Express

Why

While Node.js includes a standard web server implementation via require('http'), we still desire an unopinionated, well supported framework, which adds a few key features:

  • Routing
  • Error handling
  • Debugging
  • Middleware
  • Open source packages
  • Support community

What

Express.js is the most ubiquitous Node.js web framework, which is managed by the Node Foundation. It is used by our starter kits, both for UIs and APIs, as the basis for the applications.

How

We currently use Express v4.

Commonly used OSS packages

TELUS digital packages

Who

Developers, developers, developers, developers.
