actionHero is a node.js API framework for many types of clients. The goal of actionHero is to create an easy-to-use toolkit for making reusable & scalable APIs. clients connected to an actionHero server can consume the api, consume static content, and communicate with each other.
Currently actionHero supports:
- Web Clients: HTTP, HTTPS
- Socket Clients: TCP (telnet), TLS
- Web Socket (socket.io) clients: HTTP, HTTPS
actionHero is ideal for large game projects (MMOs), heavily trafficked APIs, and even API-driver websites. actionHero servers can process both requests and tasks (delayed actions like
send e-mail or other background jobs). Taks can be enqued as a delayed job, or run periodically. actionHero servers can also run in a cluster (on the same or multiple machines) to work in concert to handle your load. Tasks can be alocated to run on
all of the servers in yoru cluster.
npm install actionHero ./node_modules/.bin/actionHero generate ./node_modules/.bin/actionHero start
