Asynchronous JavaScript Class Frameworks

5 generations of Node.js frameworks aiming asynchronous class philosophy designed for different generations of ECMAScript. They are esfunctional, samfic, es7frame, and clasync. Esfunctional is emulating co-routines with promises-on-generators, while clasync is using the latest ECMAScript features of async and functionals.


Abstract Mongoose plugin allowing usage of "pre" and "post" hooks on internal direct wrappers to database API for all (including static) Mongoose operations. Along with this, there are four mongoose-hook-based plugins in the GitHub repository: created-modified, adding "createdAt" and "modifiedAt" timestamp fields to the document; ensure-indexes, allowing deletion of unused indexes and reindexing with changed options; custom-id, using 16-char base64 string representation instead of ObjectId; and revision, adding a revision field to documents supporting raw MongoDB methods.
