Description

Nest is a powerful web framework for Node.js, which helps you effortlessly build efficient, scalable applications. It uses modern JavaScript, is built with TypeScript and combines best concepts of both OOP (Object Oriented Progamming) and FP (Functional Programming).

It is not just another framework. You do not have to wait on large community, because Nest is built with awesome, popular well-known libraries - Express and socket.io! It means, that you could quickly start using framework without worrying about a third party plugins.

Nest is inspired by Spring and Angular.

Installation

$ npm install --save nest.js

Philosophy

JavaScript is awesome. This language is no longer just a trash to create simple animations in the browser. Right now, the front end world is rich in variety of tools. We have a lot of amazing frameworks / libraries such as Angular, React or Vue, which improves our development process and makes our applications fast and flexible.

Node.js gave us a possibility to use this language also on the server side. There are a lot of superb libraries, helpers and tools for node, but non of them do not solve the main problem - the architecture. They just helps us to create faster, easier and produce cleaner code.

We want to create scalable, modern and easy to maintain applications. Nest is a solution.
