Node.js Question

Node.js MVC framework

I would like to use Node.js to develop a website. I've seen a lot of frameworks here: https://github.com/joyent/node/wiki/modules#web-frameworks-micro but do not know which one is the most accepted by the community (let's say: the most popular). Did anyone tried any of these frameworks and/or used it in production and what is your experience? Thanks.

Answer

Express.js seems to very popular to use as a general framework. Combined with socketio.js and underscore.js these are very popular libraries but they are not MVC.

For MVC I've only used backbone.js / spine.js and can't give any recommendation for the others. I don't think there is a framework with a dominating popularity going yet because node.js doesn't have much use in production.

There are statistics for popular downloads with npm somewhere. See if you can find them.
