web development. Sails provides full support for data access, real-time

programming with web sockets, enterprise-caliber security, and

modern development workflow patterns. It also offers powerful

productivity features like rapid API development via Sails blueprints,

task automation via node-machines, and easy integration with frontend

frameworks like Ember and Angular.

web applications using Node and Sails. Written by the creators
