In opposition to previously tested frameworks such as Sails.js the core of Hitchy is designed to focus on establishing a scalable infrastructure for extensions to come, only, rather than including composition of many different features that might be left unused in applications eventually. The now finished revision mostly regarded to the core's request routing support. It is now ready for production by supporting highly flexible routing setups.
Next we will add some first extensions commonly required in applications such as support for data models with storage backends (focusing on LevelDB at first), authentication, notification backends, real-time client-server interaction, clustering of Hitchy instances, client-side application development with Vue.js and more. Stay tuned!
