MVC Web Application Framework for NodeJS written in CoffeeScript

CoreJS is an Open Source Web Application Framework, using the MVC Architecture written in CoffeeScript, allowing you to create Powerful Web Applications with ease, keeping your code clean & readable.

Using an Object Oriented workflow, you can create, extend and reuse classes to be used within your applications. You can configure several environments for your applications, using a common configuration approach. Prototypal inheritance is used behind the scenes to provide a simpler Object Oriented Inheritance.

You have a build system based on Cake, CoffeeScript's build tool similar to Make and Rake. This allows you to automate and configure several aspects of your applications, such as building the documentation, or performing maintenance / cleanup.
