Trails is a modern, community-driven web application framework for Node.js. It builds on the pedigree of Rails and Grails to accelerate development by adhering to a straightforward, convention-based, API-driven design philosophy.
$ npm install -g yo generator-trails $ yo trails
Trails uses Yeoman to generate scaffolding for new applications, and to create resources inside the application.
$ yo trails --help Usage: yo trails Generators: Create New Model yo trails:model <model-name> Create New Controller yo trails:controller <controller-name> Create New Policy yo trails:policy <policy-name> Create New Service yo trails:service <service-name>
Once installation is complete, begin your journey!
$ node server.js
Trailpacks extend the framework's capabilities and allow developers to leverage existing ecosystem tools through a simple and well-defined API. New features, behavior, APIs, and other functionality can be added to the Trails framework through Trailpacks.
Many Trails installations will include some of the following Trailpacks:
- Windows, Mac, and Linux
- Node 7.0 and newer
