Aim

To provide simple means to write thin JSON REST/RPC server with built-in security based on Object Capability. Most of existing similar projects are about providing sugar to do routing and/or template rendering, paying no or little attention to security.

Simple is written in pure CoffeeScript and uses:

Simple can be run as single process, or as robust multiple processes farm similar to multi-node or cluster

Simple talks just JSON REST/RPC. All rendering is drawn as client-side task. I strongly suggest to look at Backbone as client-side MVC.

Simple uses Resource Query Language and provides very flexible and powerful way to semantically map URLs to DB queries.

Simple uses JSON-Schema to describe entities and validation rules. Changes are made to vanilla JSON-Schema so that it could express per-property access rules.

Simple uses facets to expose entity accessor methods to both web and internal business logic.
