Express.js

Express.js is a framework for building applications for web and mobile. Express.js is a common library used by many Node.js developers to construct web APIs. With a framework layer like Express, developers can implement essential aspects of API construction, such as routing to determine how the interface responds to a client request to an endpoint, and what HTTP methods are used. Express.js is minimalist, and makes no assumptions on how the application is structured; it is more of an abstraction layer. In this way, Express.js is a good option for developers seeking to build one interface to power their API-driven applications, which may run on many device platforms.
