile, desktop, and TV applications, has released a developer preview of the technology, which can be accessed on GitHub.
Falcor is middleware and not a replacement for an application server, database, or MVC framework, Netflix said. "Instead, Falcor can be used to optimize communication between the layers of a new or existing application." Netflix plans to release a road map for Falcor soon. The developer preview features a Node.js version of the Falcor Router, which is not yet in production use. Falcor Router is an implementation of the DataSource interface, which can expose graph information. Netflix also is providing a working example server for a Netflix-like application, accessible on GitHub.
